If we look at the stocks that have given stellar returns in the last five years, most of them belong to the mid and smallcap space. Hence, investors should filter quality stocks with long-term potential for their portfolio.

“Since 1977, market has gained during the financial year in which elections were held. During May, there will be volatility. We think that the pre-election rally is already on, and once the results are out we can see some profit booking and speculations,” Pritam Deuskar, Fund Manager at Bonanza Portfolio told Moneycontrol.

“Investors should stay invested in largecaps and larger midcaps if holding for more than six months or a year,” he said.
