Stocks to buy: Sensex hit an all-time high of 73,994.7 on March 2, while the Nifty 50 scaled its record high of 22,440.90 today.

The Indian stock market traded higher on Monday with the benchmark Nifty 50 index hitting a fresh record high level in early trade, led by positive global market cues.

The BSE Sensex hit an all-time high of 73,994.7 on March 2, while the NSE Nifty 50 scaled its record high of 22,440.90 today. The Nifty Midcap 100 index gained 0.2%, while the Nifty Smallcap 100 was down over half a percent.

The gains in equity markets came on the back of a strong rally in US and Asian markets along with better-than-expected Q3FY24 GDP data which came at 8.4% YoY. The strong growth number lifted sentiment and triggered a short covering rally on Dalal Street last Friday. 

However, concerns regarding the excessive valuations in the midcap and smallcap space still prevail, analysts said.
