Share Market Live: Despite the Sensex falling 850 points, these smallcap stocks hit the upper circuit todayThe following is how these three smallcap stocks outperformed the market:

This week’s trading session begins with a bloodbath on the Indian market, as the Sensex falls below 59,000 and the Nifty 50 falls below 17,500. Domestic equities were sharply consolidated, with a broad-based selloff across sectoral indices. Investors were nervous as they anticipated the US Fed tightening monetary policy, a stronger dollar, and a slowdown in economic activity. Despite the broader market downturn, three small-cap stocks managed to defy the bearish tone and outperform indices by hitting the 20% upper circuit. Seamec, Ritesh Properties, and Sakuma Exports were the three small-cap companies.

The Sensex ended the day at 58,773.87, down 872.28 points or 1.46%. The Nifty 50 fell 267.75 points, or 1.51%, to 17,490.70. Banking stocks were the hardest hit, with auto, information technology, and metal stocks trailing behind. All sectoral indices were negative. Furthermore, massive profit booking in index heavyweights exacerbated the situation.

Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Service, commented on the market’s performance “Consolidation was triggered in the market in anticipation of the FED tightening monetary policy and concerns about a slowdown in global economic activity. The current risk-reward ratio does not favour investors, as the Nifty50 is now trading at a premium valuation of 21.5x P/E (1 year forward basis), which is higher than the long-term average. The market is facing near-term headwinds from the rising dollar index and higher US 10-year bond yields.”

“Market sentiment could remain volatile in coming sessions as the focus shifts back to global concerns of falling crude oil prices amid weakening demand, and US-China tussle over Taiwan,” said Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities.
