Keep one thing in mind that multibagger stock is no quick gameplay. I would define multibagger stocks as the one who will become 10X in next say 10 to 15 years.
So here are the few things you should check while defining multibagger stocks.
1. Debt free
The company should be debt free. However, you can also pick a company with low-level debt. If a company has higher debt then all its profit will go into repayment of debt, resulting in lesser or negative net returns. You should look at the debt-equity ratio of the company which tells you how strong is the company in terms of debt repayment.
2. Good performance history
The company should be consistent in its performance on net profit and revenue. You can make it out from the quarterly and yearly results. Past performance will give you some confidence that company’s fundamentals are strong enough to continue generating profit in coming years.
3. Future growth
You should check the future business potential of the company. Which industry company is operating and what is the future of that industry. Check product and service offered by the company and check its current demand as well as future needs. This will tell you how a company will perform in future.
You can also check if there is any new product or expansion plan for the company. This will tell you company ‘s financial strength and future prospects. The good example of this is Reliance industry has launched Jio which has changed the market dynamics of Indian telecom. It has captured big market share in its first 6 months offer. The share price of Reliance Industry has gone highest in last 9 years.
4. PE Ratio
The current valuation of stock should not be very high. If the stock has already given high returns and valuation is high I would not consider it as multibagger. EPS (earning per share) of the stock is at the reasonable level.
5. Market leader
The company should be a market leader in whatever field it operates. It should be able to scale itself to large scale. If you check multibagger stocks are from the small-cap segment.
Apply above points while picking up multibagger stocks. Invest in the stocks which are market leader and generates value to investors.
