Nifty SmallCap Daily Charts

Investor faith in small caps has been shaken as the SmallCap Indices are in absolute panic last Friday. Index closes 6.06% down on last Friday and down by 10.63% on the Union Budget 2018 week. The fear in Smallcap starts during the mid of Jan 2018 and the warnings by one of India’s richest bankers, Uday Kotak, of building of a stock market bubble.

“The amount of money that’s going into small- and mid-cap stocks is something on which we have to ask tough questions. You’re pushing all this (money) into a narrow funnel which inevitably runs the risk of a bubble,” said Uday Kotak in a Interview on January 16th.

Also the PE ratios peaked up in Smallcap and Midcap indices historically during the month Jan 2018. BSE Small-cap index stood at 129 while that for BSE Mid-cap index stood at 50. The PE for both the indices is higher than in the tech bubble of year 2000 and financial crisis of 2008.
