Usually apolitical Rakesh Jhunjhunwala tells investor to 'go to Pakistan'

Investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, who has a significant portfolio in public equities, grew angry during a Q&A session at the Hindu World Economic Forum and suggested that a British investor "invest in Pakistan" if he was so concerned about India. Jhunjhunwala made the remark after questions from the investor, who is a former head of the London Chamber of Commerce, as well as co-panelists about rising unemployment in India. See the video.

Unemployment has risen to a 45 year high in 2018, according to official data, which the government has not made public. The British investor in the audience asked questions around unemployment in India and steps the government has failed to take, and Jhunjhunwala responded at first that if it was so bad, it shouldn't be this hard to find a car driver.

Co-panelist Subhash Thakrar then pointed out that Jhunjhunwala lived in Mumbai, and said, "look elsewhere", the problems were significant outside India's financial capital.

Jhunjhunwala then became visibly angry, saying, "Let's agree to disagree"..."We have enough money, Investors shouldn't come if you don't want to (invest in India)...go to Pakistan". The conversation became heated as Jhunjhunwala repeatedly said, "please let me complete" in response to interruptions. The government has claimed that the joblessness data does not capture self-employed businesses and people hired in the Swiggy/Uber/Ola gig economy.

Taking a hit: Rakesh Jhunjhunwala's net worth set to fall this quarter

Investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, often called the Big Bull among stock market investors for his canny picks, has not had much insulation this time round as the stock market bleeds. Among Jhunjhunwala's top ten portfolio stocks in terms of holding size, only Rallis India has remained in the green, while all other stocks have seen sharp declines especially NCC which is down by over 40% in share price. 

What happened? Jhunjhunwala's usual cushion, Titan which constitutes a big chunk of his portfolio, accounting for more than half of his total public portfolio, revised its guidance in the June quarter, driving share prices down for the company. For the first quarter in many, the Titan share price began to lose altitude. Lupin, Escorts, Federal Bank have also disappointed with large selloffs happening in these stocks over the past quarter. 

Has there been any portfolio stock that has jumped by double digits in the past quarter period? There is one - water management company Ion Exchange, which has risen by more than 30% and has so far, stayed somewhat resilient to stock market havoc.
