In the equity market which is characterised by its ebbs and flows, it is difficult to find stocks that consistently generate wealth for investors. This is especially true in the current situation where pulls to each side are of such magnitude that more often than not, investors are left wondering on the sidelines. However, amid all the chaos there are some hidden gems that have not only managed to beat the market blues but have consistently augmented investor wealth quarter-on-quarter.

Today, we are going to talk about seven Sensex stocks that have consistently given double-digit price return in each of the last three quarters. A rising profit margin in each quarter of FY21 may have helped the stock's price performance.

The stocks that made the cut are Bajaj Finance, HCL Technologies, IndusInd Bank, Infosys, Mahindra & Mahindra, Maruti Suzuki India, and Tata Consultancy Services.

It may not be surprising to see IT names dominate the list of these seven stocks. The sector was among the least impacted by COVID-19 induced slowdown. Stocks from auto, banking and finance also found a place in the list.

Five out of seven stocks from the list have already turned multi-baggers in FY 21, data from ACE Equity. An interesting theme that emerged was that most of these companies have seen improvement in their profit margin in each quarter compared to its preceding quarter of FY21.
