Market capitalization can be helpful to diversify your portfolio because it is essential to pick different sized companies to minimize the risk associated with your investment. One of the basic features of blue-chip stocks is large market capitalization. On the other hand, the company with small market capitalization can become the most valuable companies in your portfolio if they become successful. But they have a high risk compared to large-cap companies.

Market cap is also a useful metric to determine the changing position of a company in the stock market either it be large, medium or small companies. Likewise, it also reflects the overall market behavior and sentiment too. For instance, when the total market cap of a Nepalese stock market increases on a daily basis for a time period, it is understandable that the market is on an upward trend and vice versa.
