Indian equity markets have grown relatively well in the last one-year term as compared to the regional Asian markets with the benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty returning 13 to 15% in the same period. In the meantime, the IT sector indicator Nifty IT had risen about 26% with stocks such as Mindtree, KPIT and Infibeam Incorporation advancing 70 to 90%. Amid the sharp surge in few small-cap and mid-cap shares as compared to the industry heavyweights such as Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys, Wipro, Tech Mahindra and HCL Technologies, we take a look at a small-cap IT stock that has tripled investor money in last one year.
