There are a plethora of stocks that have created wealth over a longer period of time. Take the case of Infosys, Wipro, Hero Honda or even Eicher Motors. They have created substantial wealth over the last 20-25 years. These are the better known cases. There are also lesser known cases. Indo Count Industries (ICIL) has moved from Rs.6/share in 2009 to Rs.1000/share in 2016. That is a phenomenal wealth creation to the tune of over 150 times. Look at TTK Prestige. The stock was quoting at Rs.120 in 2008 and appreciated all the way to over Rs.7000 over a period of 7 years. The company has appreciated nearly 60 times. These are just a handful of examples of wealth creation through stock markets.

All the above instances are cases of wealth created in the secondary markets. Did you know that you can also create wealth through IPOs? Here is how. Many Indian companies have been able to create tremendous wealth due to a listing. But for the stock market listing, these stocks would never have managed to appreciate to that extent. Take the case of Maruti which came out with an IPO in 2002 at a price of Rs.125. Over the next 13 years, the stock appreciated nearly 40 times. This would have been impossible without the power of stock markets. Also look at Bharti Airtel. It listed at Rs.30 went down to Rs.18 in 2002. From there it rallied to well above Rs.1000; an appreciation of nearly 50 times. This kind of wealth creation has helped IPOs discover value through stock markets.
