Hmm - not sure but stocks of reputed and well established companies that do not get majorly affected by the movement of the sensex and have steady returns are blue chips - which point to large caps.

So in a way - yes - blue chips = large caps

This is what I fell:
Large caps are those who have more more market capitlization like Reliance. If there is any voltality in Reliance stocks, then the whole of the sensex rocks.

On the other hand, Blue chips are those companies who are doing well in their balance sheets and are not afected by the market volatility. If there is any down trend also, then these blue ship companies will recover within short time to its original positions.

Pls correct me if I'am wrong.

@snaronikar, I think you are correct.

In the current environment, there are a number of stocks which have run up a lot but arent backed by strong enough fundamentals or a long enough track record. As such, they are more susceptible to market moodswings. If you compare ITC to some of the real estate stocks, this contrast is quite apparent.

"Large caps" means large market capitalisation. Suppose we have two companies, X and Y, with 5 crore shares of face value Rs. 1 each. If market price of shares of company X is Rs. 25, while market price of shares of company Y is Rs. 50, company Y has a larger capitalisation than X, because number of shares multiplied by market price is more for company Y than for X.

Next is the issue "how large is large cap". This is generally a matter of current market price (prices vary - market prices of companies have gone up even 5X in last one year - L&T, Voltas, etc. The "large" in "large caps" is generally applied to top N number of companies; where N is an arbitrary number.

Coming to the question of blue chips. Blue chip companies are those which give consistent dividend, show consistent growth in sales, net profit and book value of shares over a period of time. Need less to say, the "blue chip" status may not stay with a company for ever. Consider Ambalal Sarabhai, for example. This company used to be investors' darling couple of decades ago. No longer now. And yes, Hindustan Motors. The "blue chip" status is very subjective - a bit like asking "which is best looking car of them all".

How much do you think i would? 225 - 210 = 15

Market is almost 600 points down. Its best to stop looking at it now and once it reaches bullish phase then to check the quotes.
