*****Happy New Year*****

May 2017 bring even more success and prosperity for IPO investors. We have a long list of upcoming IPOs and I’m personally waiting for IPO of BSE, NSE, CDSL, CL Educate and D Mart.

Happy New Year to everyone!! May 2017 be more joyous and prosperous than 2016!!

What is the next IPO??

no ipo for 15 days. happy christmas and new year!!!

u would soon get news for cl educate and pratap snacks on 4 th january

Dead stock. It is not moving at all after listing. There is no frenzy of buyers, I think it will correct from here.

Not moving in a down market is good!!!

Bumper! Super Duper! Listing price 490

Kya bumper bhai. It has come down to 476 which is just 11% gain. Even at 500, it will be only 17% profit.

I think 460 to 470 expecting listing. I am suscribing this ipo & i alloted .

what is listing prize

Above 470 I’m expecting but plan to wait for 500.

My dear fellow investors, I got allotment in two applications. Now my question is does it make sense to book profits on listing or hold it. If someone can update the latest GMP, that would be great too.

I applied for the ipo but didn’t get any shares

Any one got inf about allotment

Allotment declared now you can get detail at this link. No need to enter application number, just PAN card details will be enough

I get allotment. plan to selll on listing day, should it be a good choice???

Llisting may be between 475 to 485. go for sell

Hold may be a good idea Sahni ji. I don’t plan to sell below 500, in fact 550 also looks possible to me.

When is Pratap Food IPO coming?

Robin bhai, first let the allotment of Laurus come, I’m hoping to get shares this time.

PNB, allocation is out now. Chk this link

This allotment link is not working. I have tried with my details, it just says no bid details found.

It requires application number which I did not save. Will have to wait till tomorrow 🙁

Use PAN number to know allotment status.

The real game changer will be NSE IPO. But don’t just apply in the IPO because the whole world will apply and only a few will get and that also just one lot. Keep an eye on IFCI, more gains next week.

fantastic call sir, IFCI is up 4% today. NSE IPO isn’t far now.

After Sheela Foam, expect good listing in Laurus too. I entered 4 applications but allotment will be difficult

0.80 subscribed by 11:20am!

should be fully subscribed by lunch for sure!



A firm endorsement of Laurus labs future prospects & readiness by its own employees with their quota getting 98% subscription by end of Day-2 – the RIIs should take note & ramp up their bids tomorrow.

The QIB sentiment is of course crystal clear with an unlikely 100% subscription by Day-2 itself

Subscription is strong and i’m sure it will be a big hit. Applied 4 applications today.

Grey premium around 45/- for laurus but few brokers active now.

What is the meaning of grey premium and gmp?

Sanket, grey premium means the amount which someone else offers before listing to buy your shares. Strong premium means stronger listing.

Thanks Ankit. This not very high premium IMO. If the market corrects, this premium will go away.

Right but this is only grey premium which means at least 15% returns on listing. So the question is really of allotment. FIIs are very bullish according to subscription figures.

employees get discount of 40/- and after discount is the real value of Laurus. Why no discount for general investors??

Only a small % is assigned to employees by few companies. The discount given to the employees in not necessarily the true value of the share. The discount is handed to the employees to increase their engagement with the company and also showcase to retail investors the confidence that employees have on company’s future performance.

Laurus Labs allots 92,38,385 equity shares at INR428 per equity share aggregating to INR395.40 crore to 25 anchor investors.

Anchors include Goldman Sachs, HBM Partners, Nomura, Eastspring, Birla Sunlife MF, DSP Blackrock, ICICI Prudential MF, SBI MF, HDFC Life.

Strong anchor list. It looks Laurus IPO will do well. what are grey rates pls?

Now no scope of confusion. Instead of gambling money on Sheela, I’ll invest in Laurus. Pharma has been better and rewarded investors. Moreover, it is one of the sectors which will gain from a weaker rupee.

Isn’t it expensive? EPS is just 13.5 in 15/16

Approval of seven IPOs worth Rs 2,500 crore might lapse in the next three months if they don’t hit the market, data show. Timelines of other big-ticket IPOs gearing up to hit the market could also get impacted, said experts. Warburg Pincus-backed generic drug maker Laurus Labs (estimated issue amount of Rs 1,000 crore) and Sheela Foam (Rs 510 crore) reportedly aimed to hit the market with their offerings by November-end. IPOs worth Rs 24,500 crore have hit the market in 2016.

Bhai apply to tab karoge jab ye issue aayego. I’m hearing Sheela Foam is also coming but it is clearly a difficult time for IPOs so bankers and promoters are thinking hard before bringing their offers.

I will advise to apply if the price band will be between 300 to 350 apprx…

Exercise caution with every new ipo now…
