Indian equities have been majorly rising for the last two months on the back of better-than-expected Q4 earnings with the benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty growing nearly 10%. Amid the broad rally, many mid-cap to small-cap stocks have advanced more than 25%. We take a look at a small-cap share which has risen more than 35% in the span of last two months outperforming the headline indices. According to a domestic brokerage firm, shares of CMI Ltd may give up to 100% return in the bull case scenario from the current market prices.

The stock of CMI Ltd has already surged 37% to 292.7 from a share price level of Rs 213.3 on NSE. Even today also, the stock of CMI Ltd advanced 5.74% to Rs 309.5 in the early morning deals. The research and brokerage firm Edelweiss Broking Ltd has given a base case target price of Rs 463 which implies a potential upside of 58% from the current market price of Rs 292.7. “We recommend ‘tactical buy’ with target price of Rs 463 per share, valuing the stock at P/E multiple of 12x on FY20E basis,” Edelweiss Broking said in a report.

While, on the other hand, Edelweiss Broking has a bull case target price of Rs 579 which suggests an upside of 98% from the current levels. Valuing the stock at industry average P/E multiple of 15x on FY20E basis, bullish target price could be INR 579, Edelweiss Broking said further. However, Edelweiss had also given a bear case target of Rs 309 per equity share.

Today also, another brokerage firm HDFC Securities has given a buy rating with a target price of Rs 361 implying an upside of 23% from the current level.
