Best Multibagger Stocks to Buy Now in India (2023)

In this post we discuss what multibagger stocks are and how you can identify them to create wealth.

What are multibagger stocks?

Wikipedia describes a multibagger stock as an equity stock which gives a return of more than 100%.

This term was coined by legendary American fund manager Peter Lynch in his 1988 book One Up on Wall Street.

Lynch was a baseball fan and he borrowed the idea of a multibagger from baseball where ‘bags’ or ‘bases’ that a runner reaches are the measure of the success of a play.

For example, a ten bagger is a stock which gives returns equal to 10 times the investment, while a twenty bagger stock gives a return of 20 times. MRF for example, gave 1651% returns between June 2001 and April 2018 – it can be referred as a 17-bagger stock.

Multibagger stock Ajanta Pharma & our experience

Ajanta Pharma has been one of the most successful multibaggers of the past decade generating nearly 50x returns.

In 2012 when I first stumbled across Ajanta Pharma, I was drawn to it purely by its numbers. It had excellent financials, but I had no clue on what it did. Looking up in the Internet revealed it’s a pharmaceutical company (yes, you can tell that by the name) that produces a herbal preparation for kids named “Pinkoo Gripe Water” and sells anti-malarial drugs in Africa. Didn’t ring any bells, but after hesitating for few days I bought some shares of the company in September 2012. Subsequently, I added some more over the next two months (probably after bit more reading).

Between September 2012 – when I bought my first share of Ajanta Pharma, and May 2017 – when I sold my last bit– the stock had went up by an astonishing 1361%.

Characteristics of top multibagger shares

Multibagger shares usually have the following traits:
  • Strong underlying business, with clean financials

  • Strong cash flows, which limited borrowings and short receivables cycle

  • High earnings growth rate, as stock prices merely follow the earnings trajectory

  • High profitability, due to some unique competitive advantage which is difficult to replicate

  • Scalable business model to support continuous growth

  • Small market capitalization, as large size can be an obstacle to growth

The Bajaj Finance story

Bajaj Finance started as Bajaj Auto Finance in 1988, primarily as a financing arm of the group’s auto business.

Today it stands out as one of the largest and fastest growing deposit taking NBFC in India with a diversified portfolio of financing businesses covering Retail, SME Rural & Commercial.

Since its IPO listing in FY95, the stock has multiplied by an astounding 124,450%. A casual 1 lakh rupees invested in the IPO is now worth around 1200 crores! (Feel free to double check the number of zeros when you have time 😊)

The Astral story & our experience

We had been invested in 4 of these 5 100-baggers mentioned before, at one point or another. Yet, like many investors, whenever we look at these stocks today, we feel the pain of missing out.

Astral Limited is a prime example. The company is primarily engaged in manufacturing of plumbing & drainage systems, fittings and adhesive solutions. Roughly 77% of its business comes from Pipes & Fittings, while Adhesives accounts for the rest.

We had identified Atral almost a decade back. It used to be known as Astral Poly Technik then. Within one year the stock went up by approximately 5 times!

Schooled in the principles of traditional value investing, we exited the stock considering it to be over-valued, waiting for a suitable opportunity to re-enter after correction! As you can imagine, it has been a rather long and frustrating wait 😊
