List of Companies with the highest share price in India (Updated – July 2021): The majority of shares in India trade at a share price below Rs 1,000 per share on Indian stock exchanges. Moreover, around 3500 companies listed on the Indian stock market have a share price of less than Rs 500 per share. However, there are a few stocks that trade at a price in the multiples of thousands of rupees.
Although, the share price of a company has nothing to do with the companies valuation, and even a company with a share price of Rs 2,000 can be undervalued compared to its peers, and a company with a share price of Rs 100 can be overvalued. Anyways, for the small retail investors, it might be a little difficult to enter those stocks which trade at a very high share price.
In this article, we are going to discuss the most expensive shares in India i.e. the companies with the highest share price in India. Here, we’ll look at 12 of the costliest shares in India based on the current share price at which they are trading in the market.
Note: Please analyze the companies carefully if you want to invest in any of the stocks mentioned in the list here. A high stock price doesn’t guarantee a fundamentally strong company or a good investment. Or vice versa. Now, let’s get started on our list of costliest shares in India.
