Top 10 Best Companies To Invest Blindly ?!

Top 10 BEST Companies To Invest In Blindly!

What’s Meant by Investing Blindly?

One of my friends asked for a list of companies that she could invest in blindly.

Now, if you’ve ever watched my YouTube videos or read the articles I’ve written before, You’d now know that there’s no such thing as investing blindly.

We can’t invest blindly in any company purely based on its past performance. Mostly because we shouldn’t invest in any company at whatever valuation it quotes. right?

But, there are some companies that have given consistent compounded returns year over year and have become so strong that replacing them will be a hell of a lot difficult. 

With that said, I have made a list of 10 companies that can be, I repeat, can be listed as buys at any price if held for the long term. These are well-established large-cap companies. One way or the other, they define where the market is heading, and thus they contribute more to the nation’s growth than others.

Top 10 BEST Companies To Invest In Blindly?!

Top 10 Companies To Own!

Reliance Industries

The conglomerate giant has over 350 subsidiaries and over 150 associate companies under its belt. Reliance is a pure giant! Investing in Reliance Industries is like investing in the entire nation.

Reliance’s business is diversified so well that it is a diversified portfolio in itself. Some of Reliance’s businesses other than its main business are as follows:

Business revenue segments are as follows;

  1. Petrochemical & Oil Refining,
  2. Telecom (Jio), 
  3. Reliance Retail Chain,
  4. Solar and other clean energy spaces, 
  5. Media network, 
  6. Life Sciences & Clinical Research, and many, many more. 

They are literally everywhere! It’s one of my top choices.

Almost 60% of the company’s revenue is derived from the Oil to Chemical Segment (oil refining). Over 10% of revenue is derived from the Jio Telecom Service, and the balance is from the Reliance Retail business, where they sell anything and everything. 

RIL is one of India’s largest private-sector businesses. Its main focus is on petrochemicals and oil refining, but it is also involved in upstream oil and gas exploration and production. RIL’s integrated business strategy and the fact that its Jamnagar site has a Complexity Index of 211, placing it among the world’s most complex facilities, give it a leg up on the competition in the global oil refining and petrochemicals market.

RIL’s retail and digital services, which it offers directly to consumers, are two of the main things that are helping the company grow right now. When it comes to sales, RRL is the leader in the Indian retail industry, while RJIL has become the top telecom service provider in the country. The company is also working to establish itself in the emerging green energy market.

Tata Consultancy Service

Bangalore is the Silicon Capital of Asia, so it’s easy to say that India dominates the IT sector in Asia and probably in the world in the coming days. 

The Indian IT industry is expected to surpass $200 billion in revenue by 2022, reaching over $227 billion. That’s a 15% increase in revenue. The IT sector is still growing in double digits at over 15% every year! 

These statistics show no sign of slowing down, and the entire sector’s leader is TCS. TCS makes a lot of money. It’s literally the cash cow of the Tata Group’s business. Amazing management. With over 14 lakh crore in market cap, the company is showing no signs of slowing down. It’s a worthy investment to own.

Business revenue segments are as follows;

  1. Banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) (39% of revenues)
  2. Retail and consumer businesses (17% of revenues)
  3. Communication, media, and technology (16% of revenues)
  4. Manufacturing (11% of revenues) and 
  5. Other platforms (17% of revenues)

TCS offers services like consulting, service integration, digital transformation, cognitive business operations, and more. Banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI); retail and consumer business; communication, media, and technology; manufacturing; and other companies make up the company’s five core verticals. 

In the last group, we have the life and health sciences, the technological and service sectors, the energy, resource, and utility sectors, and others. TCS has a large presence in North America, South America, continental Europe, the UK, India, Asia Pacific, West Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.

Kotak Mahindra Bank

Kotak Bank is one of my favorite companies to own. It is very well managed. Reasonably priced and has given consistent returns to investors. Kotak manages a conglomerate of financial service providers. 

Commercial vehicle financing, consumer loans, corporate finance, and asset reconstruction are just a few of KMBL’s many lines of business. The bank’s subsidiaries include investment banking services, stock brokerage services, loans based on securities, and auto financing. 

To better serve its customers, KMBL reorganised as a commercial bank in the 2003 fiscal year after previously operating as a non-banking financial corporation (NBFC). On April 1, 2015, ING Vysya Bank and KMBL officially merged and began the merger process.

The bank has a long history of almost four decades in the industry. It has 573 branches all over India and a big presence in South India, especially in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Karnataka.

Kotak has a sheer dominance in the industry mainly because of its varied presence, such as via its subsidiaries;

  1. Kotak Mahindra Prime – a passenger vehicle finance company; 
  2. Kotak Securities – one of the largest broking houses in India; 
  3. Kotak Capital – a full-service investment banking & advisory; 
  4. Kotak Life Insurance, General Insurance, AMC, etc. 

Put together, over 13 major subsidiaries are included.

Hindustan Unilever 

FMCG is the 4th largest sector in India, with an estimated market of over 1 trillion US dollars. Obviously, we have 1.4 billion mouths to feed. We consume a lot of consumer goods. The entire sector is growing by double digits each year. We can expect the sector to grow at least 10% each year for the next 3 years.

HUL is the largest fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) firm in India, and it sells everything from soaps and detergents to personal care items and food and drinks. The organisation makes use of both wholly owned and contracted factories around the country.

HUL is the market leader in the FMCG sector. FMCG is a very competitive industry with aggressive competition, and the business always demands something more! So, newcomers will struggle to survive, while the market leader, such as HUL, will always flourish. 

HUL is a dominant player in the Beauty & Personal Care Segment, where the company generates over 40% of its revenue. And, almost 30% of revenue is from the Home Care Segment, and the other 30% is from the Foods & Refreshments Segment. 

Over 90% of homes in India use at least one of the company’s branded products, which can be found in more than 80 lakh stores across the country. This shows that the company’s products are very popular.

HUL chose acquisitions as a means of expansion throughout the 1990s. HUL acquired Pond’s India Ltd., a subsidiary of the business, in 1998. 

In 2008, the business also purchased Lakme Ltd’s 50% ownership in Lakme Lever Ltd, together with the Lakme brand, the Lakme plants, and the Lakme employees. Indulekha, a hair oil brand established in Kerala, was purchased by HUL for Rs 330 crore in April 2016. 

The states of Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Maharashtra are all important markets for Indulekha. HUL has acquired companies including Aditya Milk (2018), GSKCH (2020), and VWash (2019) to fill up its product line (2020).

Larsen & Toubro (L&T)

HH Larsen and SK Toubro founded L&T in 1938, and in 1946 it became a public limited company. 

It has a strong market position in many different industries, including infrastructure, power, hydrocarbons, heavy engineering, defense engineering, electrical and automation, IT, IT&TS, metallurgy and material handling, machinery and industrial products, and more, making it one of Asia’s largest vertically integrated EPC conglomerates. 

With its SPVs (L&T PDL and LTMRHL), L&T builds roads, metro rail, electricity, and transmission lines.

The Indian government is heavily investing in the infrastructure sector. L&T gets a large chunk of the projects and thus comes with huge revenue and profits. L&T is an MNC that provides EPC services, that is Engineering, Procurement & Construction in sectors such as Infrastructure, Power, Defense, etc. A well-managed company worth looking at.

Business revenue segments are as follows;

Pidilite is a leading adhesives & construction chemicals manufacturer with over 70% of the market share. As said, Pidilite is an allied sector to infrastructure. Pidilite Industries Limited is a leading manufacturer of adhesives and sealants, construction chemicals, craftsmen’s products, DIY products, and polymer emulsions in India. Most of the goods are the result of intensive research and development conducted in-house.

It is for this reason that millions of people in India associate the company’s name, Fevicol, with adhesives, and it is widely considered to be one of the most reliable brands in the nation.

The company has businesses in the United States, Thailand, Dubai, Brazil, Egypt, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Indonesia, Singapore, Ethiopia, and China, among other places. This helps the company make more money and reach more places around the world. 

Asian Paints 

Asian Paints, India’s largest paint producer, was founded in 1942. Decorative paints account for over 85% of total sales, with industrial paints and international sales making up the rest.

  2. Industrial Coatings (2.4% of revenues)
  3. International Operations (11.6% of revenues) and
  4. Home Improvement Business (2.3% of revenues)

It is an allied sector to infrastructure. A well-managed company. The stock has given a 35% CAGR for the past 10 years. Although we may have tight competition, the company is still a worthy investment for the long term.

Tata Motors

Tata Motors Group is among the most prominent automakers in the world. The Tata Motors division offers a broad variety of automobiles, SUVs, trucks, buses, and defense vehicles to customers across the world. The Tata Motors division is part of the prestigious Tata Group, a multinational corporation.

It does business around the world through a network of subsidiaries, affiliated companies, and joint ventures (JVs), such as Jaguar Land Rover in the UK and Tata Daewoo in South Korea. Its headquarters are in India.

The company ventured into the electric vehicle space and actually grasped the market share so well that it is the dominant player for now. 

Business revenue segments are as follows;

  1. Jaguar Land Rover (67% of revenues)
  2. Tata Commercial Vehicles (19% of revenues)
  3. Tata Passenger Vehicles (11% of revenues) and
  4. Vehicle financing (2% of revenues)

HDFC Bank 

HDFC Bank Limited is the biggest private bank in India because it has 11.9% of the market share in advances made by banks. It is backed by HDFC Limited, a major player in the Indian financial sector with interests in banking, insurance (through its subsidiaries HDFC Life Insurance Company Limited and HDFC Ergo General Insurance Company Limited), student loans (through HDFC Credila Financial Services Limited), and asset management (through HDFC Asset Management Company Limited). 

On April 4, 2022, a plan for HDFC Limited and HDFC Bank Limited to merge was made public. After the merger, the size of the bank as a whole will grow by a lot, as long as the necessary customary and regulatory clearances are given. In addition, HDFC Limited’s affiliates will join the bank as wholly-owned subsidiaries or associates.

The retail sector makes up a big part of HDFC Limited’s portfolio, so a rise in the retail sector’s share of total advances is expected. The bank had 7,183 locations as of the end of 2022. 

It also has three foreign operations in Dubai, Bahrain, and Hong Kong. It also has diplomatic offices in the United Arab Emirates and Kenya. It also has an offshore banking department at the International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) in Gift City, Gandhinagar, Gujarat.

We have one of the strongest and fastest-growing economies in the world. But, without proper financial entities, the next leg of growth is impossible. India requires much stronger financial entities. We have a need to provide a range of banking and financial services, including retail banking, wholesale banking, and treasury operations.

Bajaj Finserv 

The Bajaj Group operates a number of different financial service companies, all of which are owned by Bajaj Finserv Ltd. It helps millions of clients by offering financing options, insurance for their new assets, security for their families and their incomes, and options for investing for the future.

The company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries are Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Company Limited, Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance Company Limited, and Bajaj Finance Limited. These companies offer general insurance, life insurance, and loan solutions to clients. 

Business revenue segments are as follows;

  1. Retail Financing (45% of revenues)
  2. General Insurance (28% of revenues)
  3. Life Insurance (25% of revenues)
  4. Investment (2% of revenues)


I’m sure that these top companies were somewhat expected. It’s easy to pick market leaders and buy for the long term. But the mentioned companies are not just market leaders. They have earned their place in the market through sheer efficiency. And, they’ll grow much larger in the coming days.

These are not my suggestions in any way. But a mere introduction to some of the large entities in India that have performed well over the years.

I hope this article helps you build a strong, well-diversified portfolio.
