As defined by market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), small-cap stocks are those ranking below 250 in the order of market capitalisation. These stocks are more sensitive to market movements, and exhibit more volatility. Here are the lists of popular small-cap stocks held by top 15 fund houses.
