Astec 1 Yr price target: Rs. 50-55


103. Ravi, Bangalore  Dec 2, 2009 3:15:56 PM IST |   Reply  |  Ravi, Bangalore's messages

Astec Lifescience 90- Target 88-91 zone, 94-95 zone. Stop-loss 82.9. Buy in 91-88 range.

Fundamentally over-valued. Hence, stop-loss is important.


102. NAGESH K S  Nov 26, 2009 2:05:24 PM IST |   Reply  |  NAGESH K S's messages

All Life Sciens stocks trading at high p/e this will all outperforma the market in the near future.


101. Ravi, Bangalore  Nov 25, 2009 2:27:47 PM IST |   Reply  |  Ravi, Bangalore's messages

As it is small issue size IPO, it is defying gravitation power. At least in near-term, fundamental won't catch up.

It is moving on technical factors (demand & supply). Keep stop-loss & gamble. Playing without stop-loss is like drving without brake.


100. Rama  Nov 25, 2009 1:59:11 PM IST |   Reply  |  Rama's messages

My final advice: Sell astec... This stock is not for investment...


99. Ravi, Bangalore  Nov 25, 2009 1:01:17 PM IST |   Reply  |  Ravi, Bangalore's messages

Modify intra-day stop-loss to 86.5 as it has tested 86.8 thrice since morning.


98. Ravi, Bangalore  Nov 25, 2009 12:57:18 PM IST |   Reply  |  Ravi, Bangalore's messages

Astec 87.2- Above 87.2, break-out. Target 88, 89, 89.5 Stop-loss 86.9 (Intra-day)


97. Astec  Nov 25, 2009 9:51:52 AM IST |   Reply  |  Astec's messages

Astec will list @ 73


96. Rama  Nov 25, 2009 9:46:56 AM IST |   Reply  |  Rama's messages

There is no value for shares API manufacturers. Uncertain business.
If you can take some risk and want to ride some operator action, then you can hold for 2-3 days(See whether this follows thinksoft trend).
Discl: I dont have astec shares.


95. prakash ipo & kings  Nov 24, 2009 8:53:31 PM IST |   Reply  |  prakash ipo & kings's messages

It may list Rs.88 to Rs.90.

then further its trend will be up side.

H A P P Y - L I S T I N G .


94. rama  Nov 24, 2009 3:41:34 PM IST |   Reply  |  rama's messages

Astec may give Rs. 1 listing gain. Adviced to sell above 84/. buy below 50/


93. Ravi, Bangalore  Nov 24, 2009 2:15:10 PM IST |   Reply  |  Ravi, Bangalore's messages

92. Rama,

Cheap stocks becomes more cheap and expensive stocks become further expensive.

Just because you pick-up value stocks, it does not guarantee safety. Stock market, by its nature itself is risky whether you buy value stocks or growth stocks. At investors cash comfortable level, stop-loss is required.


92. Rama  Nov 24, 2009 9:43:37 AM IST |   Reply  |  Rama's messages

To 89. Ravi,
You are correct. But it is not my job to suggest when DLF etc stocks makes new highs. Because I dont invest based on their ability ot make new highs. I invests if a stock is available at reasonable PE. Some stocks may trade at high PE(since stocks valued with p/book, PEG, EV/mCap etc). But when more more stocks list from the same sector, people go for PE comparison... otr atleast that is what I do.... I may miss some good growth stocks, but in bad times my loss also limited!!!! from my investing strategy I will remain breakeven till sensex level of 11800. So that is fine with me and is suitable for my risk profile

PRICE: 82/- Rs.

88. Rama

Investment in stock market by nature itself is risky. However, what deterrs is huge volatility. Scam tainted / Operators stock lose 90% or more.

If any fundamental value is there & SEBI is alert (Exchanges are equipped with functional stock watch systems), it can prevent such volatility.

SEBI can restict block money flowing to market (SEBI / RBI have experitse & tools to verify fund-flow).

'A' Group companies falling more than 75% is a failure of regulator.

Investors also should be vary. Investors should not apply to high PE multiple IPOs. They should not chase stocks at high PE multiple in secondary market. To manage market risk, stop-loss is necesssary.

Eg: Had any investor not put stop-loss, it is tough to imagine when Satyam would hit new high! Even can you tell when frontline stocks like DLF, Unitech would cross their respective new highs? Even long-term investors lose money.


88. rupesh bharatwala  Nov 23, 2009 4:17:54 PM IST |   Reply  |  rupesh bharatwala's messages

can any one tell me about listing date of astec life science ltd


87. Rama  Nov 23, 2009 4:15:36 PM IST |   Reply  |  Rama's messages

To Ravi, 87:
Eventhough your points looks reasonable, it is difficult to practise. SEBI cannot watch each script everyday. that is why A, B, Z, T etc stock catogories aree there, also associated circuit filters. Investors has to take due care before trading. Because stock market is part of free capital market. So risk will always be very high. No risk..means one have to go for bank fixed deposits.
After reading your views it appears that after IPO, share price should not go below issue price or shouldnot go above issue price!!!!


86. rama  Nov 21, 2009 9:53:22 AM IST |   Reply  |  rama's messages

Chithorgarh staff should remove mesages like No 86, which is simply waste of time. Nobody snatched money from us. It is WE who have taken risk and applied for IPO's like NHPC. Nobody else can be blame for that....
To Chithorgarh staff.....
