As you can see, since the start of 2020, small caps have beaten large caps by a wide margin.

In news from the aviation space, Jet Airways' Committee of Creditors (CoC) on Tuesday decided to extend the deadline for submission of bids to March 10 as a new entity evinced interest in the airline.

The deadline for submitting the bids for Jet Airways, which is undergoing the insolvency process, ended on Monday.

Against this backdrop, the CoC extended the deadline for submission of bids to March 10.

Earlier, South American conglomerate Synergy Group and New Delhi-based Prudent ARC were given time to submit a resolution plan. Reportedly, they failed to meet the deadline.
