In stock market investing, patience is one of the most crucial things one has to trump on while selecting the stocks as value creation doesn’t happen in a quick pinch. Indian equity markets have gone through a number of downturns in the last 15 years such, some of the notable ones include the 2008’s global financial crisis, domestic economic activity slowdown (201the 1-2013), Grexit, Chinese meltdown in 2015, Brexit, sell-offs, trade wars, etc. Despite these many repercussions, the benchmark Sensex has returned a little more than 900% to a level above 37,000 from the mark of nearly 3,700 in the same time.

In the corresponding time, a blue-chip stock has moved from to Rs 2,000 from a share price level of about Rs 20. The appreciation in the share price translates into a whopping return of more than 9900% in 15 years.
