I am holding Infy at a higher level.

I think there is still a lot of pain to come for IT cos especially the likes of Infosys.
Thing are currently very unstable and fluid in IT industry .

Service business is all but going down.

And the way this management thing is playing out for Infy, does not look so good.

Retail subscription rate looks lower compared to the recent IPOs. The biggies have also not invested so eagerly till today. Though I am no expert investor, I didn't even give this a shot. Will see tomorrow by mid day and then maybe bid for a lot and sell it at opening.

Its grey market premium was a mere 25, that too couple of days back. I am sure it must have come down now.
I was advised to apply, but only for listing gain. Looking at the GMP, I am not too keen to apply. It may list at 20-25 INR premium, but I will give it a pass. And I advised the same to my circle of friends.

What's the best strategy for selling / flipping IPOs on listing day? My main worry is how to sense high-value range for stock on listing day and sell on proper time. I was thinking of using trailing stoploss and increase stoploss trigger value when stock value goes up. This way if stock comes down after reaching possible high it will not be major loss. Can experts recommend any better way?

Because the market is down by 362/116 BSE/NSE? Most stocks are down today

Any views about Firstsource Solutions Ltd?

It is an outsourcing company currently trading at 37 per share. Also the company has reduced it's debt over 90% in last few years.

How good will be this company for an equity investment? p/e ratio is 9.33.

Experts please refer to the charts and advise.

However, it is better to use marketsmojo /valueresearchonline algorithm as a 'second opinion'. That is, you do your own research and identify a few companies to invest in. But before you invest, you could consult Dr. Mojo.

At least a week to ten days after the IPO day closes. There'll be news on the exact date generally during/after the IPO.

Hi Smartcat,
Can you explain us in brief how do EPS and PE ratio work for layman and how to analyse a company based on above two parameters.
Thanks.
