Ways in which The M-cap canhelp the Individual Investors
Based on the market capitalization, firms are also classified as large-caps, mid-caps, and small-caps. In comparison to the mid or small-cap companies, the large-cap companies are less risky. So, by sticking to only large-cap companies, an investor who is equity and whose main aim is the risk involved in investing can minimize the M-cap. On the other hand, an investor who can tolerate the risk can consider the mid-cap or small-cap companies. In return, the companies can provide higher returns than the large-cap companies. But with it, this step comes with higher risk as well.
“Biggest Single-Day Fall” – Sensex Tumbled by 3.46 Percent
Last week, the Sensex dropped by 3.46 percent or 1,786 points which on Friday is considered as the biggest single-day fall in nearly 10 months. While cracking below the psychological 15,000-mark, the NSE Nifty plunged over 568 points tracking the global selloffs triggered by a panic in bond markets overseas.
TPT Policy Advocacy & Recommendations
- The investors must bring in some tactical plans so that the market capitalization can be fully used to revive the losses of the company. They must also put up some new methods so that the companies can increase the market cap by introducing new shares.
- How the Sensex has dropped to huge scale results in a rupee depreciation as a weak rupee could also negatively impact the FII flows into the Indian markets.
