The latest KIMS GMP, Grey market premium price (GMP) for Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) IPO’s were seen up by more than 21-24% and were trading around Rs.990-1000 as of today, This means people are expecting it to open on listing day to be at least at Rs.900 or more.

Having said that, I would like to add here that many people underestimated Stovekraft IPO before it’s launch, however the share price made a high of Rs.545 above the pre-open IPO price band of Rs.384.

Likewise for HFFC (Home first finance) IPO, the GMP before launch was at about Rs.650 however the stock got listed at Rs.540 on the other hand for IRFC IPO many people recommended a BUY and GMP were also seen at quite high range but unfortunately it open at a discount price and is currently trading at Rs.25.10. 

GMP does not mean in anyway a recommendation for an IPO, the financials of a company and its future prospectus tells a lot.

Important Things To Keep In Mind Before Applying For IPO’s:

  • Try to fill for the same IPO online from different DP ID i.e. if in your family have more than 1 account you can possibly get the allocation done in case of over subscription.
  • You should have a good knowledge of the sector and the company you are planning to invest.
  • Analysis of the company’s balance sheet is very crucial. A clear understanding of the company’s future projects and vision is very necessary to know whether it will have a sustainable future.
  • Investment decision has to be taken carefully and not in a hurry.
  • Read as much as you can about the company, its objectives for launching the IPO, its past history in business and its futures prospectus.
  • Don’t go for hype in the news, your analysis should be based on facts rather than gossips and rumors.
  • Many IPOs are oversubscribed. What this means is that the demand for shares is much higher than the shares available for sale. In such a situation, it is no surprise that many investors fail to get any shares allotted to them. This is why it is advisable to apply for IPO shares on the last day of bidding. This way, one can have a good estimate on how large the subscription will be. Also, in that case, one should bid for just one lot and not unnecessarily lock up their capital.
