Who has applied to IPO? People say they have applied only after seeing robust listing.

I have not applied looking at fundamentals. However, bought @ 166 & sold at 198 (in line with my expectation). I will have re-look only on Monday.

Even if it goes up, I don't worry. I have got down from the train because I got my station.

its definatly jubliant in making. 20% circuit today in las minutes.

mr. buzz

what is high valn??????????, many people here always talk about high valn/low valn, who the hell we are to decide valn, there is nothing called high/low/fair valn.

no one can decide the valn of any stock.let me know the stock which trades at fair valn????, means that stock will not fall and go up from there????
if jubliant was highly vald at 165/175/205, then what is this 350!!!! if overvald then why it spent so much time here.

i personally dont believe high valn theory although, i believe low valn a bit. but generally i dont talk about the last target of an stock, there is nothing called high valn

I look both technical & fundamental.

I mentioned to buy @ Rs.24 but I asked to ignore that message. Inadvertently, I had given such call & asked to ignore. You better check-up that message again properly. Who is fooling?

When you play technical game, keep stop-loss. You mentioned technicals work for high liquid stocks. Look my yesterday's message. How did it work for operator stock? How it worked for Thinksoft / Goenka?

Your technical analyst may have different system. I have some other system. My goal is to make money. When I play technical game, I keep stop-loss. I don't want to look anything else as I keep stop-loss.

I have given stop-loss. As long as it trades above stop-loss, keep holding & book profits partially when it hits each target.

It seems you don't know basics of trading. Whether fundamentals is there or not you buy with stop-loss. Of course, I have 60% - 70% hit rate. My calls may fail in 30% - 40% case. But when you loose you lose Rs.3 & when you gain, you gain Rs.10.

At the end of the day, profit is important. Not that which stocks you played, whether you bought on fundamentals or technicals.

I have guts to give my recommendation before-hand. Not like few people who boasts of that they bought at x price & sold at y price after market hours. If you know technicals, then you also give before market.

Hereafterwards, you give your calls before-hand or just stop passing comments.

Another trap in the making -

Many people are singing ga ga about this share and its upmovement... But what really worries me is the very high valuation.

Congrats to everyone who is sitting on profit in this counter. The IPO gave about Rs.12000 share to everyone and people made Rs.5000-6000 in this IPO. Based upon valuations, the bravehearts can continue to hold. Wiser people, plz book your profits, atleast partial...

talwalkers @ 180+ !!!!!!!!!

its walking very swiftly, looks like another jubliant in making, keep on holding, or sale if u dont want any risk
228. ipo ipo |May 11, 2010 13:29
R u fundamental guy or technical guy. U mentioned to buy stock at Rs.24 based on fundamental, guessing stock will open at 85rs. and within 24hrs u mentioned to buy stock at 158 to reach +202 based on technical. Have some sense man. Don’t fool ppl in public forum.
How many yrs r u following mkts. Don’t teach me that mkt does not move on fundamental. If there is no fundamental, stock can not remain where they r. sooner or later fundamental do play a part.
Thinksoft: U r such a..le. U want to know why thinksoft moved in particular fashion. Nobody body was buying thinksoft during IPO as it was overpriced. Selling shareholder had no choice but sale it to operator at heavy discount. Operator than played satta game so that he can offload his stocks to general public.
Technical analysis do have a place but can only be applied in large stock such as tata motors where there is wide spread buying and selling and stock moves on fundamental ,sentiment, and then technical. For ex. Tata motors at 180, fundamental were not good. JLR sales were dropped to 40%. They were loosing money. When economy improved they were starting to do well. Sales picked up. Analyst became positive about their future and stock started recovering based on fundamentals.

My Post # 184 is a guess work which I mentioned clearly. My comment is based on fundamentals.

My Post # 220 is based on technical analysis. Technical analysis do not give much important to fundamentals.

At the outset, you don't know much about market. Market does not move on fundamentals alone, technicals also have its place. Otherwise you how can you explain Thinksoft moving so much & falling wildly in such a short time of about three months. Does fundamentals changed so quickly?

Tata Motors could be good sell at 180 but becomes good buy at 400 as sales figures look good & fundamentals start improving. Market works like that. It seems you don't know market well.

If you have half-day history, you can predict for next half-day. Similarly if you have history for one week or one month, you can predict for medium-termMy technical analysis worked well.

Don't think you know everything about technical analysis. There are several ways of analysis & my method is different from others.

You just skip my Post & don't follow. That's it. Or even you can do reverse of my opinion if you don't believe.

ADAG is deviating from core business...all their investments are bad decisions....that is why rel capital is down to 700 fromm 1000...buying Talawalkar shares is one more mistake...
