Here's how much money you'd have if you invested like Rakesh Jhunjhunwala

Here’s how Rakesh Jhunjhunwala *doubled* his money in one year with these nine stocks


Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, the single largest individual investor on Dalal Street, has had a particularly good 2017. Not only did he make a killing in Q4 (July, August and September) with Titan when he made ₹875 crore in a single day, the calendar year is also ending on a high note for him because of eight other high-performing stocks. Known as the Warren Buffet of India, Jhunjhunwala has chosen to invest in not one, not two but nine stocks which have given him a minimum 100 per cent return. What this essentially means is that in 2017, the ace investor had bet his money on shares that have doubled his money at the very least. Obviously, you could do with picking up some smooth stock market moves from the man himself. Check out these nine high-performing stocks that Rakesh Jhunjhunwala invested in along with an estimate of how much you would have made if you had invested ₹1 lakh in each of them:
