New Delhi: Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, often known as the big bull of the Indian stock market, has cleared that he’s not interested in buying the shares of Zomato, which made a stellar listing on the bourses on Friday (July 23). On the day of listing, Zomato’s shared surged by nearly 53 per cent against its issue price of Rs 76. 

However, Jhunjhunwala appears not to be tempted by the amazing performance of the food delivery company on Indian bourses. According to a report by Economic Times, Jhunjhunwala said that he is not going to buy Zomato shares. However, the ace investor wished good luck to the food delivery company at a webinar organized by Equirus. 

Zomato shares closed at Rs 125.85 on Friday, an increase of Rs 10.85 or 9.43 per cent from the listing price. At present, the food delivery giant is valued at around Rs 98,731.59 crore. The stock has already offered bumper returns to investors who were allotted the stocks against their bids. 

However, Jhunjhunwala cited his own thesis behind not adding Zomato to his much looked upon portfolio. “What I buy is very important, at what price I buy is the most important. Let Zomato be worth Rs 99,000 crore and Tesla be $600 billion or $6 trillion. I am not going to buy these stocks,” Jhunjhunwala was quoted as saying. 

Further backing his thesis, he pointed out that doesn’t need to visit every party in town and that the “hangover comes only the next day.” However, a few share market experts are suggesting stock investors hold Zomato shares because of the vast opportunities lying in front of the online food aggregator. Also Read: Aadhaar Card Update: Now children can get Baal Aadhaar Card: Here’s how to make it
