A maturing market amid the mayhem
Small caps shine
From the 463 stocks in the small cap index, around 30 posted double-digit gains, data from Thomson Reuters showed.
Firstsource Solutions, a company involved in IT-enabled services, was the top traded counter of the day. Its stock has jumped by 153 percent in 2009.
The small cap index has been on a roll and has gained 96 percent since April this year, beating its mid-cap counterpart.
But small cap stocks are generally considered more risky when compared to large or mid-cap counters.
Do you think your investment portfolio should contain such stocks to cash in on their rise?
