Here are 3 Money Mantras from Mr. Jhunjhunwala.

Money Mantra # 1 - Risk Doesn't Pay, Patience Does

You must have come across these daredevil expressions like "No risk no game" or "Fortune favors brave", etc. In context of investment these expression can be little misleading. Yes, no one can deny that there is a certain amount of risk involved in stock investment, but the notion that only risk-takers make money is outrightly false. As a responsible investor it is your duty to minimise risk factor as much as possible. While treading the stick ground of stock market it always helps to take help from experienced people. Friends, relative, stock advisory firms are the several options available for the beginners.

Rakesh Jhunjhunwala and Warren Buffett are the prime examples of how to reduce risk in investment. Extensive research, minute understanding of business and analysis of future prospects are some of the key components of risk assessment.

Money Mantra # 2 - Buy Right And Hold Tight

This is the easiest at the same time most difficult things to do. Many people take a plunge in the stock market with the crazy ideas like doubling their capital in a month or two. If you are lucky you might even get your capital multiplied in the minimum time but nobody can stay lucky for very long in stock market. If your stock investment hinges on luck then sooner or later you would lose your money for sure. So how to counter this extreme volatility of stock market? Go long. Yes, that's the only way to make your investment fruitful. Identify good stocks and stick to them for a long period of time.

One look at Rakesh Jhunjhunwala's holdings will convince you about the power of long term investment. Every stock he buys he hold for a very long period of time. The basic idea behind long term investment is exploit full profit potential of the company. If you have identified a multibagger stock then what's the point of booking a petty 20-30% profit? Just 'Hold it'!

Money Mantra # 3 - Always Grab The Piece OF Pie

People often miss this money mantra of Rakesh Jhujhunwala. They keep tab of his investment value but fail to track the profits which he books. Though it is true that he seldom sells any of his stocks but when he does it is worth taking a note of. As everybody knows that stocks are capable of extreme highs and steep falls so it helps to set targets based on a thorough research. And when you hit the target you can start booking partial profit. It's advisable not to sell all the quantity in one go as the stock can go further high.

If you follow Rakesh Jhunjhunwala's portfolio you must have noticed that he always sells his stocks in batches. Right from the time he booked his first major profit with Sesa Goa. He had 4 lac shares which he had bought at Rs. 27. He sold the first batch when it reached 60-65 and sold another when it reached 1400. In this way, while managing risk he also secured maximum profit. That's the kind of master-strokes he plays with most of the stocks. Watch and learn, dear investors.
