Speaking of the current stock market scenario, note that the BSE Smallcap index touched life-time high recently.

Despite the index being up more than 157% since the March 2020 lows, Richa Agarwal, lead Smallcap Analyst at Equitymaster, believes smallcap stocks are set for a massive up move in 2021 and beyond.

BREAKING: It's Good Time to Invest in Gold, but Just Don't Go Blindfolded

Here's why...

As per Richa, the smallcap to Sensex ratio is a good metric to gauge while coming to some conclusions about relative valuations.

So, what is this indicator suggesting now?

As you can see from the chart below, the ratio currently stands at 0.46 times, as compared to long term average of 0.43 times.

Here's what she wrote about it in a recent edition of Profit Hunter:

  • In the last one year, the smallcaps have done well to cover the gaps with the large peers.

    But it could be premature to call this a peak.

    In the previous two rounds, the average ratio has been 0.57, suggesting more upside from these levels.

Richa believes if you focus on the quality of business, margin of safety in valuations, and an optimum asset allocation, you are likely to create huge wealth for yourself.

In other news from the IT sector, Wipro said its step-down subsidiary, Wipro IT Services, has approved a proposal for issuing US dollar denominated notes of up to US$ 750 m.

The net proceeds of the notes, which are proposed to be listed on the Singapore stock exchange, are intended to be utilised for refinancing the existing debt and general corporate purposes, a regulatory filing said.

The notes will be guaranteed by Wipro vide a corporate guarantee, it said.

In a statement, Wipro said, "The board of directors of the company, at their meeting held on 9 June 2021, granted its approval to 'unconditionally and irrevocably' guarantee the due and prompt payment of the principal and interest and any additional amount payable in respect of the notes, as and when the same shall become and payable."

The guarantee is subject to the aggregate liability of the company not exceeding US$ 865 m (115% of the principal amount of the notes), it added.

We will keep you posted on more updates from this space. Stay tuned!
