Top 5 stocks in Nifty 100 That Gave The Highest Returns in 2021


As the pandemic spread increased and decreased throughout the year, the stock market had ups and downs in 2021. Despite concerns over the second wave of covid infections, Indian stock markets outpaced emerging markets in the first six months. Due to the rising rate of immunisation, the government's stimulus measures, and the Reserve Bank of India's liquidity support operations, investors were glued to Indian stocks from January to June. The IPOs in the second half of the year functioned as an antidote for the stock market. In 2021, the Indian stock market benefited from a surge of money unleashed by global central banks, which supported domestic policies, as well as the world's largest vaccination campaign, which sparked a world-beating increase on Dalal Street, despite concerns about inflated values. These are the five stocks from the Nifty 100 with the best one-year returns.
