    • are yar bahut irritating ho tum
      agar kisi ko kholna hga acnt to contac kar lega and aise jagh kholega jis company ka koi reputation ho tumhara tradeswift to nam v nhi suna ha
      zerodha is best as of now with no delivery brokerage.

  2. It will be a hit below 450 but didfficult to say if priced above. kostak has gone up in last week. Pricing to be announced this week for sure.

  3. Why some equity shares are not shown in the demat balance but shown in portfolio.How i can sell these shares.I have hdfc sec demat acct.Thanks

  4. Very high pricing at 660 – 670, it will be a flop. there is no money for small investors in S Chand. AVOID AVOID AVOID

  5. “We believe they will continue to do better in the years, however at the current price of 670 it is available at a diluted P/E of 49, which we feel is aggressively priced, hence we do not strongly recommend to invest in the IPO.”

    This is what Sushil Finance has to say. After the IPO the pe ratio is going increase to 49. It’s real price is 450 so there will be big losses to investors who get allotment


  6. I am wondering if it is time to buy Navneet since gmp and kostak in S Chand is still high after announcement of price band. Motilal Oswal has a target of 210 on Navneet. I’ll sell S Chand application and buy Navneet. We may have another DMart situation – a tide lifting all boats!

  7. Anchor allocation done. Nomura, HDFC, HSBC, BNP Paribas, SBI Life Insurance have led anchor portion. Good quality!!

  8. Come on guys, it is not that bad. I think the negativity is around nine month results. What if the company manages to surprise in the final quarter and remember, Chhaya’s figures are not included in S Chand’s results as of now.

    Why are so many brokers suggesting SUBSCRIBE if it is not good?

  9. Allotment is still not out and Viral Shah said he got allotment yesterday. Stop spreading false information. I think we will get to know today.

  10. Linkintime is most pathetic in organizing things. Drop down doesn’t even have S Chand name appearing there. And they haven’t even taken out Avenue Supermart from drop down. That itself shows how bad their management is

  11. HEY GUYS

  12. Flop IPO and trading below the allotment price. Where are all the guys talking about guranteed listing 800+???

    bull_sinha, you were absolutely right about S Chand. I should have taken your advise.
