    NEW DELHI: Ace investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala booked profits in two Tata group companies -- Rallis India and Titan Company -- in which he holds sizeable stakes along with his wife.

    Share prices of both companies have surged significantly from the lows hit in March with improving economic conditions. Both companies have also reported recovery in sales in the last few months.

    December-end shareholding data released by Titan shows Rakesh Jhunjhunwala sold 18 lakh shares of the firm, and now holds 3,75,10,395 shares or 4.23 per cent in the company. Earlier, he had held 4.43 per cent. His wife Rekha Rakesh Jhunjhunwala continues to hold a 1.09 per cent stake in the company.

    The transaction is valued at Rs 268 crore as per the latest share price of Titan. The jewellery maker forms a major chunk of the billionaire investor's wealth.

    Rekha Jhunjhunwala continues to hold a 2.67 per cent stake in the agro-chemical company.

    Both Titan and Rallis India are multibaggers of the last one decade. While the former has surged more than 15 times during this period, the latter has delivered a more than four-fold return since 2010.

    Anyone who tells you to invest for a Long Term, trades short term.
    If you buy gold and sell it after 20 years, your gain at Simple Rate of Interest will be 50%pa but at Compound Rate of Interest, it will be only 12.25% pa. That is the difference between an investor and an ordinary man.
