Forum suggested u to be cautious then also you went ahead and bought this at a very high price (at this stage).

At this stage recommended course of action will depend your investment time horizon and also your liquidity situation. If you need money in short term...keep looking for a reasonable exit e.g. you may get a chance to exit between 385-395 today itself.

While price discovery is still on, volatility will continue and it may even go down upto close to listing price but in mid to long term you should still be able to get a reasonable return even beyond your buying price.

Did anyone notice that there is self censorship in media in my stocks or stocks views regarding discussing Govt Insurance PSUS as if they dont exist ? #AskCNBCTV18 they took questions on hdfc twice in a day but not a squeak about NIACL 658 n GICRE 794 !!

The whole sector sold out due to increasing taxes on Insurance premium in the proposed amendments in the finance bill !! Small investors and lic policyholders in the twins face a devil and deep sea situation as the stocks are tanking daily

Hm...It must be the bad luck most retail investors are born with...I mean the moment a person evolves into an investors to find these cos by a certain promoter cheap and attractive, the streak of bad luck manifests with a sudden policy change as the punitive entity...
Remember RCF and NFL...gas prices were hiked immediately after their OFS...The recent ETF is another example where oil cos were sold even after a policy shift from fossil fuel to electricity....
But then that''s thel kind of amusement the Nation Building excercise creates all the time and even at their own expense, the retail, if they are patriots must participate in it.... right?

While I am also enjoying stellar listing gains of HDFC standard and heaping praise after praise on HDFC brand.....let us not forget another factor which aided its listing price.

The upgrade in India Sovereign rating......
