Due to low subscription of NIA issue, this stock might plunge under 800.

During NIA listing , it may cross 850... come out..... people commenting on attractive book value. but if you compare the re insurance companies globally, GIC is at high book value and not so attractive. for long term insurance companies are best bet than re insurance companies. one major calamity can bankrupt the company. that is why re insurance companies are near to it''s book value.

today close will be around 860-880

It seems to have a support level around 820. Its bounced back today and is at 828 now. If it goes to 835+, I will sell 1 lot of 224 out of 3 that I hold.

After observing NEW INDIA ASSURANCE subscription figure, GIC RE''s credit score is improved in investors heart. 0 times/0% employee had applied in New India where as in GIC RE it was 1times/100%.

GIC holding firm at 842 to 848...under 850
1465. yazoo  Nov 2, 2017 10:51
Learn your lessons from GIC Govt bid more that a billion $ or 8000cr for GIC and a billion $ or 6.5 crore on NIC using LIC small investor Money to entrap even more small investors ..

Those that entered under Rs 800 on 25 oct could have exited and entered at least twice and made a killing .. someone with insider info must have !!
