What Is IPO?
In simple terms
What Decides IPO Price?
Demand for the company's share influences price. But factors like industry comparables, growth prospects, and the company's story also play critical roles.
Good Investment Or Not?
Not all offers are equally good. Do your research to learn about the risks involved before investing.
An authentic source is to check stock exchange websites. Some third-party websites also publish IPO calendar containing dates, IPO size and other details.
Early Bird Not An Advantage
It is good to bet your money after you get some clarity on the offer. Sometimes an IPO can be overhyped but fail to generate a satisfactory return on investment.
Check IPO status
IPO registrar publishes allotment status on their website after finalisation of the allotment process. Stock exchanges and DP's websites also post the same list.
In Case Of Oversubscription
The company can offer more shares to meet the demand or raise the price. It means the company can raise more capital comfortably.
Improve Your Chances
Avoid large application. Submit multiple applications with different PAN numbers. Appy with correct details to avoid disqualification.
What's Listing Gain?
You can sell IPO shares on the day of listing to get 'listing gain'. It happens when IPO shares debut at a higher price than IPO cost.
