15 multibagger small-cap stocks tumbled between 15% and 30% from 52-week highs; check full list

15 stocks have seen declines of up to 30% from their one-year highs. It's worth noting that all these stocks have recorded multibagger returns over the past year, and even with the recent adjustments, they still show gains ranging between 100% and 300%.

Small-cap stocks have faced significant pressure in recent sessions, even as benchmark indices reached new record highs. Investors in these stocks enjoyed a remarkable run over the past year, driving up valuations to expensive levels. 

Analysts note that even minor market corrections are prompting profit-taking among investors. The Nifty Small Cap 100 index has declined by nearly 3% this week, while the Nifty 50 has experienced a 0.51% increase during the same period. 

This indicates a shift in momentum towards large-cap stocks, as they underperformed when small-cap stocks skyrockted. Investors are now finding attractive valuations in large-cap stocks compared to their smaller counterparts.

In addition, markets regulator SEBI has introduced stress tests for the fund houses to undertake amid growing concerns about the valuations of small-cap stocks. The Securities and Exchange Board of India has reportedly asked the mutual fund houses that operate small-cap funds with a large corpus to share data on their holdings in the total free float of small-cap stocks.

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services, said that the divergence between large and small-cap stocks is likely to continue since valuation in the broader market remains highly elevated and the regulator has sent a clear message regarding the froth in the segment. 

"Therefore, investors have time, even now, to switch from small caps to fairly valued large caps and partly to fixed-income products. At this stage in the market, safety should be given priority over return," he added.
