Betting big on midcaps, Credit Suisse says large valuation gap between segment leader and a smaller company sometimes provides an opportunity for higher stock returns by smaller company.


Explaining the phenomenon, Credit Suisse says that segment leaders traditionally trade at a premium due to multiple factors such as superior historical track record, better financial metrics, relatively more robust corporate governance frameworks and higher market cap and liquidity. However, it points out, valuation gap closes due to consistency and superior performance by smaller players.
