Home / Markets / Stock Markets13 to 212: This debt free multibagger stock surged 1,481% in 1 year

Jettisoning Indian equity market by Foreign Portfolio Investors (FPIs), the rupee has hit an all-time low, recent sharp rate hikes, and high inflation, account for weak global cues for the recent rapid decline in Indian equity markets. However, one BSE-listed stock, S & T Corporation Ltd., has provided a multibagger return in one year and has managed to maintain continuous positive traction for 30th straight sessions despite a weak market. This is regardless of the sluggish market, where both the Nifty and the Sensex have nearly reached their 52-week lows.
