Important Highlights from Motilal Oswal
Since March of this year, the midcap 100 and smallcap 100 have outpaced the Nifty. The midcap 100 and smallcap 100 have had 13/8 months of positive returns in a row.
This is the highest level ever for the Midcap 100, and the second highest level ever for the Smallcap 100.
The re-rating component has diminished, but profits growth has been a primary driver of Nifty and Midcap 100 index total gains over the last 5 years (June 2016-June 21).
The earnings for FY22 are projected to start off strong, with Nifty earnings expected to increase by 94 percent year on year. Lockdowns in April and May, on the other hand, will result in a 19 percent Q-o-Q drop in earnings for the MOFSL/Nifty universe.
