The majority of shares in India are traded on the Indian stock exchanges at a price of less than Rs 1,000 per share and there are over 5000 companies listed on the Indian stock exchanges that have a share price of less than Rs 500 per share. However, there are a few stocks that trade at a price that is many times thousands of rupees.

However, the share price of a company has nothing to do with the valuation of the company and even a company with a share price of Rs 2,000 may be undervalued compared to its peers and a company with a share price of Rs 100 may be overvalued. Be that as it may, for the small retail investor, it might be a little difficult to get into such stocks that are trading at a very high share price.

Math Behind The Most Expensive Stocks in India

Have you ever wondered how a stock reaches prices like Rs 50,000 per share and above in the first place? If you look at the basics, the price of a single share is derived by dividing the market capitalization of the company by the number of outstanding shares a company wants to issue.

Suppose a company’s total market capitalization is Rs 10,000 and it has 100 shares issued

Share price= Rs 100 per share

But if it decides to issue only 10 shares then.

Share price= Rs 1,000 per share

Neither does Rs 100 per share mean it is undervalued nor does Rs 1,000 per share mean it is overvalued.

Ergo, it is a numbers game.

The number of outstanding shares of MRF is 4.24 million and the market capitalization of the company was Rs 32,637.06 crores as of August 27, 2021.

If you divide the market capitalization by the number of outstanding shares, you get the share price.

Share price = market capitalization/number of outstanding shares.

Now let us look at another company that does not fall into the list of expensive stocks.

TCS or Tata Consultancy Services.

TCS is always in a clinch with Reliance Industries Ltd, (RIL) for the position of highest market capitalization in India.

It is all about how many shares a company issues. If the company issues many shares, it probably wants to keep them affordable for the investors. Many companies split their share count after it reaches a certain level.

MRF did not do that and that’s why the price of a single share is very high. Why a company does this is entirely their business strategy.

This just proves that share price is not a good criterion for buying shares. Look at the company, its financials, management, business strategy, and all other fundamental factors before investing in the company.

For some people, expensive stocks are not an affordable purchase, while others may want to stretch their finances. It all depends on your investor profile and also what the company stands for. So always consider investing after a holistic evaluation of the stock.

So, this was the list of most expensive stocks in India, curated based on the share price performance of these companies over the years. This list does not claim to be exhaustive and is in no way a recommendation. Please do independent research and due diligence before investing.
