These 3 Stocks are the Dark Horses of the Stock Market

The mainstream media mostly ignores them.

Mutual funds and hedge funds can't buy them in bulk.

Stock brokers rarely cover them.

These stocks are the dark horses of the stock market.

They only come in limelight after they have rallied by hundreads of even thousands of percent.

Our head of smallcap research, Richa Agarwal, has a knack for identifying such stocks before they begin their rally.

Over the years, she has spotted such stocks which have gone on to offer triple and even quadruple digit gains for investors. (* Past performance is no guarantee of future results)

Today, when the markets are near all-time high... and some investors are thinking of booking profits... Richa has spotted 3 such stocks which are set for a massive rally.

She will reveal the details of these 3 stocks on 28th January at her free online summit.

Moving on to news from the auto ancillaries sector...

Motherson Sumi Announces Multiple Buyouts as Part of Vision 2025

Motherson Sumi, India's biggest auto-component manufacturer, is pursuing multiple buyout deals, some of which will be made public in the final quarter of the year.

The buyouts are a part of the company's vision of tripling revenues by FY25 to US$ 36 billion from US$ 12 billion under the Vision 2025 plan.

Since 2002, Motherson Sumi Systems (MSSL) has made 24 acquisitions in the automotive and non-automotive segments, with the latest being the business assets of Bombardier's Mexico unit.

The electrical wiring interconnection systems (EWIS) of Bombardier Transportation's Mexico plant is engaged in making rolling stock.

Nearly 90% of MSSL's revenues emerge from outside of India. Half of its revenues came from Germany, France, Spain and the United States. Daimler Group, Audi and Volkswagen are the company's biggest customers, accounting for 35% of the revenues.

In the past, MSSL's acquisitions have been propounded by its clients.

While several governments around the world have stepped in to provide financial assistance to companies hit by Covid-19 and the subsequent lockdowns, many companies continue to be in bad shape.

MSSL is waiting to get clarity on the monetary assistance provided by governments. It remains unclear whether the assistance was in the form of a grant or a loan. The UK government, for example, agreed to pay 80% of salary a month, up to 2,500 pounds for employed staff.

The company has said based on this government support it should be able to carry out at least a few buyouts in the next few months.

We will keep you updated on all the news from this space. Stay tuned.

Speaking of stocks, here's a pattern that if you see, you must sell your position. After all, exits are more important than entries.

In the chart below, we can see the head and shoulder pattern - the stock goes up, makes a high, falls a little bit, goes up to a higher high, does not make a higher low, rallies again, fails to make a new high, and then starts to break down.

This usually happens in a situation where a stock or index has typically been in a bull trend for a while.

According to Apurva Sheth, Senior Research Analyst at Equitymaster, spotting this pattern correctly can help you save money.

If you're interested in knowing how you can use this pattern to trade, you can read about it in one of the recent editions of Profit Hunter: It's When You Sell that Counts
