East India Securities sees Nifty around 12,000 by year-end. Here are its 4 multibagger picks

Yes….albeit with higher volatility. Year End target is around 12000 for Nifty which is 17 X estimated Nifty EPS for FY20. We expect nifty earnings growth to be robust for next 2-3 years so a 17 multiple on forward earnings should be reasonable.
