Apparently, investors are beginning to catch on to the fact that Tesla CEO Elon Musk has a severe case of a behavioral condition known as “the planning fallacy.” People who suffer from the planning fallacy are serial offenders when it comes to projects coming in over budget, late, and with fewer features than promised. The New York Times reported that Telsa’s main problematic issues pertain to a slower timetable than expected for the introduction of the Model 3, along with problems that relate to the manufacture of its battery packs.

Two years ago, the EPFO paid 8.8% on EPF balances. How good is provident fund returns compared to returns in other products especially small savings instruments? Here are some of the features that make it an attractive savings options.

Despite the falling rates, EPF still holds saving advantage over other retirement savings fund. Kunal Bajaj is CEO & founder of Clearfunds.com said that it is backed by Government of India and secondly, while the rates may vary each year, they generally move around a small band. “Importantly, EPF  is tax-free during the period interest is earned as well as at the time of withdrawal,” he added.

Benefit of investing in EPF

EPF can be easily transferred from one company to the other through UAN (Universal Account Number) if one changes jobs. However, in case of PPF, changing the account from one bank to bank to another is a huge hassle if you go by anecdotal evidence. In case of fixed deposits, there is no portability among banks.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Sarah Priestley]

    The last stock I’ll mention is AECOM (NYSE:ACM). They’re well placed to handle large government contracts. Specifically if you’re bullish on these state-funded projects like in Nevada, they are well placed to take advantage of that, design, build, finance, and even operate infrastructure assets for the government and for businesses. They recently merged with a competitor, URS, to increase their exposure to energy and to transportation. Anyone who regularly listens to the show knows that we like a little bit of energy exposure here because of the growing price of oil, and liquid natural gas, and those kinds of things.
