Power Finance FPO Review / Comments

1213. bangalore king  Jul 15, 2011 1:01:24 AM IST
Highest traded counter on NSE with major breakout.

Bank of America-Merrill Lynch has resumed coverage on Power Finance Corp with a 'buy' and has set a target price of 260 rupees post follow-on offering on better earnings as structurally power financing remains a focused priority for the government. "PFC's valuations remain very attractive and the stock is trading at 15-25 percent discount to its peers Rural Electrification Corp, IDFC despite better risk-profile," the Wall-Street Bank said in a note. It also expects PFC to report a net profit growth of 24 percent in FY12/13 citing loan growth and improving margins.
1212. satyaaa  Jul 1, 2011 8:38:41 PM IST
PFC will touch 300 by September 2011 provided that NIFTY touches 6000 or sensex 20000.

In last 3 days market has fallen by 2.5%,whereas PFC fell about 10%.
1208. ARCHIT SHAH  Jun 17, 2011 12:11:22 PM IST

Can we buy at this level.

please reply.
1207. gundu anna  Jun 12, 2011 5:01:34 PM IST
PFC is going to be a very good investment option from one year perspective.
1206. prashant patwardhan  Jun 1, 2011 4:38:51 PM IST
Auction rate is decided as highest traded rate within settlement period (T+2), that is why it is said, one's pain is going to be broker's delight.
1205. n kumar  Jun 1, 2011 3:49:43 PM IST
Prashant patwardhan,

Thanks for the advice.
Auction completed for the shares i shortsold at 200.67 on 30/11/2011. Apart from that Rs250 is charged for STT. So total i was charged at Rs200.91.They had debited the amount also, but the digital contract sent doesn't contain any information of the trade timings and the highest price of PFC on 30/05/2011 is 200.41 only. i was little curious about the trade timings as from morning to afternoon it was around 199 but they seems to have auctioned after 2.30PM.

If you want a reason why you should be long term on PFC , see this :

have patience.
1203. SOMPRASH  May 31, 2011 7:35:13 PM IST
It is not always necessary to play the IPO game for first day
listing gain or loss. It is a POWERFUL TOOL to earn handsome
money with some longer term view.

It is my 25 years experiance that I am sharing with all of you.

So , please do not under-estimate the " POWER " OF " POWER-FINANCE ".
1202. pakka hindustani  May 30, 2011 5:32:56 PM IST
PFC is nicely consolidating at 200 levels. ready to take off in 1 or 2 days. My target is 210-215. Cheers!!!!
1201. prashant patwardhan  May 30, 2011 4:56:31 PM IST
Mr kumar:: sorry to say you that you have bought shares to compensate your shortsell is futile. Both transactions are independently registered by broker. But just don't panic and watchout for payin instructions and follow it instantly. If not, auction will not be executed, till then. If the market rate increases you will be prone to further losses unnecessarily. It appears that share rate may not run away, still it is advisable to payin as instructed by broker. Initially payin will be asked as MR plus 50% extra, but you will get balance debited to your acount once auction happens. Take care that your bank balance is as much as required on above lines. Don't loose slip over it, there is no penalty as such if you make payin instantly.
1200. Market guru  May 30, 2011 3:11:38 PM IST
Hold on... this will be back to 210+ levels...
1199. n kumar  May 27, 2011 7:24:31 PM IST
Ravi Bangalore,

I kept Sanghvi, Apollo and Jubiliant in my watch list.
As i did a silly mistake with PFC now i hold 1000 shares of PFC which i bought today to compensate yesterdays short sell which will be auctioned on 30th May.

any strategies to comeout with least loss.

There is always a risk in selling shares before they come into your account. Looking at price and volume action from past two days, it is obvious that some investors have already sold their allotted shares. There is a good chance (95%+) that the shares will be credited by today morning. Please check-up once again. However, there is no guarantee that the credit of shares won't be delayed.

Remember what happened with NMDC FPO? People who sold the shares too early (22nd March 2010 and 23rd March 2010) gave short delivery and then had to face auction (26th March 2010 and 29th March 2010). The auction quantities for 26th and 29th were 115883 and 473652 respectively.

The exchanges don't care if the seller has the shares or not. The seller just has to deliver the shares on T+2 day. Sharekhan allows its clients to sell shares that they don't have in their demat account where as ICICIDirect don't allow. Probably, your broker will be able to give delivery because, I have also sold yesterday & I am not facing any problem so far. In the past, I had sold early in EIL FPO.

Rajiv rastogi,

Thanks for the update.
I didn't get mail for the first 500 shares which i shortsold on 25/11/2011. so am i safe with the 500 shares i got from fpo shares. my current dp is showing dpbalance as 500 and netavailablebalance as 1500
1196. rajiv rastogi  May 27, 2011 5:46:35 PM IST
Time to take some rest after having sleepless nights. PFC story ends here, superb tralior but bad bad movie, just like Akshay Kumar's past 5 movies.
1195. rajiv rastogi  May 27, 2011 5:40:53 PM IST
Kumar, you should have number of shares shorted in sharekhan dp by 30th. Since next 2 days do not have settlements cos of saturday and sunday, you will get shares you bought today in dp as earliest by monday night and in higher chances by tuesday morning which means you will be late for providing shares. Instead of buying you should have contacted sharekhan for sorting out. Since its FPO and most people sell in advance thus you see most auctions I'm sure sharekhan would also not able to help you. If it was a case of default in margins or bad buying/selling (bought 100 and sold 110 or vice versa by mistake) sharekhan might have helped you but it's highly impossible your dealer might be having pfc shares. So your buying today was futile and did not helped in cause. Sorry.
1194. rajiv rastogi  May 27, 2011 5:30:31 PM IST
Yes there will be double brokerage payable. As I told if your broker is not able to arrange shares he'll go for auction. He won't pay charges from his pocket. And he'll definitely charge twice as once he sold for you and once he arranged shares by amount payable by you so exhange transfer shares to person who has bought shares that day from you. You are forgetting simple reason of auction. When there is a seller there is a buyer too hence to reconcile shares defaulted your beoker buys shares on your behalf at a penalised rate, exchange transfers it to party who suffered from your neglegence. I stated clearly if you are able to arrange shares you can save brokerage but have to pay auction price but if you couldn't, you'' pay double charges.
