Hold or Sell?

Commenting on premium listing Saurabh Joshi Research Analyst at Marwadi Shares and Finance said “Investors who got allotment should continue holding the stock from medium to long term perspective as company’s products are used in housing, roads and capital goods which is a structural growth story. Also, we are in the middle of a super steel cycle as China who has more than 50% of global steel production capacity has become a net importer of steel indicating huge demand for steel.”

On the contrary market expert, Ambareesh Baliga is of the opinion that investors should book partial profits as the listing was better than expectations. There could be selling pressure on the counter as the cost of acquisitions for HNIs (high networth individuals) is high as it was oversubscribed about 340 times. While the remaining portion could be held for a year.
