Infosys, Hindalco and Coforge among Anand Rathi’s best stock picks at Diwali


Diwali 2021 stock picks: Anand Rathi bought a call on Infosys for a target price of Rs 2,000.

Indian stock indices have given huge returns since the last Diwali and the start of Samvat 2077 i.e. The US Express News New Year which started on November 14 of last year. The Sensex jumped 50% or 20,555 points in the Samvat 2077 and the larger Nifty 50 index climbed 43% or 5,485 points (to the October 26 closing price). The rise came as a result of a rapid economic recovery following the devastating second wave of Covid-19, the rapid pace of vaccinations, government production-related incentive programs for various sectors, and rates of ‘low interest. Meanwhile, investors remain bullish in Indian markets as corporate earnings are expected to remain strong as domestic and foreign investors continue to pump money into the markets, analysts said.

Here are the top Diwali stock picks from brokerage firm Anand Rathi:

We believe Hindalco is sticking to its guided strategy with ongoing deleveraging and global operations getting stronger with each passing period. Valuations are still not stretched given the strong operating performance and ongoing deleveraging on the balance sheet as well as strong opportunities to continue growth investments at a comfortable leverage position, said Anand Rathi.
