Most experts feel that the big outperformance could come from the broader markets, which are already down in double digits from their respective peak. The S&P BSE Midcap index is still down by about 14 percent from its 52-week high while the S&P BSE Smallcap index is down by over 19 percent from its peak of 17,517.

"The week gone by was historic in terms of massive volatility – implied volatility and India VIX both had registered record highs but soon normalized reflecting the emotional sentiment of the Indian investors in the stock market," Jimeet Modi, Founder and CEO, SAMCO Securities & StockNote told Moneycontrol.

"Investors must ideally avoid large caps as they are in the overvalued zone while selective beaten down mid and small caps could be bought into. As of now, a wait and watch approach should be followed by markets at least till the Monetary Policy and Budget announcement by the newly elected government," he said.

As many as 20 stocks in the S&P BSE Midcap index rose 10-30 percent which include names like Tata Power, Adani Transmission, Indian Bank, Adani Power, Wockhardt, Canara Bank, Reliance Power, and Adani Enterprises, etc. among others.

Technical View:

The Nifty50 crossed the 12,000-level for the first time ever during the previous week on political stability as the BJP-led NDA is set to form the government for a second consecutive term.

The price action formed a bull candle with a higher high and higher low and a bullish gap between (11407- 11592) below its base signaling strength and positive bias. The index has major support at 11500 levels.

"The Nifty during previous week witnessed faster retracement of mid-April-May fall (11856-11108) by rallying over 900 points in just eight sessions," Dharmesh Shah, Head – Technical, ICICI direct told Moneycontrol.

"The faster retracement signifies a structural turnaround that makes us confident for an up move towards 12200 levels in coming weeks as it is the 138.2 percent external retracement of mid-April–May decline placed at 12142 levels," he said.
