The gains came on a day the Nifty and the Sensex fell by almost 1 per cent each.   According to experts, even though the Q4 numbers of PSBs that have announced results so far are weaker than expected, earnings visibility is emerging and, in all probability, asset quality worries of PSBs have peaked.

Between May 26, 2014 when the Modi government was sworn in and May 23, 2018, the S&P BSE Mid-cap and the S&P BSE Small-cap indices have rallied 86 per cent and 81 per cent respectively, as compared to around 39 per cent rise in the S&P BSE Sensex, ACE Equity data shows.   Analysts attribute this outperformance to the government’s proactive economic reform measures and low crude oil prices that translated into a better operational performance for the mid-and-small cap companies that eventually got translated into the stocks rallying at the bourses.
