100 baggers book summary

I have started my investment journey in 2017 bull run.I have paid my tution fees by learning from my initial losses. Then i started reading books .I am deeply inspired by two books

1…One up on wall street by peter lynch

2…100 baggers by Cristopher mayer

=One up on wall strret is very popular while 100 baggers is still less known to people.

=This book inspires us to invest for very long duration like 20 to 25 yrs and find out 100 baggers( repeat 100 baggers Not 10-20 baggers).

=In today’s era,where young people hardly stay invested for 6 months ,20-25 yrs investment in same stock is next to impossible for most of people.


=At last, i am also very new to market with 4 yrs experience and trying to follow these principles.

100 baggers book summary


Hey @Pragnesh
May you kindly share which of your PF stocks were selected keeping in mind the “Essential Principles” of a 100 bagger (from the book)?


I had selected all stocks for long term with some narrow or wide moat as per my understanding.

I had few stocks like jenburkt pharma ,auro lab and grauer which dont have any moat. I had done some scruttlebutt in auro lab and jenburkt pharma .I had also used some products of jenburkt pharma.

I will keep these 3 stocks for atleast 5 yrs from date of purchase and then will take decision.

Adding pitti engineerimg

Portfolio may be down of around 30% from the peak. Not calculated

Addind pitti eng.
Not sold single share


would like to know the reasoning behind

suven over laurus
kei over polycab
kpr over praj

Suven pharma has highest operating margin in industry with main focus on new molecules.What i like about company is “Strong research and execution capability”

While laurus is mainly concentrated on anti viral and onco with not much diversification

…Kei has huge growth in last few yrs .Its retail business is growing over EPC and institutional business.This will bring down working capital

…While polycab has high growth but it is trading at higher PE ratio

=I will give 10 out of 10 to corporate governence for kpr mill.When i invested in kpr,i was in search of out of favour industry and textile was perfact industry at that time.
=There is no question of comparision with praj as 90% revenue of kpr is from textile and only 10% from ethanol.

1=I generally prefer companies with PE less than 25-30, preferrably <20 at the time of buy

2=I dont sell when PE ratio increases during investment journey.I will generally hold for 10 or more yrs(lets see ,i had started in 2017 and since 2017 i had not sold most stocks)
(Curtsey of book 100 baggers by crystopher mayer)

3=I prefer companies with mcap<5000


Hi @Pragnesh, rational for investing in Pitti eng. This company seems to has pledged 20%. Has the management given any explanation on this. Thanks

=Railway n metro@30%
=power generation@15%
=Special purpose motor@11%


B…Anup eng

…They make
heat excjanger@70%
Press valve@22%
