My Budget 2019 picks! These 5 stocks can add hefty money in your kitty

Notably, the next big thing is Union Budget 2019 followed by General Elections 2019 where the BJP alliance and the opposition is set to battle it out for the ultimate prize to run the country. However, one thing you, as the investor, should know is that this is the time to raise your hunger in stocks to a new level to really generate big profits. The trick is still to pick the right one! You need to identify and then buy valuable companies when they fall, if you want to become rich from equities.

Currently, both benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty are in a price correction mode, which makes many wonderful stocks affordable and brings in greater opportunity for higher returns. But know here that the risks abound and all actions should be carefully vetted before going ahead. You must minimise risk and yet maximise gains to ensure you come out smiling ear to ear.

Talking about the upcoming budget and its impact on markets, analysts at ShareKhan said, "Volatility may be the order of the day as oil prices, trade wars, general elections and Union Budget play out and investors will have to use patience as well as valuations to guide through the year. We expect to keep nibbling on quality stocks and use price corrections to add fundamentally strong stocks identified by our research team."

This means that the volatility which is currently stressing investors will see relief ahead. Hence, rather than panicking, let's pick stocks that can turn best bets for this year.

According to Debadrata Bhattacharjee, Head of Research, CapitalAim, these five stocks can be your wise investment options before Budget. They are all set to make you rich!

If Govt spending increases in infra projects, cement is the likely sector that will give positive returns post budget presentation. ACC is the counter that one can bet on. From Rs 1400 to Rs 1420, ACC can be accumulated and one can see Rs 1495 in near term.
