When it gives, the Indian stock market does so with both hands.

Data shows over 150 companies in the Nifty500 index more than doubled investor wealth in last three years January 2015. Among them, three – Minda Industries, Indiabulls Ventures and Rain Industries – swelled investor wealth up to 1,000 per cent, which means an investment of just Rs 10,000 made on January 2, 2015 would have become over Rs 1 lakh on January 3, 2018.

Auto component maker Minda Industries topped the chart with a gain of 1,010 per cent, as the stock jumped to Rs 1,257 as of January 3, 2018 from Rs 113 on January 2, 2015. NSE benchmark Nifty advanced 24 per cent to 10,443 from 8,395 during the same period.

Minda has plans to participate in the electric vehicles space. “We will play a very active role in the electric vehicle and electric vehicle components segments when the time comes. Already, we have separate teams working on various components within the organisation. They are in touch with various OEMs for collaboration. As and when the time comes for production and joint development, we will be fully geared to grab those opportunities,” Sudhir Jain, Group CFO, Minda Industries, told ETNow in an earlier chat.

Brokerage IIFL says Minda Industries, through its new products, is expected to see significant increase in content per vehicle supplied.

“We see a strong 20 per cent revenue CAGR during FY17-20E. During the same period, OPM can expand by 20 basis points, translating into a PAT CAGR of 36 per cent. In spite of capex and investments to acquire group holdings, the debt-to-equity (D/E) ratio of the company is likely to be comfortable. RoE and RoCE would be more than 25 per cent in the near term,” the brokerage said.
