Cool funds for a hot market

Value Research | October 24, 2005

Keeping far from all the market frenzy is a set of funds that have avoided the hot mid-cap and small-cap stocks.

They continue to back the bluechips of the Indian stock market.

Their resolve not to get carried away by the returns of mid-caps stocks has been laudable. However, they have paid a price in terms of returns.

All of them have largely remained middle of the road performers in the last two years.

But as the stock market goes through its ups and downs, these funds are most likely to be the ones flying high; they will also be the least volatile

- Net Asset Values and returns are as on October 21, 2005.

- All data refers to the growth schemes. In such schemes, dividends are not distributed from the profits but are ploughed back into the scheme resulting in a higher NAV.

- Portfolio as on September 30, 2005.
