I don't get inside information about grey market, subscription etc. Even for research also, other than referrring few brokerage reports, RHP etc. I don't have motivation to go further.

I will be having positions in secondary market & commodity market. Hence, other than basic research, I don't go for in-depath analysis for IPOs. Secondary market & particularly commodity fetches more return than recent IPOs. It is not 2005-07 kind of IPO marekt. IPOs are leaving little on table. Recent IPOs does not deserve too much time & energy.

People make profit in recent IPOs because of inside information or in-depth analysis. Average investors loose even in IPOs. Generally, people apply for almost all IPOs, but they don't do basic research & out of 10 IPOs, they loose in 5 & gain in 5. At the end, they make hole to their pockets.

It is not my post. Kindly use your original name.

If your friends take any decision based on your false information, are you happy? Do you get any benefit?

Dear Sreedhar,
When you are in doubt about the subscription as in Hindustan Media, you can give as many applications as you can in time. Then if you feel like withdrawing the application, you can either give stop payment for the cheques or take some money using ATM card so as to bounce the cheques. For both the bank will charge (or fine) only less.

7 lots means 7 appications?How could you put some many applications in such a short time.I had time only for 2 application.The clock was striking 455 pm when I finished my second application.I bought back 400 shares which I sold at 189 at the same price & hoping for some pop tomorrow so that I can get out of HMVL at decent price.

Miss Nisha,
You are new to the board & don't even try to put any aspersions on my comment.Use decent language,Motabhai had asked the same question but he had wondered how it was possible.There is no need for me to fool any body,you are the fool who does not know even the basics of IPO Investing.I had applied for shares worth Rs 99600 as maximum a retail investor can apply for is 1 lakh.I applied at 166 since that was the price at which maximum bids were put.I wanted 166 price only & did not apply at cutoff since I did not want the shares at 175 if the price was decided at that rate.Please read the post at 1600 hrs on Issue closing date wherein I clearly mentioned IPO price will be decided at 166,Issue will be subscribed 5.5 overall & Grey market price (which was at discount) will go to premium.

I believe Sreedhar was correct as he could have applied 600 shares at Rs 166 per application.
261. Ravi, Bangalore |   Link |Jul 21, 2010 1:07:14 PM
I did not apply. But planning to short at 192, 198 & 207 in 3 instalments for a target of 185 x 600 shares.

Stop-loss cannot be given at this time as it will be decided on-line.
260. ipo ruler |   Link |Jul 21, 2010 12:41:24 PM
You can put 3 bids in a ipo. For example, You can put one at 162 other at 166 and 3rd at 175.You have to pay the highest amount of these bids in cheque. If issue price is 172 third bid will be considered and so on.

In this issue, i also got 600 shares as i have put only one bid at 166 as i dont require shares if it is issued above that price.

259. nisha |   Link |Jul 21, 2010 11:40:50 AM

if everyone bid at cut off got 560 shares, how do u know that it will be decided at 166. if u bid at c/o then u cant bid for 600 shs.

258. MOTABHAI |   Link |Jul 21, 2010 11:04:03 AM

How could you b allotted 600 shares each for ur two full applications when every body else got 560 for full app.
