Retail investors have burnt their fingers and have seen their wealth erode over the past six months. An analysis of the shareholding pattern of 206 companies from the S&P BSE All-cap index where retail investors have increased their stake over 1 percentage points in past six months shows up to 86 per cent fall in stock prices during the period. The S&P BSE All-cap index accounted for 97 per cent market capitalisation of companies listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).
