Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) is a power equipment major. In Gujarat, Narendra Modi has ensured that power reaches every village. Now, his govt is likely to take initiatives to boost power production, given the huge shortage the country faces. This should benefit a company like Bhel. The stock could rise from the current levels of Rs 229.

IDFC has recently got a banking license. If one holds the stock for the long term, it's highly possible that the stock could appreciate, given that economic growth prospects are likely to improve under the new NDA regime. However, since transformation into a bank is likely to take time, the stock has to be held for the long term. IDFC is currently trading at Rs 124.
