‌Will current negative sentiments in the market have an impact on this IPO! – an ANALYSIS

There are two types of risk attached,

Firstly, whether the IPO would be fully subscribed or there would be an under subscription!

This is supported by the fact that the SBI CARD IPO is one of its kind and has aroused a lot of interest among the investors.

Further, the IPO is trading at a premium despite the fall in the secondary market.

SBI card was trading at a premium of Rs 250 – Rs 280 per share before the price band was announced. Post the announcement of the price band, the premium has surged between Rs 325-Rs 350, hence showing that it’s demand has remained strong and thus mitigates the risk of under subscription.

Secondly, there is a risk whether the listing gains would arise as expected since Indian equity markets has been under pressure ever since coronavirus has hit Dalal Street.

The index has come down by 3000 points eroding equity investors’ wealth.

This may marginally affect the listing gains from the IPO.

However, strong fundamentals of SBI CARD backed by strong financial performance, robust operations, and strong parent linkage minimizes this risk though one has to keep an eye on further developments in the coming week.
