Looks like one can also open a brokerage account in India as a US Citizen.

Here are some other interesting ideas.


Rain industries => P/E of 5

Dwarikesh Sugar => P/E of 7

South Indian Bank => P/B of 0.5

Piramal  => P/B of 1.3

IIFL  => P/E of 13


Can you share some insights into your thinking on IIFL? Fairfax Indias investment in it hasn't panned out so good.
