Pidilite Industries: Pidilite Industries, a pioneer in consumer and speciality chemicals in India, can turn out to be a multibagger given its strong brand recall, superior pricing power and distribution reach. Pidilite is a strong play on recovery in discretionary spending.

UPL: UPL, a leading global manufacturer of crop protection products, has presence across the agri-input value chain from seeds to post-harvest chemicals. If investors stay invested in the stock, it could well turn out to be a multibagger. UPL’s well-diversified presence across key markets, products and crops act as a key factor behind its ability to outpace industry growth. Further, the merger with AdvantaBSE 0.82 % will help UPL to expand its product portfolio.

Bharat Electronics (BEL) : BEL has a 37 per cent market share in Indian defence electronics. The current order book is robust at Rs 34,675 crore (over 60 per cent YoY in Q2 of FY17). With the government focus on domestic manufacturing through ‘Make In India’ and defence focus, PSUs that focus on R&D will benefit. BEL’s competitive advantage of working with DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) on new technology for more than three decades will further ensure higher orders for next 3-5 years.

KNR Constructions (KNR) : KNR is a leading EPC player focusing largely on national and state highway projects. Healthy order book of four times trailing 12-month revenue insulated with 104 per cent YoY rise in order inflow in Q2 of FY17 is providing the essential glimpse of future performance for the next two to three years

Bharat Forge (BFL) : BFL is now exploring opportunities in Aerospace & Defence sector and the orders from Boeing and new defence JV with AM General will provide higher revenue visibility in non-auto sector during FY18. Export revenue will recover with the pick-up in US truck sales and rise in crude price (oil exploration business) will improve non-auto utilisation.
