    • CDSL IPO is definitely delayed. SEBI is asking for more disxcolures, i don’t think it will be possible before April

  1. इस साल IPO ने अच्छा पैसा दीया है! यह भी हमे उम्मीद से ज्यादा रिटर्न्स कमाके देगा!.. Go to.. 19 th June..?

  2. Can any body tell me about how to trade in gray market? I have heard about it several times but don’t have any idea about it.

    • You will need a reliable broker to sell your shares in grey market. For example, CDSL kostak is around 500-550, you can sell your application at this rate to broker. if the brker is trustworthy, you will get 500 doesnt matter if shares list below ipo price

  3. Small investor is small because of these reasons. Running after GMP in every IPO to sell on listing. RBL, Advanced Enzymes, Endurance etc have made so much money even after listing. CDSL is a portfolio story, ppl will never understand!!

    • Absolutely ryt, portfolio stock. I’ve applied 7 different lots and wouldn’t sell on listing. This will be my retirement package.

  4. I doubt it will appreciate much after listing. Big listing for sure but who will buy at 30-40 percent premium. Besides the effective dividend yield will not be that attractive.

    • If you check the cut off box then no need to enter your bidding price manually. System takes max price of the bidding is your bid price.
      Ex. CDSL bidding price range is 145-149 and if you check cut off box then your bidding price would be 149/- and you no need to enter manually anything.

      • thanks you , Actually while applying IPO , due to some technical error (soon I click retailer option , a box appeared on cut off section) I was not able to tick cut off box but enter max bid price i.e 149 manually. Will my chances of getting allotment reduces due to this ?

    • I think you must hold – as per previous experience that if Investors received Bumper listing shares then they normally sold out that stock but if you see recently listed IPO of DMart it has given a huge return on their listing- Prince Band- Rs. 299, Listing – Rs. 600/- presently it is Rs. 800+ so choice is yours.
