Top Performing Penny Stocks of 2021

Aug 28, 2021

The category of penny stocks is among the most popular which retail investors prefer for investment.


It's because they trade at lower prices and investors believe they can buy a huge chunk of shares.

One other factor supporting them is low liquidity. They have less tradable shares at the bourses when compared with other category stocks.

And also, since penny stocks offer high returns in a short span of time, investors with high risk profile opt for them.

In the past couple of months, there were several penny stocks which went on to deliver multi-fold returns in a short span of time.

Here are six penny stocks which have turned into a 10 bagger, i.e., which have given over 1,000 returns since the start of 2021.

#1 Adinath Textiles (1,952%)

Adinath Textiles share price has delivered 1,952% returns since the start of this year.

This microcap company's share stood at Rs 1.71 on 1 January 2021. Today, it trades at Rs 35.09.

The stock rose to its all-time high of Rs 35.09 on the BSE yesterday.

For the year ended March 2021, Adinath Textiles has reported a 557.1% rise in bottomline to Rs 3.2 m.

What's interesting is the company has recorded zero sales in last five quarters.

Its profit in the latest June 2021 quarter stood at Rs 2.3 m, a rise of 360% against Rs 0.5 m in the same period last year.

But how is this company earning profits without any revenues? Well, it has been able to log profit on the back of other income which stood at Rs 5.4 m.

Adinath Textiles is a textiles-focused company with 4,800 spindles installed. The company has invested in cutting-edge machinery from (SAVIO) Italy and NSC (France).

How should one go about investing in penny stocks?

Penny stocks are inherently riskier than blue-chip or mid cap stocks.

On the brighter side, they present a huge growth potential. It's not unusual for a good penny stock to turn a multibagger in a matter of months. But on the flipside, there is a high risk attached.

Not all penny stocks tend to be outperformers. That is the reason penny stocks are not recommended to those having a low risk profile.

The corpus that one sets aside for penny stocks should not be more than 5%-7% of the total money allocated towards equities.

Also, you need a very strong framework to separate the men from the boys in the penny stock universe. A framework that not only enables you to zero in on the right penny stock at the right price but also helps you avoid those big losers.

Back in July 2020, Co-head of Research at Equitymaster, Rahul Shah shared a very effective technique that zeroes in on the right penny stocks.
