stocks are not in the limelight as they might be recently listed or are not so
popular in their respective industry due to their limited operations.
a company that has the potential to scale its business in a shorter period is
all it takes to be a millionaire. We have compiled a “Complete Checklist” to find
such Multibagger stocks.
1. Business Survival
in business, not in stock, i.e. one should not invest in companies that he
cannot understand. It is very crucial for a business to survive in difficult
times, no matter whatever the event is. An event can be a health crisis, sudden
economic downfall, unfortunate bubble blasts (such as the Dot-com bubble, sub-prime
crisis, etc), economic recessions, any political event (such as US-China Trade
A company doesn’t have to post profits even during difficult times
but the primary concern is the survival of a business. For example, FMCG
companies would be the least hit even during tough times (such as COVID-19
Pandemic), as they are into the consumer segment and their products meet the daily
needs of the consumers.
there were only FMCG companies but today there are a lot of other businesses that
we consume on a day to day basis are food, pharma, chemicals, agriculture, and
many more. Try to find out such companies who will be able to sell products or
services despite any economic issue.
2. Sustainable growth potential
company should be adaptive to changes i.e. they should develop new techniques
and focus on product innovation and optimization. The company should have an achievable
goal. An investor can find their past performance and various branding strategies
used by the company in their recent annual reports (MD&A Section).
3. Management should be visionary
are the pillars of any company. A good and experienced group of people can lead
a company in the best interest of investors. Pick up any company that has faced
financial issues or was dissolved in the past or had a negative market image, all
of these issues were only because of fraudulent and incapable management.

4. Promoters interest in the company
higher stake shows, the promoters are confident about the company’s future and
out the promoters holding in the last 10 years, and find out the trend, if it
is increasing it’s a positive sign and if reducing than it’s a red signal for
investors (One should stay away from such companies because if the promoter
itself is not sure about the company’s future than how come an investor could
have trust in it.)
pledging should be either zero or minimal.
The above rules do not apply to the Professionally Managed Companies, as such
companies have zero or negligent promoter holding. (we will talk about What
are professionally managed companies and What are Promoter Managed companies?

5. Zero Debt Company
is becoming a dirtier word at an individual as well as at the corporate level. A
company should have zero or minimal debt, as it would give them an edge over
others in terms of minimizing their cost and increasing their returns.
a company has debt than look at the trend in the last couple of years, and find out
the answers to the below questions.
- Is debt increasing?

is able to convert their profits into cash?
7. Equity dilution

should avoid equity dilution at all times. To improve the liquidity, equity
dilution is good sometimes, however it should be only when the proportionate
growth is visible.
8. Consistent Dividend
company should be consistent in giving dividends. Why so?
Example, Company X gives a 5% dividend every year, so in this case, the market sets
a benchmark for company X and expects that the company would give more than 5%
or at least a 5% dividend in the upcoming Fiscal Year. And if for any reason the
company is not able to meet these expectations, it is considered a negative
sign by market participants and it is believed that the company is not able to
generate sufficient returns.
9. Price to Earning
price-earnings multiple indicates the stock is comparatively undervalued with
respect to the industry. With the growth in earnings and with every new milestone
achievement, PE gets re-rated and then there is usually a multiplier effect on the stock price.
the company is having its own growing brand then it’s a huge plus point, and
even if they don’t own but are associated with some huge brand name which will indirectly
increase the goodwill of the company. Read
annual reports and news for getting better insights on such brands.

A company doesn’t need to be good only if it has low equity, but low
equity capital companies with strong fundamentals have some sure shot advantage
the equity capital, higher the EPS, higher the valuations.
PS: Find companies having equity capital less than 15 crores.
