Top 3 Stocks to Buy During This Market Correction...

Amid recent correction, stocks are trading at prices cheaper than what investors have paid to own them a few months ago.

The bears are short selling to profit from this down market, but...our Smallcap guru, Richa Agarwal believes now is the time to BUY them.

In fact, her latest research has revealed 3 stocks that have the potential to create India's next wave of 'Crorepatis.'

Just watch this short video right away and know how to grab the details on Richa's top 3 picks today...

Greaves Electric Mobility manufactures electric two-wheelers under the brand name of Ampere Vehicles and electric three-wheeler vehicles under the brands Ele and Teja.

Greaves Electric Mobility has grown from a small base and currently posts annual revenue of more than US$ 100 m.

Over the last few years, the company focused on expanding its product offerings through acquisitions, and now it caters to the electric vehicle ecosystem in India.

Greaves Cotton share price ended 4.5% higher on the BSE today.

If you are interested in EV stocks, have a look at the top EV stocks in India and the EV penny stocks in India.

Speaking of EVs, have a look at the chart below which shows the massive opportunity in the two-wheeler EVs.


Here's what lead Smallcap Analyst at Equitymaster, Richa Agarwal wrote about this in one of the editions of Profit Hunter:

  • In the last five years, two-wheeler sales in India were around 2 crore units per year. Now the sector is cyclical and has been in the downturn for some time. So let's consider a moderate 5% growth for the next 10 years.

    By 2030, we are looking at 2-wheeler sales of 3 crore units. Even if one third of this is EV sales, that's 1 crore electric 2-wheelers per year.

    In the last 2 years, average electric 2-wheeler sales were 1.5 lakh units. From 1.5 lakh to 1 crore, that's a 66x opportunity in 2-wheeler EVs.

    This is an annual growth rate of 52% over next 10 years. It's an almost vertical growth opportunity.

As per Richa, this is like a gold rush. But like in any gold rush, the winners will just be a few.

Moving on to news from the commodity space, commodity prices showed signs of settling down as copper, a metal that has applications across industries and construction activities, saw its sharpest weekly fall since the pandemic-induced jolt to economic activity in March 2020.

The commercial metal slid 3% in Shanghai and 7% for the week.

Food and oil input prices, which have majorly contributed to the inflation basket have also cooled off in the last week.

According to a leading financial news agency, factory activity across the US, UK, Japan, and the eurozone showed signs of an economic slowdown or a recession with US factories reporting a drop in orders for the first time in two years.

A relaxation in global commodity prices has helped global stock market indices escape the bear's grip.

Note that metal stocks have fallen over 50% from their peaks this year on the back of rising commodity prices.

Tata Steel, one of the multibagger stocks of 2021, is down around 55% from its peak.

It remains to be seen what the rest of the year has in store for metal stocks.
