Why investing in small caps become feasible is because when the markets are at boom new investors cannot reap the benefit of such a trend and investing in large caps with already risen value will not really give much satisfaction. Hence, searching for multibagger stocks which includes small caps and mid caps with good business portfolio becomes one good option for any investors.
Usually there is not a fixed parameter to identify which is a large cap stock or which one is small cap. But mostly it is being known that, companies having over Rs 10,000 crore market capitalization fall under large caps category while below that under mid and small caps.
Investing in large caps are considered safe as they are stocks of large well-established companies with stable business models that are considered safe investment. These large cap stocks can give any investors moderate yet safe returns mid-cap companies are usually in the growing phase and have the potential.
On the other hand, small cap companies are the stocks which include startups, mature companies with small industry size etc. They could be big gainers but should be researched properly.
