Vinod Nair, Head of Research At Geojit Financial Services On Mid And Smallcaps Valuation

"We believe that the valuation of Mid & Smallcaps remains appealing when compared to the trends of the past seven years. Specifically, Smallcaps appear to be even more attractive than Midcaps in the current scenario.

Although there has been strong performance in the short term by Mid & Smallcaps, sustaining this in the near term may pose a challenge."
