My investment has become doubled now within 1.5 years. Thank you so much and really appreciate your honest posts keeping in mind of investors interests.

  2. One still needs to wait and watch, how all this plays out. Their customer base is strong but at the same time, it is also concentrated.

  3. Thanks for detailed ipo analysis.
    This is very good ipo and such ipo gets huge over subscriptions. It all depends on luck.

  4. Nice Article Suresh Garu. The PE seems to be little high when compared to BEL.Hope the promoters have good tack record to seek such price of Rs.585 (upper Band).
    Your analysis are very good and exhaustive.
