Khadim India, Kamdhenu, Trident, Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri (TBZ), and Electrotherm (India) that others from the S&P BSE Allcap index surged between 50 per cent and 90 per cent during the week.

IDBI Bank was locked in the upper circuit for the fifth straight day and has zoomed 89 per cent in the current week as the bank turned profitable in March quarter after 13 straight quarters of loss. The lender posted a profit of Rs 135 crore for the March quarter (Q4FY20) on account of recoveries from bad loans. It had posted a net loss of Rs 4,918 crore in the corresponding period of last year.

A sharp rally in the private sector bank has seen IDBI Bank become the sixth most valued listed lender. The bank surpassed Bandhan Bank, YES Bank, and IndusInd Bank in market capitalisation ranking during the week.

Saregama India was frozen at the upper circuit for the third straight days, soaring 63 per cent in the past five trading days on the BSE. The company on Wednesday announced a global deal with Facebook to license its music for video and other social experiences across Facebook & Instagram.

Vodafone Idea has surged 52 per cent during the week and re-entered the elite club of top-100 most valued Indian companies in terms of market valuation. The shares of the telecom services provider hit an over nine-months high today after the foreign brokerage CLSA issued a ‘buy’ rating on the stock with a 12-month price target of Rs 12. The foreign brokerage firm sees further upside from average revenue per user (Arpu) growth, likely adjusted gross revenue (AGR) resolution, and potential floor tariffs.

Chalet Hotels and Shoppers Stop have rallied 55 per cent and 54 per cent, respectively, after the government on Saturday said that restaurants, hotels, and other hospitality services would be allowed to function from June 8, along with shopping malls and complexes, as part of 'Unlock 1.0' strategy to resume economic activity.
