Go here for more details on this stock.

From the IPO Space...

From the IPO space, the initial public offering (IPO) of microfinance lender Spandana Sphoorty Financial opened for subscription on Monday and was subscribed 6% on the first day of bidding. The portion reserved for qualified institutional buyers was subscribed 19%.

The company plans to raise around Rs 12 billion through the public issue, which consists of a fresh issue of Rs 4 billion and offer for sale of Rs 8 billion by promoters and investors.

The net proceeds from the fresh issue are proposed to be utilised towards augmenting its capital base to meet future capital requirements and general corporate purposes.

Ankit Shah, in his premium newsletter Insider, has shared the detailed note of the IPO. You can read it here.

Meanwhile, Shapoorji Pallonji-led Sterling and Wilson Solar's (SWSL) Rs 31.3 billion IPO will hit the markets yesterday. The IPO comprises entirely of an offer for sale of 40.3 million shares. The issue is priced at Rs 775-780 per share.

SWSL is an end-to-end solar EPC solutions provider and was the world's largest solar EPC solutions provider in 2018 based on annual installations of utility-scale Photo-voltaic (PV) systems of more than 5 megawatt (MW).

The company provides EPC services primarily for utility-scale solar power projects with a focus on project design and engineering. It also provides operations and maintenance (O&M) services.

The company operates in around 26 countries and is the largest solar EPC solutions provider in each of India, Africa and the Middle East.

As of March 31, the company's order book stood at Rs 77.4 billion, which includes letters of intent worth Rs. 39.1 billion for solar power projects for which it has won the bid but has not yet executed definitive.

Speaking of IPOs, the first half of 2019 hasn't seen a lot of activity in the IPO market.

There have been just 8 IPO on the main board, raising as much as Rs 55.1 billion, compared with 24 that raised Rs 309.6 billion in the year earlier period.

Despite lackluster activity in India's primary markets, there have been attractive money-making opportunities for attentive investors.

Ankit Shah recommended applying to the IPO of Polycab India and the more recent IPO of IndiaMART InterMESH.

Both IPOs were subscribed many times over. And both gave handsome double-digit returns on the listing date.

At Equitymaster, we 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.
