How Assembly election results 2018 made Rakesh Jhunjhunwala richer than ever before! 16 stocks shine for ace investor; do you own any?
A majority of stocks held by him were powered by huge buying sentiments today even during the time benchmark indices crashed on opening bell.
Assembly election results 2018 was a roller coaster ride in today's trading session that was definitely not for the faint-hearted. Tuesday, which was widely believed would turn out as a black day on Dalal Street, surprisingly turned out to be very fruitful. The investors ended up richer than before even as most were bracing for a doomsday! In the midst of Assembly Elections 2018 held in five states, Sensex and Nifty ignored the fear of BJP not bagging a majority in three top states namely Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh after the recently concluded assembly elections. The counting is happening today and the trends have put Congress ahead in all three states. However, in Telangana and Mizoram, the vote count was also being done for these 2 states too, but both the BJP and Congress lost badly.
After a very volatile day of trading, the benchmark Sensex finished at 35,150.01 points, soaring by 190.29 points or 0.54%%, whereas Nifty 50 rose to 10,549.15 points, rising by 60.70 points or 0.58%. So, even as the investor community at large was rejoicing at a tremendously gainful day, ace investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala was the one who made massive gains from his investments. A majority of stocks held by him were powered by huge buying sentiments today even during the time benchmark indices crashed on opening bell. Yes, it has made him richer than ever before.
