  1. Good info on this page. I heard price will be 247-252 so PE will be 36.8. Little bit on the higher side!

    ADAG group company so ppl will instantly remember Reliance Power but I think it is among the better businesses in the group.

  2. Anil Ambani Reliance companies are being considered as ‘panvati’ by most dealers — I checked with 5 different ones, 3 banks and 4 of the biggest brokerage houses — due to the quickness with which that group spins off stock and causes mergers/de-mergers… They therefore avoid it like plague! Which is why Reliance Housing Finance is also being punished and seems to be struggling to find a bottom despite Reliance Capital spinning off the lucrative Housing Finance business, as a result even Rel Cap is suffering! RHFL was supposed to list at 115-120 but within a month has dropped to the 70’s and expected to go down further… So with that in mind don’t be surprised if this company also fails to do well, especially with the glut of insurance companies hitting the market the last few days and many options for the common investors to choose from!

  3. Everyone I meet says, ‘Anil bhai ki company hai, isme na pado to hi accha hai’ 😀 . I am avoiding in spite of our family being a big subscriber of many Funds of Reliance Mutual Fund

  4. I like this company even though it is ADAG group company. Make no mistake, HNIs wouldn’t be rushing if it was a bad business and let’s not forget poor sentiment due to Anil ambani. Despite all this, the ipo was fully subscribed in a minute.

    Allotment will be difficult and my money is locked in GIC so will make a small application.

    • This really good analysis. We must chase business. Mutual fund industry is booming since last two years and will continue to do so. So keeping in mind future prospects, it is definitely subscribe

  5. Issue was a subscribe, no matter whether its Anil Ambani’s Company or Mukeshs’. Its the sector that matters here not the Promoter. I feel sorry for some friends here who are posting ridiculous comments with out even knowing the fundamental of the comapny

  6. When we investing in any company as a fundamental first look for Management. ADAG group have worst management company. Retail investor never make money in this group. (Rcom (110 to 17 Rs. last 3 yr. ), R-power (108 to 40 Rs. last 3 yr. ), RInfra (800 to 453 Rs. last 3 yr. ),Rel-home (114 to 83 (in 2 month) ) despite market is at all time high. R-power IPO still in mind of retail investor, which eroded hard earn money in 2008 (in 2008 it is ruling at 250Rs. and now at 40 Rs.). Even worst & small company gives return to investor in last 3 year but ADAD group company eroded investors money how can we rely on this group.

    Object of issue also on not give conviction, they demanding for inorganic growth, meeting expenses, advertising and upgrade IT system. Though company financial shows it is cash rich company then why not they utilize that fund for above general object.

    That’s why many comment against ADAG group. It is our own decision apply or not.

  7. this ipo is managed, how is it possible that such a big ipo is allotted in few minutes on first day morning

    I think, only focus on listing gains for those applied

  8. Eagle Eye Network Whats-app Group is active now. Contact on Whats- App number 9122-182-978. Only few seats left.




  9. Anil chor ka issue aa gaya hai ye market ko bhi le dubega why SEBI is allowing this thief to be in the market whosoever has invested in Rel Naval Defence he too is doomed. But our chor bhai will not be bothered.

  10. Weather its ADAG or Mukesh Ambani Group. They are been look after and monitor by SEBI. Those days were gone when any XYZ can float IPO can run away with small investor hard earn savings. In fact I am holding so many Scrips since last 20 years and many of them has been d-listed in Stock Exchange and many are smart in making fool to small investors by getting it merge with other Cos and enjoying good times. Thus, it my suggestion to all my friends please always see the strength and promoters of any Co before you invest money.

  11. Big investors like Rakesh Jhunjhunwala and some other big names have placed huge bids in this IPO. This is likely to open above 400 and lets see how far it goes

  12. This Business (Mutual Funds) is an emerging business and witnessing huge growth in recent times. This is the first mutual funds company to get listed.
