In news from the finance sector, Centrum Capital was among the top buzzing stocks today.

Shares of Centrum Capital surged 16% to Rs 58.5 per share today, scaling its new 52-week high after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) gave an 'in-principle' approval to Centrum Financial Services for setting up a small finance bank (SFB).

Both Centrum and BharatPe are ready to take over the crisis-ridden Punjab & Maharashtra Co-Operative (PMC) Bank as equal partners.

The joint venture floated by the Centrum Group and digital payments startup Bharatpe for launching a small finance bank will infuse Rs 18 bn capital into troubled PMC on its merger with the proposed bank, a top Centrum official has said.

On Friday, the Reserve Bank gave an in-principle approval to Centrum Financial Services, a step-down arm of the diversified financial services group, to set up a small finance bank (SFB) provided it took over the troubled PMC Bank.

The in-principle approval has been in specific pursuance to Centrum Financial Services' offer on 1 February 2021 in response to the expression of interest notification dated 3 November 2020 published by the PMC Bank, the RBI said.

Centrum Capital shares have been on a roll in 2021. The counter has delivered over 220% return in the ongoing year so far. The scrip has surged 41% in the last one month.

Centrum Capital share price ended the day up by 5% on the BSE.

Free Signup: The Smallcap Revival Summit

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.

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.
