Difference in 15 year CAGR of Sensex and BSE Smallcap Index is Less than 1%
May 2, 2019

Smallcaps are certainly a good place to look for big returns.

But that does not mean big bluechips offer you any less over long time frames. In fact, the best contrarian bets on such safe stocks could even offer you handsome three and digit returns.

If you still need more proof, take a look at the following chart.

The Sensex, BSE Midcap index and BSE Smallcap index have had differing degrees of volatility over past fifteen years.

But the returns from the three different indices are mostly in line since 2004. Rs 100 invested in any of these indices in 2004 would have yielded about Rs 700 by March 2019.

In fact, the gap in the compounded annual return of the Sensex and Smallcap index is less than 1%.
