Speaking of the current stock market scenario, note that the BSE smallcap index has surged 188% since the crash in March 2020.
Despite the index being up more than 1.8 times, Richa Agarwal, lead Smallcap Analyst at Equitymaster, believes smallcap stocks are set for a massive up move in 2021 and beyond.
The 188% gain in the smallcap index in current rebound is way short of almost 300% gains in the last two rebound cycles.
Here’s what Richa wrote in a recent edition of Profit Hunter…
- The Smallcap to Sensex ratio, a metric I often refer to get a sense of relative valuations, currently stands at 0.49 times. To be sure, this is higher than a median of 0.43 times.
And yet, it’s the lowest of all the peaks in the smallcaps so far. In the last cycle which peaked in January 2018, when the ratio touched 0.49, the peak was still 9 months away.
If you get these two things right, smallcaps will work wonders for you.
The offer will close on 29 July.
This is the 29th public offering to hit the primary markets in the current year 2021.
The price band for the offer has been fixed at Rs 695-720 per equity share.
The IPO comprises a fresh issue of Rs 10.6 bn and an offer for sale (OFS) of 6.3 m equity shares by promoter Glenmark Pharma.
The company has strong market share in select specialized APIs.
About 12 years before Glenmark Life Sciences filed its draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) for an IPO, its wholly-owned entity, Glenmark Generics had filed its draft prospectus and had even received approval from the markets regulator.
But the IPO was eventually cancelled along with other planned issues as the market conditions were not conducive.
Back then, Glenmark Generics housed Glenmark’s generics and active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) business. This was eventually amalgamated into the parent firm, reversing the decision to hive off the business in fiscal 2009.
In the same fiscal year, another hive-off was done, but only of the API business into Glenmark Life Sciences.
How the IPO of Glenmark Life Sciences sails through remains to be seen.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has allowed IDFC to exit the IDFC First Bank.
In a regulatory filing made to the BSE, IDFC said that the RBI on 20 July clarified that “after the expiry of lock-in period of 5 years, IDFC can exit as the promoter of ‘IDFC FIRST Bank.
Accordingly, the company can now exit as promoter of IDFC First Bank, as the five year lock-in period has ended.
This could pave the way for a potential reverse merger between IDFC and IDFC First Bank.
IDFC Bank was created by demerger of the infrastructure lending business of IDFC to IDFC Bank in 2015.
Reports suggest that shareholders of IDFC stand to benefit as a reverse merger could help unlock shareholder value, removing the holding company discount for IDFC shareholders. Currently the holding company discount for IDFC stands at 27.7%.
Earlier this month RBI had allowed the holding companies of Equitas SFB and Ujjivan Small Finance Bank to reverse merger with the bank.
