@ Newrookie After fresh issue of 21 Lakh shares and OFS of 82 Lakh shares if it becomes 53.39 then we can say promoter stake is less.Ideally 65-70% is considered good for investment.

People are wondering why IRFC did not move despite Good Q3 results and dividend

My take
Both factors were priced in. RHP had September 30, 2020 data. It is easy to predict EPS of this company basis asset deployed. Margin is well known. This dividend is like your investment back to you. So in place of book value of 27 you have now invested in book value of 26 with investment of Rs 25.
Please remember dividend are taxable. Your IPO money which was invested in Jan 2021 was not even earning till Dec 31, 2020

I am expecting 26+ weekly closing.
Today Delivery was 55.55% + Block Deal happened @26
Last minute activity clearly indicated institutional buying ( more than 1mn qty traded in 1minute candle) . Keep holding it at least for 2 weeks, you won''t regret....

With significant number of Robinhood investors onboarding IPO bandwagon, first month behavior post listing has changed. Everyone should take that into account and re-adjust their post listing strategy based on their understanding of changed behavior.

One thing is sure requires a re-think.
1184. Konapurkar Aditya |Feb 15, 2021 15:28
Money raised from 750million dollie bonds .

Net profit raises in Q3 to 16% to 2600 crores .

Dividend of 1.05 declared

But still this stock doesn''t move it all it has croosed 26 was 2 times from day of listing. And both the times it was pre open price.

Only God can help to move this stock or may be someone has to approach Elon Musk to tweet hahah .
1183. Konapurkar Aditya |Feb 13, 2021 18:44
I have a question .I have 783 shares . If I buy another 200 shares will I get dividend for 983 or only for 783 only
1182. Konapurkar Aditya |Feb 14, 2021 13:39
Guys what do think the price might go upto tomorow.

I feel if the dividend news was out on 12 th feb it would have impacted the share price as irctc was also going up based on a fake news that all trains would resume from April.

There will still be lot of people. Who would sell it once price reaches 26 . People need to hold. It and ensure that buyers should be more and sellers should be less .
