    Mid-caps likely  to rise further

    "With the Dow crossing the 30000 mark for the first time, there is euphoria in global stock markets. Declining dollar index is pushing FII flows and India is a major recepient of this huge capital flows. In November, till date, FIIs have invested a record Rs 55553 crores in India. This frenzied buying is unprecedented. Even though  lots of justifications - economic, political & policy related- can be given for this massive global rally, the fact is that this rally is predominantly liquidity driven. Valuations are rich and in many cases approaching bubble territory. If the Sensex goes past 45000, some profits may be booked  and cash levels in portfolios raised. Mid-caps are likely to rise further," said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.
