I had a deep interest in stock market and used to invest in thoroughly researched stocks from the beginning of my trading career and found one such gem was Infosys which was undersubscribed and was bailed by Morgan Stanley which picked up 13% of equity at the offer price of Rs. 95 per share. I had also invested in the said stock in IPO and my joy knew no bounds when I found the stock hovering at Rs.145 a share, almost a 60% premium on the day of listing. However I held the stock and avoided taking the short term gains as those days getting a stock in own name was like winning a Jackpot in the market.
It is interesting to note that since listing on the Bombay Stock Exchange till the year 2000, Infosys’ sales and earnings compounded at more than 70% a year.

However I was reluctant to hold the stock so long and undertook the exit in year 2001 at a phenomenal price and became a real multi millionaire on ground, though on paper was a millionaire from the day 1 of the investment in the said stock as I always believed in the fundamentals of the stock.
