In IPO investments, selling on listing day gives the best returns
An analysis of 200 IPOs since 1999 shows 99 stocks had one-year returns that lagged listing day gains, 84 stocks dropped below the IPO share price band
Graphic: Ahmed Raza Khan/Mint
Ami Shah
Mumbai: It may have been prudent to sell most initial public offering (IPO) shares on the listing day rather than holding on to them for longer, a
Mint analysis of the top 200 initial share sales by issue size since 1999 shows.
Data sourced from primary market tracker Prime Database shows 177 of the top 200 IPOs have completed at least a year since their listing. Of these, 99 stocks had one-year returns that lagged behind listing day gains. The year-end price of 84 stocks dropped below the IPO issue price.
To be sure, some of these may have listed at the very end of a bull run or an economic upcycle. Looking at it another way, the one-year returns of 95 stocks trailed those of the benchmark Sensex.
The numbers get worse when two-year and three-year returns are compared with the listing day pop ( see chart). In other words, the frenzy and hype surrounding IPOs more often than not leads to good trading propositions but not investment ideas.
“The big question that investors need to consider is, ‘am I buying at a fair price or not?’” said Nilesh Shah, managing director of Kotak Mahindra Asset Management.
“In India, the mistake that retail as well as institutional investors commit is they start looking at grey market premiums and decide on their investment in the IPO,” added Shah.
The grey market is usually driven by HNIs (high net-worth individuals), who put in bids to subscribe to large chunks of an IPO, far in excess of the portion reserved for them. This pushes up the overall subscription levels for the issue and, in turn, attracts investors to buy shares in the grey market at a premium.
“That market has no scientific way of discovery. It could be rigged very easily as it is an unauthorized market,” Shah said.
Around 12 companies which have filed IPO or follow-on public offer (FPO) documents with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) are awaiting approval. Prominent names include National Stock Exchange of India Ltd, which plans to raise around Rs10,000 crore, and SBI Life Insurance Co. Ltd and the New India Assurance Co. Ltd, which plan to raise around Rs7,000 crore each, showed Prime Database data.
Eleven other companies have filed their IPO/FPO documents and received Sebi’s approval. They collectively plan to raise Rs6,580 crore.
A few were of the opinion that selling on the listing day, was a good strategy in a bull market, and usually led to decent gains.
“People just hold on and have inertia or are greedy not to sell at a time when they can make profits. That is where they lose the opportunity to make good money,” said Prithvi Haldea, founder and chairman of Prime Database. “Then, if the prices go down, they complain of over-pricing.”
“IPOs should not be put on a pedestal and expected to perform well and forever,” he added.
The top IPO by issue size, Coal India Ltd, which raised nearly Rs15,200 crore in 2010, saw a listing day gain of 39.73%. Over one-year, two-year and three-year periods, it posted gains of 33%, 43% and 19.2% gains, respectively, from the issue price.
Over the three-year horizon, the best-performing stock was state-run Union Bank of India, which surged 688%. It was followed by Jubilant FoodWorks Ltd, which gained 683% over the first three years. State-run Canara Bank gained 553%.
Shares of Maruti Udyog Ltd (now known as Maruti Suzuki India Ltd), Bharti Tele-Ventures Ltd (now known as Bharti Airtel Ltd) and National Thermal Power Corp. Ltd (currently known as NTPC Ltd) rose 525%, 385% and 282%, respectively, in the first three years of their listing.

Cochin Shipyard Ltd has completed its landmark IPO which was over-subscribed 75 times attracting more than Rs 1.11 lakh crore, as against the offer size of Rs 1,442 crore, the government said today.

Parts of the IPO proceeds will be utilised for expansion projects of the state-run entity.

CSL, under the shipping ministry, was listed on BSE and NSE on August 11, 2017.

"The company has raised Rs 1,442 crore from the IPO which has been a combination of fresh issue and offer for sale in the ratio of 2:1," the ministry said in a statement.

"The IPO was oversubscribed by over 75 times with more than Rs 1.11 lakh crore being raised against the offer of Rs 1,442 crore," it said.

The issue also saw a strong interest from retail segment with over 20 lakh applications, the highest in the last decade.

The qualified institutional buyers portion was over- subscribed by over 63 times and the HNI portion was over- subscribed by 287 times.

On listing, the stock opened 20 per cent higher despite the markets being low, the statement said, adding that the company had undertaken very detailed roadshows in India, Far East, Europe and US.

"The proceeds of the fresh issue part of the IPO, totalling approximately Rs 961 crores will be used by CSL for part funding two expansion projects costing Rs 2,800 crores," it said.

The projects are – a dry dock at the Cochin Shipyard premises to accommodate bigger ships for building and repair and a ship repair facility in the adjacent Cochin Port Trust premises by setting up of a ship lift and transfer system.

Cochin Shipyard was incorporated in the year 1972 as the first green field shipyard of India. As on date it is the largest public sector shipyard in India in terms of dock capacity.

CSL caters to clients engaged in the Defence sector in India and clients engaged in the commercial sector worldwide for Shipbuilding and Ship Repair. In addition to shipbuilding and ship repair, CSL also offers marine engineering training.

The company has exported around 45 ships to overseas customers and has the pride of building the first Indigenous Aircraft Carrier for the Indian Navy.

The company’s turnover rose to Rs 2,059 crore in 2016-17 from Rs 1,404 crore for the 2012-13. The Profit After Tax for the 2016-17 was Rs 322 crore, while the networth of the company as on March 2017 was Rs 2,031 crore.

In some cases where delivery volume is very low, price gain has really been accompanied by increasing speculative interest from traders rather than genuine buyers. Speculative interest on low delivery volume means that the stock price can fall just as fast as it rose.

A stock that trades on low volume is more exposed to sharp price movements.
