  • 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.
