Investors are always on a quest to find the next big thing in the markets.

If you aren’t thinking about owning a stock for ten years, don’t even think about owning it for ten minutes.

He strongly believes that one should hold their investments for a longer period of time to witness the taste of compounding.

How to identify multi-bagger stocks

As a retail investor, if you are looking for multi-bagger stocks in India, you should weigh in all the pros and cons before investing in any company.

The goal of an investor should be to look for a good investment and not necessarily a multibagger. This is because you need to have a thorough process for investing that meets all your criteria.

If you go in with the assumption that every stock you invest into will be a multibagger, you will be disappointed. It won't work out that way.

The future is uncertain. Your rationale for buying a stock may change and you will have to watch out for that.

The idea should be to buy a good quality stock of a company, look out for a business that has a solid foundation, sound growth strategy, attractive valuations, ethical business practices, and exceptional management team.

As long as these factors are in place, you should remain invested for the long haul rather than being agitated by short term market volatility and price fluctuations.

Happy Investing!
