Indian stock markets are amid a strong bull run for the last one year. Indian equities witnessed a couple of plunges post demonetisation last year during November and December. But since then, key benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty have returned about 27-28%. Day after day, domestic markets are climbing new milestones. In 2017 itself, Nifty 50 crossed the historic five-digit mark of 10,000. This year, the IPO (initial public offering) market also got a decent response from almost all investor classes. Collectively about Rs 65,000 have been raised so far from initial public offers. On the other hand, there are some shares which have beaten even Sensex and Nifty’s eye-catching returns.
We bring to your attention a multi-bagger small-cap stock which has grown more than 10 times in a span of one year only.

The sum of Rs 10,000 invested in the shares of HEG at a price of Rs 161 a year ago in order to get 62 shares is now valued at Rs 1,01,456.
