3) Coal India

Implementation and completion of these projects depend upon critical extraneous factors such as possession of land, green clearances and evacuation infrastructure, the Coal Ministry said in its annual report 2020.
The stock of Coal India is known for its dividend yields and in the last few months has seen the stock rally, as metal stocks have seen a spectacular rally.
4) Bank of Maharashtra

PSU banking stocks have recently surged in trade, following hopes of better than expected financial performance in the years to come.
Emkay Global has a "buy" on the stock of Petronet LNG. "We cut FY22/23E earnings per share by 13%/11%, assuming lower volumes and Kochi tariffs. We also increase WACC and capex though not building retail/CBG into our earnings model. We hence lower our DCF-based target price by 15% to Rs 290. Maintain Buy but with equal weight stance," the brokerage has said.
