It serves several clients across the globe, but what got me is this...

The stock is leaving all its competitors behind despite the COVID crash, and now the price has already started to move.

There's actually one more reason why this stock could take off and make its early investors rich.

It's revealed here in this note with transparency.

As of the most recent closing prices, the Hang Seng was up 0.2% and the Shanghai Composite stood higher by 1.8%. The Nikkei ended up by 2.2%.

European stock markets opened higher today as French and Italian industry output data rebounded more than expected in May.

The rupee is trading at 75.19 against the US$.

Market participants were tracking Avenue Supermarts share price. Shares of the company declined over 5% today after the company reported an 88% fall in its net profit for the April-June quarter (Q1FY21).

In news from the realty sector, shares of Omaxe were locked in 5% down circuit at Rs 75.85, an 11-year low, despite the company issuing a clarification regarding the recent volatility in the stock price.

The real estate firm's stock was locked in lower circuit for 12th straight trading day today. The stock is trading at its lowest level since July 14, 2009.

Recently, the company had issued a clarification to the exchanges, saying the movement in the share price is purely due to market conditions and based on demand and supply principles.

According to the disclosure made by the company on Friday, July 10, lender Venus India Asset-Finance Private Limited has invoked 160,000 equity shares held by Guild Builders Private Limited, one of the promoters of Omaxe.

As on March 31, 2020, out of total 74.15% or 135.63 million equity shares held by promoters, about 52.32% or 70.97 million equity shares were pledged, the shareholding pattern data shows.

Omaxe, which was scheduled to announce its January-March quarter (Q4FY20) earnings on June 29, has postponed the same by a month.

On June 26, the company had informed the stock exchange that the board of directors of the company are now scheduled to meet on July 29, 2020 to approve the Q4 results.

The board will also consider and recommend dividend on preference shares and equity shares. It will also approve the enabling resolution for shareholder's approval to undertake fund raising activity.

Moving on, in latest developments from the IPO space, after a four-month lull in the IPO market, Rossari Biotech's public issue opened for subscription today.

In the Rs 5 billion IPO, Rossari Biotech has fixed a price band of Rs 423-425 per equity share and the issue will remain open till July 15th.

Rossari Biotech's IPO comprises fresh issuance of shares worth Rs 500 million and sale of 1,05,00,000 equity shares by company's promoters through offer-for-sale route. Post the IPO, the promoter shareholding will fall to 73% from 95% earlier.

Investors can bid in lot sizes of 35 shares. The equity shares will be listed on the NSE and BSE.

The net proceeds from the IPO will be utilised for funding working capital requirements, repaying certain debt availed by the company and for general corporate purposes.

Rossari Biotech is a specialty chemicals manufacturing firm with focus on home and personal care, performance chemicals, textile specialty chemicals and animal health and nutrition products.

At the time of writing, the issue had received bids for 27,58,560 shares, which was 34% of the issue size of 81,73,530 shares.

On Friday, the company raised Rs 1,488.7 million from anchor investors, who included top three fund houses - SBI Mutual Fund, HDFC Mutual Fund and ICICI Prudential Mutual Fund.

Speaking of IPOs, in one of the editions of The 5 Minute WrapUp, Ankit Shah has shared how IPOs offer insights into the mood of the stock markets.

He picked the six most successful IPOs of 2019 and checked the retail investor enthusiasm for them.

Obviously, all these IPOs were oversubscribed across investor categories. But the level of retail investor enthusiasm differed widely, depending on the overall market sentiments.

This can be seen in the chart below:

Are Retail Investors Back in the IPO Game?

Here's what Ankit wrote about it...

  • Clearly, IRCTC witnessed the highest number of bids for the retail category. Factoring in the discount of Rs 10 per share for the retail category, the total bids were worth a whopping Rs 3,242 crore. Over five times the entire IPO size!

    Polycab India and the recent IPO of CSB Bank also received a strong thumbs-up from retail investors.

Does this hint that retail investors are coming back to the markets? It would be interesting to see how this trend pans out in 2020.

We will keep you updated on all the developments from this space. Stay tuned!
