Best Indian Companies for investment

Which company has the potential to become next Infosys or Airtel or Suzlon or Praj? Visionary investors always search to find emerging giants which have the potential to yield more than 500% returns in 3-4 years. Many emerging companies generally get funding from PE players but still some companies opt for IPO route. If you pick the right stock, it will change your life forever. High risk and high return is the basic character of an emerging and niche Company.

Characteristics of emerging stocks:

1. These stocks have the potential to give exceptional returns if investors buy and remain invested in them for 4-5 years.

2. Risk is generally high as most of these sectors are in untested zone and converting ideas into viable businesses is a great challenge for enterpreneurs.

3. Some companies start with a good idea but failed to execute them in time. Don't expect that every company will become another Infosys or Suzlon.

4. You should not look at balance sheets when you invest in them. That's why value investors generally do not buy emerging companies. Learn to see bigger picture before investing in them.

5. These stocks are generally bought by foreign investors and highly educated investors which are now staying away from Indian stock markets. These stocks generally fall heavily in bear markets and will command very high valuations in bull markets.

6. These stocks are meant for patient investors who have vision and ability to stay invested for long term.
