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.

Speaking of stock markets, the past month was a staggering one.

Benchmark indices saw huge buying interest and went on to touch record-high levels.

BREAKING: Full Details of the #1 Investment of the Decade...

The BSE smallcap index was up 13% in November.

The BSE smallcap index has risen more than 10% in a month only 6 times in the last decade.

Foreign investors (FIIs) invested a net amount of around Rs 650 bn in November. This is the biggest purchase by FIIs by a big margin so far.

Will this rally in Indian share markets continue in December?

We reached out to Brijesh Bhatia, our new team member and Research Analyst of Fast Profits Reports, for his view on the Indian stock markets.

Here's what he had to say...

  • The bulls celebrated Diwali with fireworks and started Samvat 2077 with a roar.

    The Nifty gained 11.4% in the month of November. 80% of the trading days ended on positive note. Midcap and Small Cap indices gained 15.5% and 13% respectively.

    We had 20 trading days in November 2020. 16 of them ended on positive note with 8 straight days of gains from 2nd to 11th November.

    The Nifty has now turned positive for CY2020 and has hit a new all-time high of 13,145.85.

    All sectorial indices ended on a positive note for the month.

    Metals (24.84%), Private Banks (24.25%), PSU Banks (23.63%), and Financial Services (22.84%) gained more than 20%.

    Sectors like IT (4.05%) and Pharma (5.30%) which has outperformed in the first leg of rally, were the underperformers.

    The stocks in Nifty 200 were on fire too. Out of 200 stocks, 179 ended on a positive note which means 90% stocks were in green zone.

    The broad-based buying indicates the momentum is still in the bull's favour. Entering the month of December, can this momentum prolong?

    Well, if we look at the seasonality chart for Nifty 50, December tends out to be the best month for bulls with an average return of 3.43% since 1996.


    Hope we have a Santa rally this Christmas too and end the pandemic year near all-time high levels!
