The Nifty gained strength in the last hour of trade and closed on a strong note on September 13, driven by hopes of a further stimulus by the government. The European Central Bank (ECB) stimulus and easing of US-China trade tensions also lifted sentiment.

The index recouped its previous day's losses to close above 11,050 and formed a bullish candle on daily, as well as the weekly charts, indicating strength in the market.

If the index gains further and gives strong breakout above the next resistance set at 11,141 levels, it can rally towards the crucial 11,300 levels, experts feel.

Here are the top 4 stocks which can give good returns:

SMC Global Securities

The competitive edge Ajanta Pharma has built over the years, in terms of customised products for every market where it operates, continues to provide it the impetus for growth. The company continues to strengthen product portfolio through new launches, many of them being first-to-market products, offering significant patient benefits.

In terms of rate of interest, the company is well positioned between other housing finance companies (HFCs) and the bank. According to the management of the company, to gain more strength towards the market share, the company is focusing on the affordable home loan segment. Moreover, it has a track record of delivering robust financial performance. Going forward the company is likely to maintain the same on the back of healthy loan growth expectation and expansion in NIM.
