CSB Bank IPO Review

Based on financial data, the issue is aggressively priced. We have witnessed well managed grey market operation even before the official price band announcements by vested interest. This may lure listing gainers/short term investors to opt for this issue. All its peers are trading at much lower P/Es currently. Aggressive IPO pricing already discounts all near term positive factors. The banking sector is on the crossroads and witnessing no fancy. Considering all these factors, cash surplus risk savvy investors may consider investment at their own risk. Read detail review...
