At a time when the equity market is witnessing high volatility due to rising inflation, policy tightening, and sustained selling by foreign investors, some stocks have turned multibagger and delivered multifold returns to investors. Rice milling company Kohinoor Foods is one such stock that has risen more than 800% in just two months compared with 11% decline in the BSE benchmark Sensex. Precisely, the penny stock has surged 813% in two months, with share price rising from its 52-week low of ₹7.77 on April 6, 2022, to ₹70.95 in intraday today.

If you had invested ₹1 lakh in the stock at ₹7.77 apiece in April this year, it would have become ₹9.13 lakh today.

Outperforming the benchmark indices, the stock has been gaining for the last 47 sessions and has hit 5% upper circuit during this period. The equity shares of Kohinoor Foods resumed trading on April 6, 2022, after the exchange revoked suspension of trading in the security. Before this, the stock had last traded on May 3, 2021, after which the exchange suspended the equity shares of Kohinoor Foods for non-compliance with listing obligation and disclosure requirements as per SEBI Regulations, 2015.

Kohinoor Foods currently trades under the T group on the BSE and under the BE (book entry) category on the NSE. Shares falling in the BE segment have to be settled by accepting or giving the delivery of shares and no intraday netting of positions is allowed.
