The 8 stocks that surged over 100% in last 5 years

Auto, FMCG, Pharma and IT stocks among top gainers, while Tata Steel, Bhel, Tata Power, RIL and NTPC get dumped

While the benchmark indices have scaled up to a new high, investors have mostly preferred to stay with the defensive pack — pharmaceuticals, fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) and information technology (IT) stocks. Automobile stocks, too, have found flavour with investors.

Of the eight stocks that saw a spectacular gain of over 100 per cent in the past five years, three belong to the automobile pack, two each are from the pharmaceutical and FMCG space and a lone ranger from the IT pack.

Sun Pharma tops the list with a gain of 444 per cent, followed by TCS (up 323 per cent), Hero MotoCorp (up 204 per cent), ITC (up 185 per cent), HUL (up 159 per cent), Tata Motors (up 155 per cent) and M&M (up 122 per cent).

BHEL (down 71 per cent), Tata Steel (down 62 per cent), Jindal Steel & Power (down 53 per cent), Tata Power (down 47 per cent) and NTPC (down 45 per cent) were some of the losers in this period.

Reliance Industries (down 40.5 per cent), Hindalco (down 39.3 per cent) and Larsen & Toubro (down 32 per cent) were other major losers during the period.

Deven Choksey, managing director and CEO of K R Choksey Shares and Securities, says: “Overall, the market momentum is likely to remain intact in the next month though there can be corrections; support buying is likely to kick-in. Nifty is likely to remain in the range of 5,900 to 6,400. Sesa Sterlite, Tata Motors and Reliance Industries seem investment worthy.”
