Sesa Goa (Now Vedanta)
In 1989, in the very early phase of his investment career, Jhunjhunwala bought a whopping 400,000 shares of Sesa Goa in forward trading. This was the time when Sesa Goa, iron mining company based in Goa was not doing anything out of ordinary. It would be fair to say that nobody was interested in buying the shares of this company. But Jhunjhunwala who thought that the company has bright prospects bought a huge chunk of shares at a very cheap price. When the share price of the company reached 65 Jhunjhunwala sold 250,000 shares. But he held on to some part as he expected the price to go further up. And it did, he sold another lot when the price reached 175. The stock didn't stop there as it went on to its highest price 2200 a few years later. Imagine how much profit Jhunjhunwala would have booked?
Titan in 2002-03
Titan is one of the best investments of Jhunjhunwala. Such is the performance of this stock that it stands as a shining crown in his list of holdings. In his quintessential style, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala invested in this stock when no one was giving it a second glance. He picked up 6 crore shares at the average price of 3. Going by his creed - buy right and hold tight - he just held on to this company and till date hasn't sold any stakes in this company. The price of shares, however, has reached 2290 in due course. The stock market is a give and take equation. RJ gave Titan time to grow and in return, Titan gave him handsome returns. The motto of the story is - if you have any quality shares hold them tight till they reach the desired target.
Lupin In 2006
When Rakesh Jhunjhunwala ventured into Lupin the pharma sector wasn't as buzzing a sector as it is today. But the "big bull" doesn't enter any stock when it is buzzing for he believes that it's a time to sell when stocks are hitting the roof. Back in 2006, Lupin was just another pharma company trying its luck out. However, RJ saw the growth potential in the company and took a headlong dive with 73.91 lakh shares. Today the stock of the company is trading at 1400. Furthermore, it is one of the best performing pharma companies in the market at this point. Who saw it coming? Most certainly Rakesh Jhunjhunwala did.
Jhunjhunwala's success can be greatly attributed to the above-mentioned companies. He has picked many winners in his investment career, but we can call these three picks as his master-strokes.
