Top 4 Small-cap Multibagger Stocks to Add to Your Watchlist

India has been one of the most successful emerging markets in the last couple of years. The BSE Sensex and the Nifty 50 have returned 16.4% and 17.8%, respectively, during the last year.

From the market bottom in March 2020, till December 2021, small-cap stocks have outperformed largecaps.

However, concerns over the Federal Reserve's projected interest rate hikes, geopolitical tensions between Russia and Ukraine, and high valuations, sent smallcap stocks into a tailspin in the first two months of 2022.

The BSE Small-cap index has dropped about 8% in the previous two months.

Small-cap stocks are volatile in nature and are prone to market downturns. Investing in smallcaps in the current market scenario is risky. But some stocks have emerged as multibaggers from this space.

If an investor had invested in this digital marketing company a year ago and had remained invested, Rs 1 lakh would have turned to Rs 24.7 lakh today.

The rise in Brightcom Group shares may be linked to the company's good financial performance, a plethora of favourable events, and business expansion.

The Ad-Tech company registered 168% growth in consolidated net profit at Rs 3.7 bn for the quarter ended 31 December 2021, against Rs 1.4 bn in the same period last year.

To reward its investors, the company's board of directors announced a 2:3 bonus shares. The move will boost liquidity in the stock.

Is it a good time to buy small-cap stocks?

Smallcaps offer not only potential growth but diversification away from companies in the largecap and midcap universe.

However, small-cap stocks can be quite volatile. That isn't necessarily a problem, but some investors don't have the appetite for wild swings.

Small-cap stocks may have a place in your portfolio if you are willing to maintain an investment for several years and are fine with the stock price moving considerably.

Owning small-cap stocks can enhance the overall growth rate of your portfolio if you commit to a buy-and-hold investment approach.
