I support the feature added by admin in the interest of novice investors. I found that experienced members are responding for most of the doubts as far as possible. Problem is that same question in different flavour are being asked and answer for the same could have been obtained by reading some old messages, like SBI card SH quota doubt. Anyway, how a matter is taken vary from person to person. I appreciate the support/help of admin and fellow members.

Well said Mr Yash, 16 lac crore for irrigation. but market is not reacting in that way
474. yashsingal |   Link |Dec 31, 2019 11:23:15 PM
16 lac crores for irrigation and agri projects and also govt is encouraging infra projects, this is sure shot a winner in 1 or 2 years.

Note : just my view, nothing else. I'm invested in this with one lot allotment and added few shares at 150.
474.23. Junglee |   Link |Jan 3, 2020 5:01:03 PM
by these I mean Prince type of stocks
474.24. yashsingal |   Link |Jan 3, 2020 6:36:56 PM
I mostly have quality mid cap stocks and exit them then and there when my target is acheived, coming to prince pipes i applied to this just to check if I'm filling the ASBA application correct and getting the shares into the demat. Now that i got this .. i can be more sure while applying for SBI Cards ipo and other makor ipo's lined up.

We should not waist energy in this counter, this IPO is totally failed, stock may correct another 20-25 points, bounce it's only depending on next company results.
Even they have cleared pledged shares but this is still not debt free company.
In domestic market prince products already facing tough competition from other well known brands.
So expecting too much in long term also will be doughtful.

473.2. Gautam Prakash Mulye |   Link |Jan 3, 2020 3:26:06 PM
Yes Prince is failed.
Promoter credibility and pledge and litigation are severe issues. And Once Green Mkt Mechanism period of 15 days gets over, expect severe selling in Prince Pipes and expect it to slide in two digits.
472. Siva mallam |   Link |Dec 29, 2019 1:43:23 PM
what would be the best strategy tomorrow to minimize my loss , I have 1 lot with me ( assuming it is listing at discount)

1. Should I exit immediately at listing price .
2. Since I have 1 lot should I sell at listing price and buyback at closing price. ( shorting)
3. Should I acquire more, I don't think this is logical at this point .

Kindly guide me
