Why investment is better than consumption?
Look at the growth of Eicher Motors (Makers of Royal Enfield).
Share Price on September 2001 = ₹17.50
Price of Royal Enfield bike in 2001 = ₹55000/-
If any one would have bought the shares of Eicher Motors instead of a bike then he would have got 3143 shares ((₹55000/ ₹17.50 (share Price) = 3143 Shares))
Eicher Motor’s Share Price as on 4th Aug 2015 was ₹20,158.
Total Value as 3143 x 20,158= 6.33 crore.
₹55000/- is worth ₹6.33Crore in 13 Years.
Now he could have bought a Rolls Royce.
