Are you looking for reliable stocks that are giving better returns than the stock market average? Perhaps we could help you narrow down your search.
It is important to judge a stock or a portfolio not just by the absolute returns but also by the degree to which it gives you returns higher than the average returns in the market or the sector. Therefore, in order to make better stock market investment decisions, you must compare it to both the indices based on market capitalisation as well as other companies in the sector.
The following are some stocks that have given massive returns compared to their benchmarks in recent times:
1. Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd
The M&M stock has seen one of the largest increases in the stock price in the auto sector. It has grown by 56.7% in the last year which is much higher than the increase in the stock prices of other auto companies such as Tata Motors Ltd (21.8%) and Maruti Suzuki India Ltd (16.8%). In fact, the BSE auto index has seen an increase of around 23% in the past year.
It is a large cap stock with a market cap of over ₹1.5 lakh cr. For context, both the Nifty 100 and Nifty 50 have seen dips in the past year ( 2.73% and 3.45% respectively). Its share price growth can be attributed to its recent and upcoming launches of new vehicles.
2. Bharat Electronics Ltd.
BEL has shown a return of 57.76% in the last year – starting from ₹66.43, reaching a high of ₹112.85 in August 2022 and currently hovering at around ₹104.8. BEL is a large cap firm with a market capitalisation of ₹74,596 cr.
