Tega Industries IPO GMP high: How should investors approach?

Given the strong Tega Industries IPO GMP, there are reasons to be positive about the stock after listing. Nevertheless, it is never a bad idea to book partial profits, let’s say in 50% shares on listing. Another approach investors can take is to book profits to the extent that original investment is recovered and is available for reinvestment.

Just a word of caution at this point. Since grey market is totally informal, it is totally possible for these rates and assumptions to change if the markets correct further. In any case, investors can make use of a loss from top to contain damage while maximizing returns.
