Mahindra Holidays and Resorts India Ltd (MHRIL) was listed on NSE today….It was issued at Rs 300 and the Issue was comfortably oversubscribed
A freak trade saw a High of Rs 374.50 and a low was registered of Rs 311.35…but it closed at Rs 313,towards the Day’s Low
12.74 Million shares were traded and the average price was Rs 325.21 creating a turnover of Rs 414.42 crs
I yet hold a view that this price of Rs 300+ will not hold…my reasons have been spelled out when I reviewed in great detail the IPO on this blog on June 22,2009
So it was with some amusement that I viewed Tarun Kataria of HSBC,the IPO’s Underwriter, spelling out on UTVi this morning,his four reasons why MHRIL has done well on listing and is quoting at Rs 325 ,8% to 9% higher than IPO Price of Rs 300 levels…He was justifying the HSBC philosophy of Leaving something on the table for the Investors
Tarun,this margin has already reduced on the first day itself to below 5% if you take closing price of Rs 313 and I fear that we shall soon get MHRIL below issue Price of Rs 300…..in a sense the price will fall off the table !
Let’s take Tarun’s four reasons why he views MHRIL as a success…His view is in Black while my view on his view is in Red if I disagree and in Green if I tend to Agree
