As per Richa Agarwal, lead smallcap analyst at Equitymaster, there could still be a lot of steam left to this smallcap rebound rally.

The smallcap index is still 20% away from the lifetime highs in January 2018.

Have a look at the history of previous smallcap crashes and rebounds over the last two decades...

As you can see, every big fall in the smallcap index was followed by a sharp up move, a minimum gain 200%. Twice the rebounds were just shy of touching 300%.

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 latest developments from the IPO space, as per a leading financial daily, nearly half a dozen unlisted companies are lining up to launch their initial public offer (IPO) next month.

Companies like Suryoday Small Finance Bank, ESAF Small Finance Bank, Nazara Technologies, RailTel, Burger King, Kalyan Jewellers and Antony Waste Management are among those that are conducting road shows and planning IPOs in December, The Economic Times mentioned in a report citing bankers.

So far this year, 12 companies have raised nearly Rs 250 billion through IPOs compared with Rs 123.6 billion raised by 16 companies in 2019.

Some of the companies that had deferred their IPO plans, now want to tap the market again on robust investor appetite, said bankers.

How the above IPOs sail through remains to be seen. Meanwhile, we will keep you updated on the latest developments from this space.

Speaking of IPOs, in one of his videos, Vijay Bhambwani shares his thoughts on the recent spate of IPOs and what it means for the market.
