Likewise, the broader NSE Nifty advanced also hit its new high of 15,835.
Analysts believe that the ongoing bull run will continue and investors should lap up quality stocks in case of any correction. Data available with Ace Equity showed that stocks like Cipla, Wipro, Titan Company, SRF, Polycab India, Pidilite Industries, Bajaj Finance, Marico, Ambuja Cements, Astral, Gujarat Gas, Garware Technical Fibres, Jubilant FoodsWorks, FirstSource Solutions, ICICI Prudential Life Insurance and Balrampur Chini are hovering at their record high levels.
Shares of these companies have advanced between 60%-550% since the lows of March 2020. Market watchers are bullish on some of the stocks in the list. For instance, ICICI Securities has a ‘Buy’ call on Polycab India with a target price of Rs 2,025. Likewise, Sharekhan is positive on Balrampur Chini with a target price of Rs 425.
“Balrampur Chini Mills one of the key beneficiaries of reducing cyclicality in the sugar industry. A higher contribution from the distillery division will help margins and PAT (profit after tax) clock a CAGR of 19% over FY2021-24,” Sharekhan said.
Sustained liquidity in the market has been keeping the momentum upbeat on Dalal Street. The low deposit rates are one of the major reasons why regular inflows keep coming into the market. There is no reason to believe that deposit rates will go up in the near term, and hence stock markets will continue to receive liquidity support in the meantime. Considering the present condition, YES Securities believes that Sensex can hit 60,000-mark by December.
