          • Of course, it will be a flop at such high PE ratio. I don’t like BSE as a stock exchange, I trade on NSE. As a trading platform, BSE has been losing out and its margins will only decrease IMO. Nothing great in this IPO, I’ll rather prefer CDSL than BSE.

            Btw, any trades in grey market? Ifyes, pls update the premiums.

          • bullishbear, did you see the corrigendum of 2/- face value?? Your calculations will need to change accordingly.

          • You are right RJ17 and I’m very sorry for this mistake. IPO is indeed priced right for my liking. Will apply tomorrow day.

          • No Saurap, BSE looks good for subscription. My earlier comments were based on poor information. I did not pay attention to face value calculations that RJ17 has pointed out.

  1. At 800+, there is no way you can surely make money in bse ipo. It is a lucky draw at best, if the markets are good, you will make some money. But wait, Trump has to say something…

    • Sinhaji, I’m a fan of skepticism but why do you say this. BSE has priced the IPO at PE ratio of 35.8. This is not very high IMO as we had similar priced offers last year and they did well. And let’s not forget, this is BSE afterall!!!

      • Just wait, Trump has come to the white house and there will be many orders he is going to reverse from last govt. Markets have no where to go, am shorting for a reason.

  2. Just checked Karvy site and there is an option of BSE in drop down menu but I get no more details after entering my application number. Anyway, looks allotment will be out today , may be in the evening.

    • Two words for you – don’t buy! I know many people will say bullsinha has been wrong again but BSE at 1000+ is hardly an investment. Think about it, if the business was really that good, why was it offered at 806?? It is all easy money yhat is driving the market. Geopolitics is bad, US policies are bad, international oil prices are bad, budget is not great and markets are making new highs. It is a rave party, just a police raid and everyone will be locked-up metaphorically speaking!!!
