How Modi Could Take The Sensex from 40,000 to 100,000

A few days ago the Sensex hit 40,000…for the first time ever.

This was right after the election results revealed that the BJP-led NDA was on course to secure a large majority in the Parliament.

Sensex 40,000 seemed like a distant dream until not too long ago…but we have breached it.

And now, we're confident that over the course of the next few years, the Sensex is headed to 100,000.

Here's how you could profit from the journey…

NOTE – As the Sensex scales new heights and inches towards 100,000…there are 4 stocks we believe will perform exceptionally well, and potentially multiply investors' wealth. Here are the details.
