The domestic share markets have been on a cyclical trend especially in the last two years with many stocks vastly outperforming the benchmarks and several stocks destroying value. In the corresponding period, the key equity indices Sensex and Nifty have touched their respective all-time highs breaking the previous records. The rally in the headline indices is primarily because of sharp uptick in the heavyweight shares such as HDFC Bank, Reliance Industries (RIL), Maruti Suzuki and HUL.
In the beginning of this year only, Nifty 50 index crossed 11,000 mark after breaching the five-digit figure of 10,000 in August 2017 following the macroeconomic reforms such as implementation of nation-wide tax reform GST by Narendra Modi government and economic boosters such as Moody’s sovereign credit rating upgrade, World Bank Ease of Doing Business ranking upgrade and PSU bank recap plan of Rs 2.11 lakh crore.
In the last two years, there were many stocks that have grown more than 500%. We take a look at one such mid-cap share that has gained 727% in just 27 months.
Shares of the Hyderabad-based cement manufacturer Rain Industries have returned more than 700% in the span on 27 months. The stock of Rain Industries has surged 727% to Rs 232.7 from a share price level of Rs 28.15 as on 16 March 2018 on NSE. Following the massive spike in the share prices, the market capitalisation of Rain Industries has moved nearly to Rs 7,835 crore from Rs 950 crore (approx) in the 27 months.
