Caplin Point Laboratories multibagger was recommended in November 2019 by Futurecaps after a strenuous research, however majority of times we end up surprising ourselves.
Multibaggers are stocks that give returns that are several times their current market price (CMP).
These are essentially stocks which have strong fundamentals but are undervalued by the market thus presenting as a great investment asset.
Multibagger stock companies have a strong corporate governance & potential of exponentially scaling the business.
At the time of our recommendation Caplin Point Stock was trading at Rs.314 post which many experts went against the recommendation due to its correction in the next 2 months. It was re-recommended at Rs. 220 levels since the EPS was growting & Debt was in favor of the company.
However, we stood by our experience & talented Market Research team which eventually paid off by giving an astonishing Return On Investment (ROI) of 200% from the re-recommendation.
