it will not drift to Rs90.but will bounce before that

may slip a bit and then spike upwards after weaker hands exit.

Many operators are in DQ Entertainment, so I suggest to hold it for smart gains. I feel Rs.140 may be seen in this share.
698. anil |   Link |Apr 10, 2010 7:11:30 PM
exit from DQ entertainment because it will trade below 90 in a week, and make position in persistent for one-two months perspective it will touch 550-650 and fundamantely it is very good script and very low equity in the market ( only 54 Laks shares ) . Hence strong recommednation for persistent only BUY at any level .

Any Targets for this stock?

Can Anybody Please Explain this?
DQ Ent. At the upper band of Rs80, the market capitalisation post issue for DQE would stand at Rs634cr, which equates to rich valuations - P/E of 20.3x.

But If we seeing Earning which is 16.5 Crores n No. of Shares issued is 1.6 Crores. So E/S comes out to be almost 10. Hence P/E becomes 8...
But all the research companies r making it 20x. Can anyone clarify me on this?

I did not intend any offence. I was expressing my view, that for retail investors, for new listings, trading based on technical analysis does not offer superior returns. Personally, do not intend to act on or against your advice. I’d rather act on value based approach, that may be same or different from your charting.
ACC during HSM bull run was at high PE ratio and high PEG ratio so not a good choice for a fundamentals driven value investor. KK Singh of Rolta is known to enter into transactions favouring his family’s privately held companies over publicly held Rolta, and at highs Rolta or realty companies did not represent value either, and Satyam – the whole balance sheet was cooked so insider trading was the only way to profit! According to principles of value investing one should invest in companies with low PE ratio compared to peers, however in case of high growth companies, the PE tends to be high but the PEG ratio should be below 0.8. The management of the company should be good to work the asset base well so ROA should be > 10% at least and ROE > 10% and EPS should be growing EPSG > 14% [a lot of good fundaments stocks that are going nowhere lack this growth] after this quick check look for a decent market capitalization and good average traded value, check for any negative announcements or adverse news and temper this with a dash of very basic charting like a golden cross over 20EMA, and you have the recipe for a winning portfolio. Review after every reporting season if the fundamentals are still strong, this is like a stop loss; and book profits when price catches up with value. With indices at 2 year highs this is a good time to spring clean your portfolio.
I work for what is called a FII, designing programs for ALGO trading, which relies on super fast computers doing analysis and executing trades in microseconds from premises located close to the stock exchange for lowest possible latency with miniscule transaction costs. These kind of overwhelming advantages cannot be beaten by retail investors trading in newly listed stock, in what is almost a zero sum game. So as a person who knows the workings, I was proposing the value proposition to the retail audience of this group. Too many buy/sell indicators generated will just make your broker, DP and taxman richer, and distract you from concentrating on your business or profession.

691 Sreedhar,
There is no such rule from May 1st. The only rule is that QIBs now have to pay 100% amount for subscribing to the IPOs , earlier it was 10%.
691. sreedhar |   Link |Apr 2, 2010 10:41:11 PM
Thank you Natarajan.From May 1 Onwards SEBI rule regarding non disclosure of subscription numbers of FIIs & HNIs will be a great advantage to retail Investor who can discern the quality of the Issue.This will result in low HNI & retail subscription levels even if the quality is good & hence more profit.More allotment more profit even if percentage of listing gains is less.

People should understand that technical analysis is not perfect science. There is stop-loss given.

Even value-investing fails many times. Most common problem with value investment is their portfolio underperforms broad-market.

1. I have not given my opinion on DQ Entertainment.
2. There is always stop-loss. If you gain make Rs.15, or loose Rs.6.

684 sreedhar congrats on your excellent call on nmdc where i stayed away.i hv not sold any share of dq n ilfs as i think they are niche stories with good management n hv all the ingredients of core portfolio stocks as huge growth is there in both the sectors.

generally if there is growth in sector n promoters r good i keep holding on n as such i am still holding on to cox n kings,oil,jubilant foodworks,db corp,infinite.similarly i hv been hodling on to tcs n icici bank since 2004 n 05.

whats your take on persistent n inrasoft where i hv applied n also nhpc where i am badly stuck since ipo.

for db corp their foray in bihar jharkhand cud be avery romising move.keep watching

Friends,do not be despondent about the listing of DQE & ILFS.DQE HNI Oversubscription(270 times) worked against it .I had feared the same & sold all my shares at opening itself as GMP was good as I thought wait & watch policy was necessary,Shares needed to trade above 165(breakeven price of HNI) to give good gains .Once all the selling is soaked DQE will shoot up.I was surprised by poor listing of ILFS.I bought some shares of both today at market opening & thinking of holding the same.NMDC I gained max profit as I enquired with Karvy about allotment & sold shares at hefty gains.
