Amfi Classification: Multibagger Midcaps NHPC, BHEL Among 7 Poised for Largecap Upgrade!

In the upcoming Amfi Semi-Annual Categorisation for the second half of 2024, seven midcap stocks are expected to be upgraded to the largecap category. These stocks are Hero Motocorp, Zydus Lifesciences, JSW Energy, NHPC, Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL), Bosch, and Samvardhana Motherson International. The final decision will be based on the semi-annual cut-off date, which is June 30, 2024, according to a note by IIFL Securities.

Expected Largecap Upgrades

These seven midcap stocks have shown impressive performance over the past year, with four of them delivering outstanding returns, also known as multibaggers. BHEL leads the group with a whopping 247% return. Hero Motocorp, Samvardhana, and Bosch have also performed well, achieving high double-digit returns of up to 96%.


Potential Downgrades to Midcaps

On the flip side, some current largecap stocks are expected to be downgraded to midcap status. These include ICICI Prudential Life Insurance Company, ICICI Lombard General Insurance Company, Polycab India, SRF, Marico, SBI Cards & Payment Services, and Berger Paints. Among these, SBI Cards and Berger Paints have been the poorest performers, with negative returns of 23% and 11% respectively over the last year. All but Polycab India and ICICI Lombard have underperformed the Nifty, which has shown a 25% return during this period.
