First Investment

Do you remember your first investment?

Hello everyone,

I've been in the stock market the past 12 years, as an investor and a franchise owner.

As they say people do not forget their first love, I mean investment...which was SBI back in 2001 purchased at Rs 180 something and sold in 1 month for a profit of Rs 1000

What about you? Do you remember your first investment?

My first investment is in 1983. Hindustan Reprographis Ltd's IPO. The company was afterwards merged with HCL, then to HCL-HP Ltd, then bifurcated into HCL Auto, etc.,

But my first sale is Alwyn Nissan (sometime in 1983). I was alloted 100 shares in IPO at Rs.10/-. Sold for at about Rs.15/-. with the profit of Rs.500/- bought a VIP suitcase for Rs.450/-, which is still withme.
