Sensex hits fresh record high but here's why your portfolio is still bleeding

Updated : July 18, 2018 04:28 PM IST

To put things into perspective, the S&P BSE Sensex has risen nearly 8 percent in 2018. This compares to a 14 percent fall in the S&P BSE Midcap index and a 17 percent drop in the S&P BSE Smallcap index during the same period.
The performance across mid and small cap stocks for 2-3 years prior to the correction that started in January 2018 was stunning, primarily on account of improvement in earnings and expansion of P/E multiples.
Historically, market capitalization has an inverse relationship with both risk and return. Companies with larger market caps tend to offer lower returns, on average, than mid/small-cap stocks.
