  1. Quess may be a better bet as Mahanagar Gas gray market premium has reduced and listing show will now be subject to how our markets digest brexit. Has gray market activity picked up in Quess Corp?

    • I read on other websites that GMP is around 160 but I”m new to markets. Can someone please help how can I buy shares of Quess in grey market?

          • That’s not what I said. I want to invest in stocks but not at any cost. I read more about margins and how it bills sales. You are right but that doesn’t change anything, PE ratio is still high. Another brexit like event and it will be crashing. Let’s see, listing date is not far.

          • I agree Quess is overpriced but this is exactly what happens in bull markets. I’ve seen at least three cycles of boom and bust and it is no different this time. I keep an eye on IPO grey market, kostak reviews AND valuations and take a call accordingly.

            We have just shrugged off Brexit that gives me confidence of the Indian market’s resilience. I’m going to apply in Quess IPO.

  2. I am interested in buying 1000 shares of Quess in grey market
    Let me know the best rate and if possible call at 9876131880

  3. Quess is excellent, all brokers are recommending to invest. Allotment will be hard to get though, Link Intime again.

    • Ab kya milega 32 times oversubscription pe. But don’t worry, you have not lost anything, everyone is a loser when this kind of subscription happens

  4. Kostak price of Quess has come down last week as subscription is very high. It will give at least 50% return to the lucky ones though on listing.

  5. Quess is good and will give solid returns to those who get allotment but L&T Infotech may be better IMO. Fools are not going to apply coz they are busy counting the number of cases involving the company, taking back offer letters and assault on female personnel etc. This looks like an opportunity to me.

  6. From Link Intime website –

    • I agree with Raja V, mutual funds have rewarded investors much better than iPOs. I’ve around 25% of my equity portfolio in MFs and the returns have been good without the unnecessary risks.

    • Viraj, hope you got your answer. Quess went nowhere after listing. IPO market is currently riding a wave, you need to be very careful. Instead of IPOs, think of buying something more meaningful with good dividend yield.

  7. what a blockbuster listing! i tried to play intra-day but did not make sense once it crossed 490. there was a perceptible bounce in last one hour. but what an amazing debut!

    • The debut was amazing but the crash today was even more spectacular. It still trades with good profit on allotment price but brutal for people who are holding.

  8. I agree with bull_sinha. Better to buy stuff with good div yield. there are good sectoral leaders that are at decent multiples and offer good yields. Monsoon should be good for agro-chem cos like UPL and Monsanto. Even the beaten down auto guys like Tata Motors look nice.
