Firstly, they will be perceived as relatively stable in the face of further market weakness, should it play out.
Secondly, they are fundamentally strong businesses with the enduring franchise, large addressable opportunity in their respective sectors and are run by capable management. We think this will help them deliver significant outperformance when broader markets recover.
Here is a list of top 10 stocks which could give 20-30 percent return by Diwali 2019:
