I wonder how many people put their money into Wockhardt Hospital and Emaar MGF IPOs. Wockhardt has withdrawn its IPO and Emaar had postponed its. Analysts are still blaming the Reliance Power IPO for all this. People don't have money to buy new shares as they all invested in RPO.

Emaar was looking attractive though at the revised prices.

It will open at 600~650. Those of you who have got allotments hold it upto 1 year or more. When the company starts producing power, then sell it. Simple.

I would say that RPO did very well if it lists anywhere above 570. Lets see.

Pardon my ignorance, but I totally disagree with this euphoria about real estate firms. In case of Emar MGF, we are looking at a bubble bursting, IMHO. AFAICT, I cannot recognise both names as related to the real estate business. What prompted them to charge the premiums they were asking for? What was their track record in the real estate business?

MGF, if I recall the acronym correctly, was into automobile finance, and dealership for Tata heavy vehicles. Later on, they started dealerships for Hyundai. In none of their fields, they were market leaders. So, they cannot claim management expertise also. What is their track record in real estate business?

And regarding Wockhardt - I am sorry to say that in spite of their brand value in pharma sector, I really cannot identify their brand in the hospital sector. They may have one or two (or may be even more) hospitals somewhere in India; but I am not aware of them.

The golden rule of investment I follow is - if I cannot identify what product a company makes within 30 seconds hearing its name, I give the shares a wide berth.
