Top 6 Stocks that gained in last 1 year – BSE 30 – Deep Dive


Now let us deep dive into these stocks now.

1) Bharti Airtel – 60% gains in the last 1 year


Bharti Airtel Limited, known with Brand “Airtel”, is an Indian global telecommunications services company based. It operates in 18 countries across South Asia and Africa, and also in the Channel Islands.

Bharti Airtel was trading at Rs 350 a year back and currently it is trading at Rs 559 with a gain of 60%.

During 3rd week of March due to covid, the stock market has taken a huge beating and this stock was trading at Rs 400. It has zoomed now and increased by almost 40% in the last 2 months.

Airtel shares increased to a record high few days back, as its customers upgraded their data and calling plans and the telecom operator raised mobile tariffs, helping boost average revenue per user. The Airtel average revenue per user (which is a key metric for telecom sector), increased by 25% to Rs 154. Few days back it announced saying that it has added 12.5 Mn 4G subscribers in the March Qtr of 2020. Moreover, its ability to add data subscribers should also support market share gains.

Our View: We are seeing covid crisis would not just end in the short term. This would be long term now. Due to this crisis situation, Airtel would continue to add subscribers and average revenue per user would continue to increase in the coming quarters. Investors can benefit from short term to long term perspective.

2) Nestle India – 52% gains in the last 1 year


Nestle India Limited is one the largest players in FMCG segment that has a presence in milk & nutrition, beverages, prepared dishes & cooking aids & chocolate & confectionery segments. The company is engaged in the food business. The food business incorporates product groups, such as milk products and nutrition, beverages, prepared dishes and cooking aids, chocolates and confectionery. Nestle India manufactures products under brand names, such as Nescafe, Maggi, Milkybar, Milo, Kit Kat, Bar-One, Milkmaid and Nestea.

During 3rd week of March due to covid, the stock market has taken a huge beating and this stock was trading at Rs 13,000. It has zoomed by almost 28% in the last 2 months.

Last week it reported a forecast-beating 13.54% year-on-year (YoY) jump in the net profit for the quarter ended March, 2020.

Our view: Nestle performance was beyond street expectations and hence we are seeing an increase in share prices in the last 2 months. This stock is trading at premium valuations now. Nestle India is expected to continue to outperform its peers like HUL and would emerge one of the most superior FMCG stocks in the current turmoil. One can accumulate such blue chip stocks during every stock market fall.

3) Asian Paints – 19% gains in the last 1 year


Asian Paints Limited is an Indian multinational paint company. The company is engaged in the business of manufacturing, selling and distribution of paints, coatings, products related to home decor, bath fittings and providing related services

During 3rd week of March due to covid, the stock market has taken a huge beating and this stock was trading at Rs 1,500. Currently it is trading at the 8% higher in the last 2 months.

Our view: Asian Paints was called as MOAT Stock (unique player) once upon a time. Currently the company is not efficiently utilizing the capital and ROE is in a declining trend in the last couple of years. While its revenues are fluctuating, the profits are on a declining trend (except for Dec-19 Qtr). Many mutual fund schemes have decreased their stake in this stock as they lost patience. Investors should wait and watch on this stock and should not make a fresh entry in such stocks as of now.

4) HUL – 12% gains in the last 1 year


Hindustan Unilever (HUL) Ltd is India`s largest fast moving consumer goods company, with leadership in Home & Personal Care Products and Foods & Beverages.HUL`s brands – like Lifebuoy, Lux, Surf Excel, Rin, Wheel, Fair & Lovely, Pond`s, Sunsilk, Clinic, Pepsodent, Close-up, Lakme, Brooke Bond, Kissan, Knorr-Annapurna, Kwality Wall`s are household names across the country and span many categories – soaps, detergents, personal products, tea, coffee, branded staples, ice cream and culinary products.

During 3rd week of March due to covid, the stock market has taken a huge beating and this stock was trading at Rs 1,838. It has increased by 4% in the last 2 months.

Our view: HUL is losing its shine. Its revenues have fallen in the last 3 quarters. Its profits are in a declining trend in the last few quarters. We are clearly seeing this in the stock price which rose only by 12% in the last 1 years. One should avoid such stocks unless we see traction in the revenues and profits.

5) Sun Pharma – 11% gains in the last 1 year


Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd is a Multi National specialty pharma company. It also makes active pharmaceutical ingredients. In branded markets, their products are prescribed in chronic therapy areas like cardiology, psychiatry, neurology, gastroenterology, Diabetology and respiratory.

During 3rd week of March due to covid, the stock market has taken a huge beating and this stock was trading at Rs 324. It has zoomed by almost 42% in the last 2 months.

Our view: Sun Pharma profits are on a declining trend in the last 3 quarters. It has poor cash flow management (declining cash flow from Operations) in the last 2 years. Since Pharma sector is key during covid-19 crisis, pharma stocks is rising even that has poor performance. Sun Pharma share price may gain in the short term to medium term owning to this.

6) Reliance Industries – 9.7% gains in the last 1 year


Reliance Industries Limited is an Indian multinational conglomerate that owns businesses in energy, petrochemicals, textiles, natural resources, retail, and telecommunications.

During 3rd week of March due to covid, the stock market has taken a huge beating and this stock was trading at Rs 875. It has zoomed by almost 63% in the last 2 months.

Our view: Reliance revenues and profits are fluctuating. In its last quarter results indicate a fall in both revenue and profits. It has come up with rights issue this week for Rs 53,000 Crores and out of this 75% of it would be used to repay debts. Most investors believe this is operators driven stock. One can expect higher than bank FD returns from such stocks in short to medium term. Don’t think this is a multi bagger stock

    Is Kanasai Nerolac better positioned now than Asian paints? Low crude will help is my thought.

    Also my view on Reliance it will get doubled b4 they split Jio from Relind. Also they are expanding their landscape on Retail to a great extent. With help of Jio and deal with FB they can create revolution. But stock price seems manipulated. Fundamentally they will soon become Zero debt organization if Aramcobdeal goes through
