When does Nifty Review ?

  • The periodic review of Nifty 50 is done semi-annually.
  • Its meets the impact cost criteria and is twice the free float market capitalization of the constituent with the lowest free float market capitalization.
  • No of changes in a year is limited to 5


Due to this limit of only 5 changes in a year there can only be 2 more changes in this year as 3 took place in April. So next change would be in September/October.

Sectoral Weightage

Sectors Weight %
IT 16.63
ENERGY 10.75
MEDIA 0.81


Thoughts to Ponder on

  • PSU Banks weightage is now only 2.58% (SBI and Bank of Baroda) out of which Bank of Baroda could also be out of the Index in next 1 yr you never know.
  • Financial Services are 30% + of the index and generally everyone values it at Price to Book and other parameters and not P-E . Reduction of Low P-E PSUs to majorly Private Banks and Private Financials that generally quote at high P-E, does it imply a higher base P-E for Nifty for coming years ?

    Very valid points Nooresh. Current Nifty composition as you say has about 60% stocks from low-beta sectors (PVT Banks/IT/Pharma/FMCG/2-Wheelers) which is why some strategist in 2015 argued Indian Market is low-beta (High ROE/Defensive) pick within EM universe which has lot of countries with huge volatility (Russia, Brazil etc).
    I personally was wrong as I did not accept this argument till Feb 2016 happened. But, now I guess that is playing out when Nifty is refusing to correct even after rising sharply since budget day. Once Smallcaps catch up market may enter in true bull orbit.

      Hi Jigs,

      The composition of Index makes it difficult to move a lot 🙂 . Have been saying so for quite some time.

      Time to be stock specific and look out for new sectors.
