Portfolio of Rakesh Jhunjhunwala

Aug 06, 2008 10:16 am

For all those affiliated with the stock market, it is always fascinating to know what the other person is investing into, what are the stocks owned? Call it human nature, but its always interesting to know what the other person does, the ever inquisitive nature of mankind.

So we were also a bit inquisitive and decided to take a look at the holdings of Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, one of the savviest and smart investors on Dalal Street. He is a CA by profession and his name catapulted into fame when Forbes, in 2007, ranked him as the 51st richest man in India. Son of an income tax officer, he started dabbling in stocks while in college. Rather than take a job, he plunged into investing, starting with around Rs.5000 in 1985 when the BSE Sensex was at 150; it is now over around 14,000. His privately owned stock trading firm Rare Enterprises, derives the name from first two initials of his name and wife Rekha's name.

Hence we thought it would be very interesting to know about his holdings and the stocks which he holds a substantial stake in. He is a long term investor and does not trade for short term profit. Take a look at his portfolio and maybe learn a few lessons. These shares are held by Rakesh and his wife Rekha Jhunjhunwala and form a part of his disclosed portfolio. There could be more holdings through companies, trusts, proprietary accounts which are not in the public domain.

23RD ,JUNE India's fortune-hunters believe their new-found love for biofuel will pay off. India's well-known investors who are known for their Midas touch have spotted an opportunity in bio-fuel, betting big on ethanol, bio-mass and even bio-fuel equipment makers in India and other parts of the globe. Billionaires Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, C Sivasankaran, Vinod Khosla, founder of Sun Microsystems, and Nemish Shah, the media-shy joint partner of Enam Financial Services, are investing in bio-fuel makers quietly, expecting that bio-fuel will have a big play in the coming years as the world looks for a viable alternative to the fast depleting oil reserves. Jhunjhunwala, who is known for his ability to spot a multi-bagger at a very early stage, recently invested in Hyderabad-based bio-fuel firm Nandan Biometrics.He is also a 10 per cent stakeholder in Praj Industries, which is a bio-fuel technology provider…

5 dark-horse picks

If you are a conservative investor, using the mutual fund route is the best way to invest in stocks. But if you are game for some excitement, you might want to dabble directly in stocks, especially small-cap stocks. Stocks that are smaller in size, in terms of market capitalisation, carry higher risk. The reasons are — one, lower traded volume increases price volatility, two, information is usually scarce on these companies, three, business risk is higher since many of these companies are dependent on a single product and four, governance risk is also higher in these stocks. That said, small-cap stocks have the capacity to deliver far greater returns when compared to large-cap stocks. Sample this: there were 16 stocks with market cap more than ₹50,000 crore in January 2009. These stocks delivered an average return of 138 per cent in the last eight years but 4 out of every 10 stocks in this group delivered negative returns. On the ot…
