The mid cap index has resolved out of bear phase as it logged a resolute breakout from the three years falling trend line, indicating resumption of major up trend. ICICI Securities believe that broader market would relatively outperform the benchmark, going ahead. The brokerage has created a medium term portfolio of hand picked five mid cap stocks after rigorous research. "The essence of attractive technical set up backed by robust fundamentals can offer handsome returns in a trending market," says ICICI Securities.

"Within mid cap space we have spotted consumer discretionary sector based on its higher relative strength ranking, where we can capture higher beta. We have run rigorous filters to identify such stocks that have the ability to withstand storm and relatively outperform the benchmark as these stocks have approached their key supports and thereby offers favourable risk reward," adds the brokerage.
