Tue, 30 Jan 11:30 am | Monish Vora, TM Team

Speaking of IPOs, the demand for IPO's has reached sky-high levels. This euphoria is something similar to what was seen in 2007-08.

At times like this, it pays to follow a merit-based selection - primarily including valuation, business, and management quality - 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 than not.

Also note that with big ticket IPOs in the limelight in 2017, SMEs have also joined in to get a share of the pie. The recent SME IPO data for 2017 certainly seems to suggest so.

The amount raised by SME IPOs in 2017 stood at 17.85 billion, more than three times the amount raised in 2016. The number of SME IPOs launched also doubled from 66 to 132. This is evident from the chart below:

While it doesn't make sense to completely ignore this space, a certain sense of caution is definitely merited.

From the macroeconomic space, India's economy is expected to grow by 7-7.5% in FY19, according to the Economic Survey 2017-18.

The survey, authored by chief economic adviser in the finance ministry Arvind Subramanian, said the economy is likely to grow at 6.75% in 2017-18 against 6.5% estimated by the Central Statistics Office (CSO).

The Survey said the major risk to India's growth story next fiscal could emanate from rise in crude oil prices in the international market, however, it expressed hope that recovery in investments, global investment, improved global growth outlook and stabilisation of GST will however help pick up the domestic economy.

The Survey also stated that the forthcoming Union Budget 2018 will have its focus on investments over savings and also that the policymakers will have their focus on employment, education, and agriculture.

The survey, on the other hand, also stated that India is headed for some fiscal slippage and could miss the target of 3.2% of GDP.
