Classic example of How investment is better than consumption !
How many people are riding ROYAL ENFIELD BIKE ? Or wish to ride it ? Look at the company’s growth
Eicher Motors (Makers of Royal Enfield).
Share Price on September 2001 = Rs. 17.50
Price of Royal Enfield Bike in 2001 was Rs. 55000/-
If any one would have bought the shares of Eicher Motors instead of a bike than he would have got 3143 shares ((Rs. 55000/ Rs 17.50 (share Price) = 3143 Shares))
Eicher Motor’s Share Price as on 4th Aug 2015 is Rs. 20,158, Total Value as 3143 x 20,158= 6.33 crore
55000/- is worth 6.33 Crore in 13 Years.
Now he could have bought a Rolls Royce !!!
