List of top 5 gainers and losers in the Midcap and Smallcap segments for the week; 22nd to 28th October 2021.

On account of expensive valuations, concerns over inflation and policy stance by RBI, the Indian stock market became jittery, logging its biggest single-day loss in six months on Thursday with the Sensex losing 1158 points or 1.54% to close at 59984. The Sensex is trading at a high PE of 31.46 which is above its historical levels which is a concern for the market. Profit booking was seen across stocks on account of rising fear and discomfort at a high valuation and weak global clues. 

The S& P BSE Midcap and the BSE Smallcap 100 have plunged close to 2.25% and 2.06% respectively during the week. On Thursday, October 28, S&P BSE Midcap closed at 25236. while S& P BSE Smallcap closed at 28090.

The sharp growth was largely attributable to 2x sales growth and efficient working capital management.
