Mid Cap Funds – November 2022

Before I start off on any analysis in this segment, even at the cost of a repetitive bore I will put forth this disclaimer. All fund schemes are taken as direct. However, even if you are a direct investor, hire a financial advisor that you trust who can guide with investments. Pay for your advice.

Fund category definition: Funds with minimum 65% portfolio allocation to Mid Cap (101-250 by market cap size) stocks

Benchmark: Nifty Mid Cap 150 TRI with a change of 1.94% in November 2022 and a 1-year return of 8.74%.

All data as on: 30th November, 2022

Summary

mid-cap-funds-summary-nov-22

With the merger of L&T and HSBC mutual funds, HSBC India Mid Cap fund come back in at ninth spot pushing UTI out.

Sundaram has hitched up it’s expense ratio by almost 15%, bringing it up to a pricey 1.03%.

Nippon has increased it’s portfolio size by 3 whereas SBI has reduced it’s portfolio by 3.

This month, in this category too the greens are a rare sight with only three funds (HDFC, Nippon and Mirae) making the cut. In the one-year performance, Kotak and Sundaram add on to make it a 50-50 bet for green and red split.     

Market Cap Allocation

I limit myself to mentioning market cap allocation changes above 2%, which yet again finds no takers this month.

Axis is the only fund that remains below the 90% equity exposure mark.

Top 5 Sectors

It’s been a very quiet month on the sector allocation front.

Franklin sees an organic swap between Consumer Durables and Cement with the latter inching it’s way to the Top 5 Sectors.

In Sundaram, although there is 0.95% increased allocation to Shriram Transport Finance, Financial as a sector sees a drop with LIC Housing Finance getting a 1.08% slash (down to a barely-there 0.13%) and a complete exit from Shriram City Union Finance (0.69%). Instead, Consumer Non-Durables fills in the vacuum with a place in the Top 5 Sectors.
