Sensex high but not my portfolio….why?
The indices Sensex and Nifty are at all-time highs. However, most investors’ portfolios are not at all-time highs. Rather, a lot of investors are still feeling the pain of negative or low returns in their portfolios. Many might be puzzled and confused as to why are their portfolios showing negative or low returns when the markets are at an all-time high?
To understand this, we looked at the following data from S&P BSE:
Index YTD Returns
Sensex 11.34%
Sensex 50 9.32%
Sensex Next 50 -7.97%
BSE MidCap -9.63%
BSE SmallCap -13.43%

 It is easy to see that Sensex, which is the popularly followed index is showing 11.34% returns for the first seven months of the year. This is quite substantial. Similarly, Sensex 50 which is primarily Sensex 30 with additional 20 companies, is also showing quite large positive returns for the year.
However, the Sensex Next 50, which includes stocks which are large cap stocks but are smaller than the ones in Sensex 50, is showing negative returns of 8%. Similarly, the BSE MidCap and BSE SmallCap are showing still more negative returns.
Considering this, it is not surprising that most investor portfolios would be showing negative returns. In fact, except for the top 5-10 stocks a majority are in negative territory.
It is important to know that your equity schemes may comprise of various stocks in different proportions having different market capitalisation based on its category and objectives.
