Small & mid-caps carnage continues; these 11 stocks in BSE-500 rose 10-30% in 5 days

The carnage in the broader market continued as both small and midcap indices underperformed benchmark indices for the week that ended on February 15.

The S&P BSE Small-cap index and the S&P BSE Mid-cap index dropped 2.96 percent and 2.71 percent respectively, compared to both S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty50 which fell by about 2 percent respectively in the same period.

“Market slid due to a broad-based selling across sectors as rising yields and a weak rupee cast clouds over investor’s sentiment. Volatility may continue due to a lack of positive triggers in the domestic market, while rising oil prices will impact domestic macros in the near term,” Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services, told Moneycontrol.

“Global markets turned negative due to obstacles in the US-China trade deal,” he said.
