Small Caps Under Seige: Could This Be A Once-in-a-Decade Wealth Creating Opportunity?

Feb 14, 2019

Richa Agarwal, Research analyst

As I write this, 400 smallcap stocks have reportedly touched 52-week lows. It's indeed a blood bath - my own recommendations haven't been spared either.

This kind of correction in the small cap space has happened after a long time. And I won't be surprised if it puts many first-time investors off equities for a long time, depriving them of a once-in-a-decade opportunity (the last sharp correction in small caps was in 2011, and was followed by a sharp comeback).

Our co-head of research, Tanushree Banerjee, has uncovered this one stock, which she believes is a must have in your portfolio.

Tanushree is very bullish on this stock.

It could potentially multiply invested money 12 to 13 times over the long term.

Tanushree will reveal details of this stock at her upcoming special event.

I recently got a query from a subscriber asking if it would not make sense to wait a little more and buy small caps when they have corrected even more.

Theoretically, it makes perfect sense.

The only issue is we will know the bottom only in hindsight. And it's not just us. Many a great investor in the early stages of their careers have tried doing this and failed spectacularly.

Most mature investors unanimously agree that timing the market is an exercise in vain. One can never get it consistently right.

While I have no view on how deep this correction could go or when it will reverse, I'm certain of one thing - markets move in cycles.

While smallcaps are under a bear grip now, it will be followed by a phase of recovery. And as that happens, quality stocks in the small cap space will make a fast comeback.

How to Earn a Fortune in Gold, the Smart Way

Gold is on 'the verge of a decadal run' says Vijay Bhambwani, India's #1 Trader and Editor of Fast Profits Daily at Equitymaster.

He says gold has the potential to generate staggering gains in the coming years...And those who are betting on gold right now will hit the jackpot.

But wait.

While gold is an attractive investment destination, there's a very specific way to play this opportunity...

A way that ensures you rake in maximum profit and perhaps hit the jackpot...while minimizing potential pitfalls. Thankfully, Vijay - India's #1 Trader - can guide you step-by-step in the upcoming gold rush and help hit the jackpot just at the right time.

Sure, you don't want to be an average trader. That's not how you make a fortune.

Here's how you can get Vijay's guidance...

This comeback could happen pre-elections, post elections or may even take over a year. And before the comeback, the correction could get even more severe.

That's the uncertainty that we will unfortunately have to live with.

But then in equities, and especially smallcaps, there is no gain without pain (volatility and downcycles).

The only way to consistently master these cycles is to focus on the right time rather than timing.

The right time is when the market price of a business seems to be at sharp discount to intrinsic value of a business. Speaking of which, I see a great rebound opportunity in some quality small caps that I have recommended to my subscribers, and that have corrected sharply amid the recent carnage in the market.

With the right asset allocation, these stocks could be a vehicle to get rich and beat the broader market returns in the next small cap upcycle.

Until then, let patience and value (rather than price) be your guiding mantra.
