  1. It is a good business but 650 will be too high IMO. It will be a PE ~25 and there are many other companies trading at better valuations.

  2. Whatever the price band, it is good to see an IPO after a dull month. Indostar has GMP of nearly 50 and all lending businesses are doing good this year so hope to make money in this one.

  3. I just dont understand why people go for IPO like this when there are so many companies already listed. Just do some research and buy anything. No need to remain at the mercy of allotment and all!

    • 1. Whenever there is an IPO, it gains attention of investors.
      2. People tend to forget and track already listed peer companies.
      3. There are investors who are inclined to invest only in IPO.

  4. EPS growth in the last two years has been at 3%. Very low, given an annualized 30% EPS growth in the two years prior to that. with limited EPS growth, price is at a huge risk of PE contraction. Avoiid. Wait and watch to buy in the secondary market around 500.

  5. It is a dark horse. They don’t have retail busness but they have kept price low which is a good thing. Every other company keeps price high no matter what business. Look at icicidirect it has been a disaster.
    I will apply today. At least the price is reasonable, hopefully Ill not lose money and if the listing is good, that will be great.

  6. My self applied for 7 times and allotted nil in retail category. When subscribed two times in retail category, how it is possible for nil allotment. Any gambling and mode of allotment may be informed.

  7. Good IPO , Listing With Near 850-900, Because of last long time IPO Received and apply by all, and wait for listing as a Premium high
