The textile sector of India is one of the oldest sectors of the economy. The sector has witnessed a hard time post demonetization and GST transition phases. However, post enough correction in the stocks, sector seems to be much more attractive. With the government's supportive policies and favourable demand scenario, the sector is expected to create many multibaggers. Here are some of the key pointer which could emerge this sector as a gem.

1. The rising domestic demand environment remains one of the key factors for the robust future of the textile sector. The Strong rise in the private consumption expenditure would aid the industry in FY19.

2. An 11% increase in cotton crop production coupled with the rising acreage at 19% is expected to moderate the cotton prices in the upcoming year. In the near terms, the industry has faced cotton pricing hurdles due to pink bollworm issue. The softening of cotton prices would ultimately aid the operating margins.

However, lets list out some of the must-dos of Finding a MULTIBAGGER!

1. Vision Of The Company - The most important part of identifying multibagger stock or any profitable stocks for that matter is that one has to have a certain foresight to understand where the company or the product/service would be in next 10-15 years. Try to analyse whether the company has the potential to stay two steps ahead of its peer group and dig into the history of the promoters. At this stage, you have to ask important questions like -- Do the promoters have an impeccable track record and do they have the vision to take the company ahead? Also, how much is the promoters holding and how much have they pledged?

2. Sustainable Competitive Advantage - Another important point to spot a multibaggers is to identify the competitive business advantage of the company where the company is at such a unique position that it doesn't have any close competition and at the same time, it is delivering exceptional performance on the regular basis. Such companies have a fair chance of making the cut.

3. Identify undervalued stocks - The most important part of stock investing is figuring out how much the stock you are investing in is worth, and whether the trading price is fair. We prefer value investing strategy of the Worlds best investor i.e. Warren Buffet for arriving at the fair price of the stock.

4. Check the bottom line - The profit margin of the company is the difference between revenue and expenses. Any company that grows its revenue regularly at the same time also controls costs will also have an expanding profit margin. Essentially, stock analysts refer to this as a bottom line as its the last line on income statements. Another critical point is Price/Earning ratio. P/E ratio is one of the key indicators of relative valuation based on earnings. Return on equity (ROE) and Return on capital employed (ROCE) are some other ratios related which are used to determine the profitability of a company. In case of P/E, a high P/E ratio usually indicates that investors expect a big growth in the company in the future, hence might even be ready to buy the stock at a premium. However, a high P/E ratio does not necessarily mean that a company is overvalued, nor does a low P/E ratio automatically mean that it is undervalued.

Famous Investors and their Multibagger stocks

Rakesh Jhunjhunwala - Ever wondered how celebrity investors become celebrity investors? To some extent, it has to be attributed to their knack of finding multibagger stocks. From Rakesh Jhunjhunwala to Warren Buffett all these famous equity investors have multiplied the value of their portfolio thanks to their multibagger stocks. Jhunjhunwala's first crack at success came with Sesa Goa. It was a mining company and its stock was trading in double digit. Jhunjhunwala bought it at Rs.43 apiece and subsequently the stock reached the price of Rs.2,200. Later on, Jhunjhunwala made it a habit of identifying multibaggers. From Titan to Lupin, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala's holdings are studded with stocks which have given him manifold growth.

Warren Buffett - Similarly, Warren Buffett also owns various multibaggers stocks. One such stock is Wells Fargo a banking and financial services providing company. He bought the stake in the company worth $290 million in 1990. This was the year when American banking sector was going through a rough phase and he managed to pick up the stake at a discounted rate. And when the sector rose from the crisis the value of Wells Fargo multiplied and gave Warren Buffett whopping 9,417% growth. Now that's what we call a multibagger!

Raamdeo Agrawal -- Raamdeo Agrawal is the founder and joint MD of Motilal Oswal Financial Services. His brilliant investing career spreads over 40 years. He is a value investor to the core and believes that for wealth creation long-term investment is the only tool. In 1997, he surprised the investor community with his audacious trade of buying sizable stocks of Hero Honda (Now Hero Motocorp Ltd). He bought shares worth Rs.10 Lakh at Rs.30 apiece. The reason this trade surprised many investors at that time was that the value of the company was just Rs.1,000 crore.

Today, the valuation of Hero Motocorp Ltd has reached Rs.50,000 crore and it has multiplied Agrawal's stake manifolds. The same investors who criticised him then call him a visionary today. That's how the market swings. Raamdeo Agrawal credits his success in equity investment to his constant belief in QGLB, which stands for Quality, Growth, Longevity and Bargain value of a company.

Kenneth Andrade -- is known as a mid-cap czar. He says that he chooses a single product company which doesn't have a complex business and offers plenty of room for growth. Through this strategy, he has found many midcap stocks which have went on to become multibagger stocks. One of the classic examples of this approach is Page Industries, a hosiery manufacturing company. In 2008, he saw a great potential in the business model of this company and invested in it.

Page Industries went on to become a multibagger stock. It multiplied its value 20 times since he bought the stock. It is one of the most high-priced stocks listed in the stock market today.

Andrade maintains that the method of finding good midcap stocks lies in finding stocks which have a potential of becoming a household name. Look for a company which has a wide consumer base and has a flourishing business which will ultimately makes a lot of profit for the investors. Andrade believes that the investment strategies should be easy to understand and simple execute.

Long Term Perspective Is Only Route For Multibagger Growth

This is the most important part. Having a long term investment perspective increases your chances of experiencing multibagger growth. It's simple, any company doesn't multiply its value overnight (in some cases if it does, it doesn't sustain), hence, it is important to hold your stocks for a considerably long period and give the company plenty of time to march ahead with sustainable growth. One look at Rakesh Jhunjhunwala's portfolio will give you a fair idea of why he has got such stupendous upside in most of his holdings, because of long term investment perspective.

Imagine you have a capital of Rs. 1 Lakh and you invest it in stocks. Six months down the line you get around 25% upside on your invested capital taking the value of your capital to 1 lakh 25 thousand. Getting 25% profit in 6 months is a good deal, I wouldn't blame you if you take that deal. Most of the investors would do the same. But considering the fact that you have bought good stocks, booking profits early may not be a smart thing to do. Those stocks go ahead to become multibaggers and you miss out on 2 things - more profit and regular dividends.
