About this Face2Face:
In this video of the face2face series, we have with us Mr. Vivek Bajaj, co-founder, StockEdge, Elearnmarkets, in conversation with Mr. Rakesh Laroia, someone with an incredible amount of knowledge and experience of the stock markets. He is someone who started investing at a very early age and was also able to survive and do well through the Sub-Prime crisis of 2008. Mr. Rakesh is not only regarded as a multibagger specialist but also a turn-around story identifier by his peers.
This video will focus on ways to not only create short term profits from the stock markets but also on long term wealth creation. You will hear Mr. Bajaj speak about how people forgo wealth creation and chase short term gains in the markets today. But with the help of Mr. Loria, he will be able to discuss how one can identify potential multibagger stocks to generate wealth.
The video will start with Mr. Rakesh Loria giving an introduction of himself and how he started his journey of investing in the financial markets. He will also discuss one of his first multibagger stocks, Unitech which he picked at Rs.400 and sold at almost 14000 levels. He will also talk about his learnings from Raghu Ram Rajan during his time as an MBA student in Chicago, USA.
Then the speakers will get into a discussion about Fundamental Analysis and how anyone can identify fundamentally sound companies for investments. They will discuss the importance of understanding the management and its efficiency and capabilities. Mr. Rakesh will emphasise on the importance of attending AGMs and Con-Calls to understand more about the companies. He will also talk about studying and analysing the Annual Reports extensively.
In the next part of the video, the speakers will discuss the method to pick what are called Multibagger stocks. These are stocks which hold the potential to rise many fold in a few years and make investors a tremendous amount of money. The speaker will give real life examples and case studies of what have been such stocks in the past.
Finally towards the end of the video, the speakers will discuss the PE ratio and whether it is an important ratio for retail investors to follow. The speaker will also give tips on how one can strategise their exit in order to maximise their profits and minimise losses.
