Market Correction Dampens Trading Sentiment, Trades 10-50% Lower

Key Highlights

  • The Nifty50 index was corrected 11% from its record high of 18,604, which it touched on 19 October 2021. Currently, the index has recovered 5% from its recent lows.
  • Experts feel that this correction was legitimate, especially since there was a one-way run continuing longer than 18 months. It made the market expensive in comparison to global peers.
  • Moreover, Omicron’s fears and a growing expectation that the US will hike rates have caused a near reversal in market trends.

There were 65 IPOs in the Indian stock market this year, and 62 have received listing on the various bourses. Unfortunately, many of these stocks that had previously made multi-bagger returns are now trading below their one-time highs. Here are some of the examples of companies that went the IPO way whose stocks are trading below the highs.

  • CarTrade Tech and Suryoday Small Finance Bank

The first two in this list are CarTradeTech and Suryoday Small Finance Bank. Each fell around 50% from their highs. Moreover, both stocks are currently trading at 50% less than their issue price.
