The amount you invest in a company is the "bag" you start with. If it doubles, you have a two bagger, if it triples you have a three bagger, and so on. Of course success or failure depends on how long it takes the bags to multiply. A two bagger over ten years is only a mediocre equity return while it would be a home run if achieved in a year or two.
