  1. Good company, has something in REAL business. In fact, one of its kind, who else sells home improvement and building products? PE ratio of 24.3 is not very high too.

  2. My analysis says 85% of ipo gives a minimum of 10 % returns onthe listing day (2015-17). So surely IPOs are good to invest. Min 10% of return in 15 days seems good… Conditions apply.

  3. Dear Sir,
    Please furnish equity capital of the companies before and after the proposed public issues invariably.
    Thanks &Regards,
