Speaking of stock markets, with stocks rising across the board, you must be excited to see that volatility has eased and things are going back to normal. Several Indian stocks have delivered multibagger returns in a span of one month.

But remember that not all are worthy. Many could be trading in uncharted territory and may be overvalued.

If you're new and on the lookout for fundamentally strong stocks, check out the debt free stocks and the ones which pay high dividend.

Also, read about the multibagger penny stocks for 2025 to get started in the world of penny stock investing.

Moving on to news from the energy sector, 16 banks led by the State Bank of India (SBI) have sold more than Rs 80 bn of Suzlon Energy loans to the Rural Electrification Corp (REC) and the state-owned Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA).

This move is done to clean up their books, that has been a drag for nearly a decade and a half.

The loan sale was concluded even as the wind energy company was in the midst of its second bank-led restructuring initiated in 2020.

The REC and IREDA-led refinance would extend the tenure of Suzlon's loans and would also bear a lower interest rate than what it was paying banks.

Suzlon Energy share price is trading down by 4%.

Note that in the past decade, lenders have restructured Suzlon's debt twice. Currently, the market regulator is conducting a long-drawn forensic audit while lenders have agreed to bail the company for the third time.

High debt stocks like Suzlon are always considered risky while debt free companies in India are considered safe because these companies are insulated against interest rate changes.

Suzlon is one such popular stock which has turned into penny stock and never recovered. Have a look at the chart below:


From having a marketcap of Rs 680.7 bn in January 2008, Suzlon's current marketcap stands at Rs 77.2 bn.

Moving on to news from the infra space, Indian Railway Finance Corporation (IRFC) wants to start lending to other infrastructure companies including roads and ports with linkages to railway stations.

The company's MD and chairman said that IRFC has to ensure that their basic strength as a nil non-performing asset (NPA) company is upheld.

At no point of time can we afford to compromise on the low cost and no-NPA features of IRFC.

Our objective clause in the Memorandum of Association clearly mentions that we can lend to any sector with backward and forward linkage with the railways. So, a port with a linkage to a railway head that directly feeds into the Indian Railways network can be given a loan by IRFC.

IRFC share price is currently trading up by 0.2%.

For more details about the company, check out IRFC company fact sheet and quarterly results.
