The latest Grey market premium price (GMP) for Laxmi Organic IPO’s were seen up by more than 81% and were trading around Rs.235 as of today, This means people are expecting it to open on listing day to be at least at Rs.230 or more.
Incase, the market falls on Monday you may see volatility in GMP of Laxmi organic.
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.25.40.
GMP does not mean in anyway a recommendation for an IPO, the financials of a company and its future prospectus tells a lot. Here is the thing no one can tell you whether the IPO will going to make a stellar debut or not, it is you who have to decide based on available information about the company.
Moreover the IPO’s now a days are very hot market every one wants to earn some quick money on listing day itself and there is nothing wrong about it.
Having said that, one must not forget to check the financials and do not fall for any recommendation from anyone, it is you hard earned money, you should decide whether to opt for the IPO or not.
You may watch various YouTube channels or read on different websites about recommendation for stocks and IPO, it is my humble suggestion and request please do not ever fall prey to it. Better than this is to invest in ETF’s?.
Therefore, whenever you are buying IPO make sure the money invested is not the one which you my need it urgently, always use extra money which you may not require in near future, Otherwise stay away completely.
