Mon, 19 Mar 11:30 am | Monish Vora, TM Team

To know our view on this IPO, you can read our IPO note on Sandhar Technologies Ltd (requires subscription).

Speaking of IPOs, the demand for IPO's has reached sky-high levels. Avenue Supermarts was seen as the first company last year to cross the 100-time subscription mark swiftly followed by CDSL and Dixon technologies, among others.

IPO Subscription Times (2017)

This euphoria is something similar to what was seen in 2007-08. When everyone around you is clamoring to get a piece of the IPO pie, it makes sitting tight difficult. And, why should you sit tight when stocks like Avenue Supermart lets you pocket a cool 100% gain from day 1 of the listing?

History suggests that these cases are few and far between. More than 70% of the IPOs listed in 2007 and 2008 are in the red, even today when the Sensex is at an all-time high.

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 than not.

In the news from the pharma sector, Shilpa Medicare share price is witnessing buying interest today. Gains are seen as the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) issued an Establishment Inspection Report (EIR) for the company's formulations manufacturing facility (SEZ unit) located at Jadcherla, Telangana.

The company said that the facility was inspected between November 11 and November 30, 2017 and USFDA determined that the inspection classification of this facility is VAI and accordingly issued EIR.

At the time of writing Shilpa Medicare share price was trading up by around 13% on the BSE.
