5 IPOs with the Highest Listing Gains in 2021

Jul 6, 2021

Healthy momentum in the secondary market, ample liquidity in the system and greater participation of retail investors are some of the factors keeping the IPO Street abuzz since last year.

As a result, in the financial year 2021, 21 out of 29 initial public offerings (IPOs) generated positive returns for investors on listing.

The IPOs had an average listing return of 36%, the highest in a decade, fuelled by an average oversubscription rate of 71.3 times.

Here are the top 5 IPOs which had the highest listing gains -

#1 Happiest Minds Technologies (111%)

The stock of Happiest Minds Technologies listed at a premium of 111% on the BSE on 17 September 2020 at Rs 351 compared to its issue price of Rs 166.

The combined trading volumes on both exchanges surpassed the total issue size of 42.2 m equity shares. The stock finally closed at Rs 371 at the end of the day.

The hefty premium was on expected lines given the company's strong fundamentals and management led by founder Ashok Soota, who also co-founded Mindtree.

The company also had a stellar IPO subscription figure of 151 times, the eighth highest in a decade.

Happiest Minds is a digital transformation IT consulting & services company that focuses on big data, analytics cloud, mobility and security.

REVEALED: 3 "Super Smallcaps" You Didn't Know About

Should you invest in an IPO for listing gains?

Amid the ongoing IPO fever, people are increasingly looking to try and make quick and appealing returns by putting their money in the shares of a company going public.

The idea here is to make listing gains through the purchase and sale of shares in a public issue.

However, there is no guarantee that a stock will always open at a gain.

This is completely dependent on the demand for the IPO, market sentiment, global factors and short-term outlook, among other things.

Hence, it would be wise to invest in companies with longer horizons.

The companies should have solid fundamentals and good long-term growth prospects.

One must also understand the business of the company along with the risks involved in investing.
