Should you invest in a Brookfield India REIT IPO Public Issue?
Brookfield India Real Estate REIT Public Issue is the third REIT IPO that is coming up for public issue in India. Its revenues are showing consistent growth. However, the company has incurred losses in FY2019. Even in 2020, if we remove extraordinary items, it has incurred loss. With Covid-19 uncertainty, such business might see a slowdown the short term, however, it might pick-up in next few years. Current REIT companies share prices have dropped due to covid-19 uncertainty. Considering these facts, investors can stay away from this IPO. I would not get surprised that even this IPO might get oversubscribed as investors are not worried about fundamentals any more.
