With at least 46 stocks on the BSE delivering up to 340 percent returns 2021 is turning out to be a year for multibagger stocks. The stocks belonged to small-cap, mid-cap, and large-cap companies.

Here are some of the multibagger stocks listed from the BSE 500 index that have gained the most since 1 January 2021.
Top multibagger stocks of 2021

2. JSW Energy
With its primary business being the generation of power from its plants, JSW energy has been acting bullish since the beginning of 2021 as the shares of the company have gained 270 percent. Its bullish nature can be owed to the company’s efforts to reduce debt consistently. Moreover, the increasing FII holding has helped the stock. As of June 2021, the promoters held a 74.7 percent stake in the company against FIIs 5.9 percent. With oil and crude prices surging, an increased focus on cleaner energy solutions will add more gains to its stock.
