From the Commodity Space...

In the news from the commodity space, oil fell 1% on Monday after US companies added rigs for the first time this year, a signal that crude output may rise further, but the price is still on course for its strongest gain in the month of January for 14 years.

The ongoing trade dispute between the United States and China looks unlikely to end any time soon and the impact of the dispute on the Chinese economy is increasing.

Market participants also remained focused on developments in Venezuela, where popular opposition leader Juan Guaido called for more public protests and the country's top military envoy to the US defected from the government.

Prices have increased 12% so far in January, the largest increase in percentage terms in the first month since 2005.

From the IPO Space...

In the latest developments from the IPO space, Chalet Hotels will be launching its initial public offering (IPO) today and will close on January 31, 2019, with a price band of Rs 275 - Rs 280 per equity share of face value of Rs 10 each.

Chalet Hotels is an owner, developer and asset manager of high-end hotels in key metro cities in India. Its hotel platform comprises five operating hotels, including a hotel with a co-located serviced residence, located in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, Hyderabad and Bengaluru, representing 2,328 keys, as of 31 March 2018.

The company generally develops its hotels in strategic, high density locations on large land parcels, allowing it to situate a greater number of rooms, as well as provide a wide range of amenities, such as, fine dining and specialty restaurants, large banquet and outdoor spaces.

In 2018, the markets regulator approved 71 IPO proposals as compared to 46 in 2017.

Speaking of IPO's, according to an article in The Economic Times, Indian stock exchanges ranked second globally in terms of IPOs, raising US$ 5.52 billion from 161 offerings till November this year. The US ranked first, raising US$ 60 billion from 261 IPOs.

Here's an excerpt from the article:

  • According to the report, the drop in IPOs could be attributed to reasons such as significant corrections in the stock markets in mid-cap and small-cap stocks.

    Further, the amount of volatility has increased due to uncertainties around global growth compounded by the ongoing US-China trade wars.

    In addition, there are a number of macroeconomic factors which are contributing uncertainties such as liquidity crises among non-bank lenders in India triggered by defaults done by a leading infrastructure finance company IL&FS and currency volatility (depreciation of the rupee), the report added.

With so many IPOs set to hit the markets, we at Equitymaster believe a merit-based selection, primarily including valuation, business, and management quality, is the logical way to go about investing in IPOs.

If it means going against the herd, so be it. And going by recent past, this strategy has been proven to be successful more often.
