TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Several analysts are of the opinion that mutual fund schemes, which have a reasonably good exposure to mid-sized companies with high focus on large ones, are likely to do well in the coming quarters.

One of the key reasons behind this is high valuations of largecaps. Even though large-sized companies are performing better than mid-sized companies in the near term, their elevated valuations may prompt fund managers to look for sound investment ideas in the midcap space.
