  1. Caution to be exercised in this IPO as the price is too high! Business is doing well but company is asking too much for this growth when others are available at better prices. GMP is fine but I’ll rather wait for listing and then buy at a discount.

  2. Chemicals is the hot sector as chinese are facing problems. Lot of growth coming for Indian companies. Go ahead and subscribe.
