  1. Suresh ji, thank u very much for detailed analysis in every report you make. I have one small query in this report you made…normally such a low profit margin IPO you used to mention saying for avoiding only most of times…here what is the difference point which makes you go the other way….I am not questioning ur approach …only want me to learn better from you as a regular follower of you.

    1. Hello Swaminathan, They are into FMCG business and such margins would be very low (they buy, sell and invest again multiple times during the year). Yes, I did not specifically highlighted that in IPOs lime Dmart etc.,. Would indicate one comment in IPOs going forward wherever it is applicable.
