Jhunjhunwala, Raamdeo Agrawal help pick multibaggers

Source : CNBC-TV18

For any seasoned or even an ametuer investor, buying multibaggers are the most attractive option. Raamdeo Agrawal, Director, Motilal Oswal Financial Services owned over 10 multibagger stocks, while Sanjoy Bhattacharyya, Partner, Fortuna Capital owned over 100 baggers. And we all know about the success story of Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, Partner, Rare Enterprises.

But how does one identify a multibagger? Valuation, a company's fundamentals, a business that promises growth over time, management's integrity, rational allocation of capital etc decide if a stock is of the multibagger variety.

Explains Raamdeo Agrawal, "If you want a multi bagger, it has to be bought literally free of cost...the purchase price is insignificant to whatever is the expected value in the next 4-5-6 years." There is also another plot to this story--the market. Agrawal says a multibagger gets irrational quote from the market in three steps. It goes from being undervalued to fairly valued to being irrationally valued.

Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, Partner, Rare Enterprises, advice is that one needs to check what opportunity the business has, who are the entrepreneurs, how much capital is needed, is the business scalable, and what is the company’s valuation.

Here is a verbatim transcript of the exclusive interview with Raamdeo Agrawal and Rakesh Jhunjhunwala on CNBC-TV18. Also see the accompanying video.
