Stockmarkets: Romancing the bulls
Aug 16, 2005

The Indian stockmarkets have been on a roll, especially the Sensex, which has hardly paused for breath since the beginning of May 2005. Though the Nifty has not been fortunate enough to claim the title of an uninterrupted 15-week run, a feat not witnessed in the recent history of nearly a decade, it nonetheless managed to gain over 24% in this period. The Sensex, on the other hand, has gained over 26%. Further, the mid-cap and the small-cap indices have outperformed the benchmark index in this period partly because many Sensex and Nifty stocks have hit their FII limits while the money has continued to pour in. Thus, with 15-weeks of gains under its belt, we look at which BSE indices outperformed/lagged the Sensex.

The 15-week affair…
