Here's an urgent profit opportunity from us that no mainstream media is revealing...

The #1 Stock for 2021.

...An innovative stock with the industry giants chasing it for its technology to touch millions and millions of people every day.

It serves several clients across the globe, but what got me is this...

The stock is leaving all its competitors behind despite the COVID crash, and now the price has already started to move.

There's actually one more reason why this stock could take off and make its early investors rich.

It's revealed here in this note with transparency.

On the sectoral front, gains are largely seen in the healthcare sector and capital goods sector.

Metal stocks, on the other hand, are witnessing selling pressure.

The rupee is trading at 74.87 against the US$.

Gold prices are trading up by 0.5% at Rs 55,050 per 10 grams.

Speaking of the current stock market scenario, in her latest video, Richa Agarwal, lead smallcap analyst at Equitymaster, talks about a zero loss strategy that maximizes returns in volatile stock markets.

Tune in to find out more:

Also, a few months back, Richa wrote to you about an urgent opportunity in 5 smallcaps to be precise.

Her efforts have paid off well. Every single smallcap in the list has offered gains, beating the benchmark indices by a handsome margin as can be seen in the chart below.

But even if the gains had not come, Richa's conviction in these 'Essential stocks' would not have been any less. That's because these are coffee can stocks.

Some of these stocks are still in the buying range...and offer strong upside in the long term. Hidden Treasure subscribers can read the report here (requires subscription).

UNLOCKED: Up to 3x More Gains During the Corona Crisis...

Moving on, shares of defence equipment manufacturers and suppliers rallied over 10% on the BSE after the Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced on Sunday a phased, year-wise embargo on the import of 101 items of defence equipment, invoking the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Atmanirbhar Bharat (Self-Reliant India) initiative.

A day after Defence Minister Rajnath Singh announced that the Ministry of Defence has jotted down 101 items to be placed under an embargo, investors were seen pumping money into domestic defence manufacturers.

BEML shares were up over 5%, Bharat Electronics (BEL) shares gained more than 13%, while Bharat Forge surged 6% among other companies that are directly or indirectly related to the defence industry.

Shares of Astra Microwave and Hindustan Aeronautics surged over 8%.

The move of the Defence Ministry is aimed at promoting the Atmanirbhar Bharat slogan. Although this comes as a major boost for local manufacturers, analysts claim that hurdles could still hinder the plan to manufacture locally.

The Defence Ministry said that almost 260 schemes of such items were contracted by the Tri-Services at an approximate cost of Rs 3.5 lakh crore between April 2015 and August 2020. It expects almost Rs 4 lakh crore worth contracts will flow towards the domestic industry in the next five to seven years.

The list includes artillery guns, short range missiles, radar systems, light machine guns, and even light combat helicopters, among other things.

Last week, the Ministry of Defence came out with the draft Defence Production & Export Promotion Policy (DPEPP) 2020 to provide thrust to India's defence production capabilities and promote exports.

This was in line with India's ambition to become self-reliant "Atmanirbhar Bharat". Focus is directed towards achieving the twin objectives of self-reliance and exports through active participation of public and private sectors.
