Which are the top value smallcap stocks in India right now?

As per Equitymaster's Stock Screener, here is a list of the top value stocks in India right now...

These companies are smallcap companies and have been ranked as per their PE (Price to Earnings) ratio. High PE stocks are considered to be overvalued stocks. And low PE stocks are said to be undervalued.

Generally, speaking, the top value stocks trade at a lower PE ratio as compared to their peers.

Of course, there are other parameters you should take into account before forming a hard opinion on the stock valuation.

What are smallcap stocks?

According to the market regulator, smallcap stocks are companies which rank 251st and beyond in terms of their market capitalisation.

Investing in them is perceived to be risky. However, the potential for higher returns makes them an appealing investment avenue.

What are value stocks?

Value stocks are companies trading that are undervalued relative to their earnings and long-term growth potential.

They can provide lower volatility and steadier growth over the long run. They can also provide the benefit of dividends, which are a significant plus during market declines.

Investing in value stocks was pioneered by Benjamin Graham and David Dodd at Columbia University in the 1920s.

Are there any famous investors that believe in investing in value stocks?

Legendary investors Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffett have based their entire investing philosophy on buying undervalued stocks i.e stocks that have a margin of safety.

However, they consider other parameters as well besides valuation such as high return on equity and high profit margins. They also focus on companies that provide a unique product or service that gives them a competitive advantage.

Here's a list of Indian stocks that could qualify per Warren Buffett's criteria...

Another famous investor who is an advocate for buying undervalued stocks is hedge fund manager and Columbia University professor Joel Greenblatt. His investing strategy involves buying undervalued stocks based on two parameters - high earnings yield and return on capital (RoC).

The earnings yield tells us whether the company is available at an attractive price. The RoC tells us how well the company has used its capital.

How much should you invest in the top value smallcap stocks?

According to us, in a scenario of ideal allocation of funds, small cap stocks should not comprise more than 10% of one's total equity portfolio.

Further, we believe that a single small cap stock should ideally not form more than 2-3% of the total portfolio.

Please note that this allocation will vary from person to person. For something that works best for you, we recommend you talk to your investment advisor.

How should you screen smallcap stocks?

Investing in smallcap stocks can be a tall order because they are less proven, and so are rife with speculative investment due to lack of data and operation history.

If you're looking to invest in the smallcap space, this is how you should screen for the best smallcap stocks.
