Amitabh Bachchan Holding FCL

Of course, Amitabh might have invested smaller amounts at different times and we are not reported those numbers. If we assume this is the full record of his investment: He invested the first set of shares at Rs. 88, which have gone through a bonus (1:1) and then a split (1:5) – meaning each share bought then are equal to 10 shares now. On a first in, first out basis, the purchase price of the stock he’s sold works out to Rs. 9 or so, and the sale at 27 books him a 200% profit.

The amount might be minuscule to a person like Amitabh, but hey, we’ve found he’s a smart stock-investor as well!
