Investing in stocks has the potential to turn investors into millionaires or even billionaires, as numerous success stories attest. Recently, I came across a stock that transformed an investment of Rs 1 lakh into Rs 1 crore in the past decade.

Equity is widely regarded as riskier than other asset classes, such as gold. However, alongside its inherent risk, it possesses the extraordinary capability to generate impressive multibagger returns over time. As the saying goes, the greater the risk, the higher the potential return. You may have encountered this principle before.

Stock Performance

The company’s stock commenced the day on the BSE at Rs 1240 per share, surpassing the previous day’s closing price. In the intraday session, it reached highs and lows of Rs 1,257 and Rs 1,240, respectively. Moreover, the stock hit its upper circuit limit of 5% during the day and concluded at Rs 1,257 per share on the BSE.

The stock crossed its peak levels from the year 2008, reaching Rs 670 in December 2023. Following this breakout, the stock has witnessed a rally of approximately 90%, indicating a significant and positive momentum in its performance.

With a current market capitalisation of Rs 20,168 crore, the stock has delivered a remarkable multibagger return of approximately 2,320% over the past year. Furthermore, it has exhibited an extraordinary return of 11,400% over the past decade. An investment of Rs 1 Lakh has grown to over Rs 1.15 crore in the past 10 years.
