Metro Brands IPO Review (May apply)

[Dilip Davda]  The company is operating on an asset-light model with the marketing of third-party products. Amidst all odd, it continued to post positive earnings and has set an example. However, the IPO pricing is aggressive based on its financial parameters. Hence cash surplus investors consider it with a long-term perspective. Read detail review...

But RJ is loosing his credence since both his related IPOs Star Insurance and Metro Brands failed in getting any considerable listing pop and are languishing below their IPO issue prices very much on expected lines. I never had any expectations from these stocks. But promoters have got their money and are enjoying Christmas

Apart from RJ investments, STAR HEALTH & METRO are most visible brands in their respective business domains. Only concerns was the apparently higher IPO prices at the current shaky market sentiments. Let the market decide the actual worth of both these shares.

Same like Star health. RJ is the manipulator. It listed on discount, it will move up till it crosses IPO price and then fall. check star health price. Another trap for retailers. if New investors are buying now sell it at IPO price

Those alloted just stick to this company. It is very likely to behave like barbequenation and macrotech developer. Listing may not be great but in few months it can give very good rewards.

No offence to ones who have applied for this IPO. We could have bought on first two days as it is expected to go below issue price after listing.

I have got allotment for GLS, Tarsons Products which are trading below issue price now.

Just thinking of how to get the stocks at reasonable price. Most of the stocks are trading below the issue price after listing, except few. We can skip applying for those IPOs and buy after listing, at cheaper price.

Looking forward to hear from experts.

Not so bad.

But only thing is whether it will hold, or go further deeper.

IF RJ can sell STAR health discounted and even sailed through shares @Rs. 940 then why not Metro brands profit making company @ Rs. 500. So do not put sell order at lowest rate.

Business models are different. Footwear business is overcrowded and not viewed to be potential for huge growth. However, RELAXO continuous to grow.

On the other hand, STAR is big player in their line of business, and market of the view that it has huge potential to become multi bagger over a period of time.

Kaaliya is likely to list between 420 to 430, thereby taking away the net worth @ around Rs. 80 per share, to those who have been allotted with, including me.

इनीशियल पब्लिक ऑफरिंग यानी आईपीओ में निवेश करते हैं तो ये खबर आपके लिए है। दरअसल, रिजर्व बैंक ऑफ इंडिया ने बुधवार को आईपीओ में निवेश के लिए यूनिफाइड पेमेंट इंटरफेस (यूपीआई) लेनदेन की सीमा को बढ़ाकर 5 लाख रुपये कर दिया है। वर्तमान में ये लिमिट 2 लाख रुपये की है। मतलब ये कि अभी आप अधिकतम 2 लाख रुपए तक ही यूपीआई के जरिए आईपीओ में दांव लगा सकते हैं। इसके अलावा आरबीआई रिटेल डायरेक्ट स्कीम के जरिेए सरकारी बॉन्ड्स को खरीदने की यूपीआई लिमिट भी बढ़ा दी गई है।

आईपीओ में UPI की भूमिका: आपको बता दें कि किसी भी आईपीओ में एक लॉट की कीमत 15 हजार रुपए के आसपास रहती है। कोई भी रिटेल निवेशक एक लॉट से ज्यादा आईपीओ पर दांव लगा सकता है। हर कंपनियां रिटेल निवेशकों के लिए अपने आईपीओ का लॉट निर्धारित करती हैं। आईपीओ को बुक करने के बाद यूपीआई के जरिए भी होल्ड होते हैं।

- no funded HNI
- RJ backed star (undersubscribed) gave exit opportunity
- profit-making visible brand
- good FII in anchor book
- most of the grey market operators from Gujarat are not active (Religious aspect)
- Negative listing or say no expectation
only 10% chance of positive surprise but anything can happen
