Adani Green

In a short span of time, Adani Green Energy has become India’s largest solar generation company. Its journey began in 2012 with a modest yet the largest-of-its-time solar power plant of 40MWp using thin film technology at Bitta in Kutch, Gujarat.

Its most recent and stellar achievement is the world’s largest solar power plant of 648MW AC at Kamuthi in Tamil Nadu, India. Recently Adani Green through its wholly owned subsidiary, Mahoba Solar (UP) Private Limited won tenders for setting up 300 MW solar generation projects.

With these tender wins, Adani Green now has a portfolio of renewable generation capacity of 3.45 GW with 1.96 GW operational projects and balance 1.49 GW in development stage.

The company has targeted to build 10,000 MW power generation capacity by 2022. Indian government has a strong focus on using renewable energy sources and wants to achieve its aim of 175 GW of renewable energy by 2022. We are recommending a Buy on Adani Green.

Reliance Industries

Reliance is a must have stock in your portfolio as its chairman has reinforced his vision of a strategic transition to a technology platform company with three key verticals of mobile connectivity, fiber connectivity and new commerce platform for retail business.

Reliance is exploring three new business opportunities in agriculture, education and healthcare. This transition will happen through Jio's strength of network capacity, which has increased over 100 percent in the last one year.

Reliance gives an opportunity to play the Indian growth for the next decade. As India's youngest population basket will grow and they will need higher consumption of data, it is imminent that we might see a multi-year bull rally in Reliance. We are recommending a Buy.

Disclaimer: Reliance Industries Ltd. is the sole beneficiary of Independent Media Trust which controls Network18 Media & Investments Ltd.


Post Infosys poor set of numbers and weak operation performance one thing is quite clear that TCS is going to remain market leader in foreseeable time.

TCS has seen superb transition from Ramodarai to Chandra to current management. It gives us an opportunity to play the global growth recovery. We are quite bullish on the stock and are recommending a Buy.

It has won billions of the orders in the last two quarters which will be executed in the coming years. It has strengthen its digital and diliganta business in the last two years.

Dependency on the top client has reduced a lot as company has successfully mined new clients. It is also a must have stock in your portfolio.
