35 smallcaps Jhunjhunwala, Kedia, Porinju bet on spike up to 322%
Khanna’s pick Shreyans Industries jumped 173% between September 2016 and this September.
Some do their own research while others follow market gurus like Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, Porinju Veliyath, Anil Kumar Goel and Vijay Kedia to spot potential bets.
Data shows nearly 100 stocks are among favourites of superstar investors and they have surged over 300 per cent over the past 12 months.
Emkay Global Financial Services, a favourite of Dolly Khanna and Porinju Veliyath, has advanced 322 per cent over the past one year to close at Rs 278.90 on September 7, 2017 from Rs 66.05 on September 7, 2016.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2017, Emkay Global reported over five-fold rise in net profit at Rs 8.17 crore against Rs 1.60 crore reported for the corresponding quarter last year.
Some 13 stocks on the list are owned by value investor Anil Kumar Goel, including Uttam Sugar Mills, which soared up to 304 per cent over the past one year. Panama Petro Chem (up 213 per cent), IG Petrochem (up 212 per cent), Vardhman Holdings (up 161 per cent) and Vardhman Special Steel (150 per cent) are among his top picks.
Anil Kumar Goel, who hails from Amritsar, shifted to Chennai in the mid-60s at the behest of his grandfather, who wanted a family member to take care of his business there.
“Goel never invested in IT companies because he didn’t understand the business,” Turtle Wealth Management said in an earlier report.
