End of the lower interest rate era, rising concern over inflation, ongoing geopolitical crisis and heavy outflow by foreign institutional investors (FIIs) have weighed market sentiment during the past nine months. As a result, the benchmark BSE Sensex has tumbled nearly 15 per cent to 52,979.68 in the afternoon trade on June 28 from its all-time high of 62,245.43, scaled on October 19, 2021.
There are expectations that the markets may continue to remain volatile considering the ongoing developments. At the time, market mavens believe that this is the time to accumulate beaten-down stocks. Delhi-based investor and market veteran Ashish Chugh recently told BT: “At present, there may be various other businesses with good potential where stock prices have fallen from the highs and are at attractive valuations – do study such companies.”
Business Today has collated a list of companies which may deliver a return of up to 74 per cent after witnessing up to 64 per cent correction from their 52-week high levels. Have a look.
