HUDCO, MRPL, Cochin Shipyard, and Ircon surged over 300 percent each.

The Indian market has rallied almost 30 percent in the current financial year 2023-24 (FY24), hitting multiple peaks on the back of improving macros, declining inflation, solid foreign and domestic investor inflows, and hopes of a rate cut in FY25. Moreover, the market has also factored in a third term for the current incumbent government in the upcoming elections, which further aided the sentiment.

In the Nifty500 index, 120 stocks have given multibagger returns in FY24, which means at least 100 percent gains. Meanwhile, just 51 stocks (10 percent) from the index were in the red in the current financial year.

Outlook

With robust economic growth and market earnings seeing continued growth, most experts believe that the valuations despite being a tad elevated offer strong long-term growth opportunities.

"Currently, India is heading into elections within the next two months, which could set the market's tone in the near term. Despite the potential for short-term volatility, the long-term drivers remain positive. India continues to be one of the few global geographies recording strong GDP growth, with economic indicators suggesting that India's twin deficits and currency are under control. Looking ahead, the market dynamics are expected to be influenced by favorable cyclical factors. Infrastructure, domestic-oriented manufacturing, and utilities are anticipated to reap the benefits. Additionally, the growth opportunities in sectors like power, defense, and transportation, fueled by government policies, are expected to contribute to the market's performance," said brokerage house Motilal Oswal in a note.

Meanwhile, Shauryam Gupta, CEO - Rupeezy, believes that more than elections, the inflation data and the impending rate cuts will have a major impact on the markets. Unfavorable macroeconomic indicators may bring a correction in the market. However, it's worth noting that the market appears to have already factored in the prevailing political climate. Given this context, he expects further upmove in the markets.

Furthermore, with the 2024 general elections knocking at the door and the incumbent Modi government most likely to retain office for the third term, Harshad Patil, Chief Investment Officer, Tata AIA Life Insurance, advises investors to look at a bottom-up stock-picking approach going ahead. He sees opportunities across sectors that offer investment potential for long-term capital appreciation. With robust economic growth and market earnings seeing continued growth, Patil believes that the valuations despite being a tad elevated offer long-term growth opportunities.
