Investing in equity markets has become the most happening thing in the last one year or so. This is quite evident from the fact that retail participation in the stock markets has been growing day by day.
Most investors invest in equities with an objective to get a decent return and some studies do indicate that investing in equity is one of the best ways to beat inflation.
Meanwhile, the Indian stock market is in the midst of one of its biggest bull runs to date. In just a little over 14 months, the benchmark indices have more than doubled while many stocks witnessed their prices double or even quadruple since the lows of March last year when sentiments had hit a nadir. So, many of the investors might be having a multi-bagger in their portfolio as the rally in the market was a broad-based one where a majority of the stock has seen a tremendous run-up. For those, who are not familiar with the term multi-bagger, it is an investment that has gained several times of its original value such as a two-bagger, three-bagger and even a 10-bagger. The term ‘10-bagger’ was coined by Peter Lynch in his famous book, One Up on Wall Street.
In this article, we will not talk about one or two or even 10-bagger but in fact, about 100-bagger. A 100-bagger is a stock that has jumped from Rs 10 to Rs 1,000. These are rare gems and many of the well-known investors have turned wealthy because some of the stocks in their portfolio have become a 100-bagger.
So, we have compiled a list of stocks that have been 100-bagger in almost the last 10 years. We have considered the calendar year 2011’s closing prices.
