Note: I have seen some comments on my blog indicating that I reject the majority of SME IPO’s which are coming to public for investments. While on this blog ( I aim to explore best investment options and best saving ideas, I felt it was equally important that I should tell “What are bad investments” too. Investors should not get into a trap and burn their fingers. I welcome any suggestions to improve these SME IPO articles in future.

        1. Thanks. Now I got partner who can even go along with me to book loss in case. Just kidding. Let us wait for some more time to see that we book 50% profit atleast from our purchase price. Today it could be due to market was down.

  4. Hi Suresh, please carry on the good work you are doing. If an IPO is not worthy of investment, you rightly say so and very clearly. In any case I believe most investors should look at how the company performs and then take a call on whether to invest or not. What I like about your analysis is that it is fair & objective. So please keep this up.. it helps followers of your blog (like me) to make informed and wise decisions.
    And don’t take negative comments too seriously. Remember that your motto should be “The greatest good for the largest number”. Many many thanks for your informative & knowledgeable analysis and articles.
