New investors have always been attracted to the stock market by the possibilities of high returns. That is why investors are lured in by stocks that offer profits multiple times their initial investment. These stocks are called multibagger stocks, and they can help you grow your wealth in a relatively short period. However, it takes a lot of effort to find shares with such enormous growth potential.
Read along to know more about investing in multibagger stocks.
Multibagger stocks are those that generate returns several times their initial cost of acquisition. These are undervalued stocks with a significantly high potential for growth, which makes them desirable investments. In an emerging market like India, these stocks can massively appreciate in value, resulting in ‘multibagger’ returns.
Peter Lynch first coined the term ‘multibagger stock’ in his book ‘One Up on Wall Street’. It only tells you about a share’s features and does not represent a separate category of shares. Stocks that double in price are called two-bagger or double-bagger stocks. Similarly, a stock that grows 10 times in size is a ten-bagger stock.
It is important to note that these stocks take a long time to deliver high returns. So, you need to be patient with these investments. Moreover, you will need a high risk appetite for investing in these stocks.
There are no fixed criteria that determine if a stock is a multibagger. You need to identify high-quality stocks that are likely to grow into a multibagger over time.
