Ravi Shenoy, assistant vice-president (mid-cap research), Motilal Oswal Securities, says: “I don’t think anything has changed fundamentally. It’s liquidity that is chasing these stocks.

In addition, I think investors are now entering the market and buying stocks that have not rallied much. As long as the overall sentiment is positive, mid-cap and small-cap stocks should continue to do well.”

Kishor Ostwal, chairman and managing director, CNI Research, says, “The election outcome is a major driver.

I feel the worst for the Indian economy is behind us.

Inflation seems to be under control and a recovery in manufacturing could be the key driver.

Indian markets did not participate in the global rally earlier; therefore, they are now playing catch-up.

The fact that Indian markets consolidated through the last two years suggests it is now ready for the cyclical bull market…

The best performers will be mid- and small-caps, which are still languishing compared to their large-cap peers. I feel FIIs will turn their attention to the mid- and small-cap segments very soon.”

Analysts at Angel broking are positive on several cyclical sectors.

“Banks, automobile, capital goods, infrastructure and other cyclical sectors are likely to benefit substantially from an economic upturn, policy reforms and declining inflation.

Moreover, these sectors are still trading at highly beaten-down valuations, making it an ideal time to invest in these,” they said in a recent report.
