Karda Construction Ltd IPO Review:
In this week three heavyweight initial public offerings are on the primary markets: (1) Bharat Dynamics IPO, (2) Bandhan Bank IPO and (3) Hindustan Aeronautics IPO. But still, KCL has an excellent financial report. The profit graph has risen evenly and steadily over the years.
The earnings per share are 6.65 as per the financial year 2017 and the price to earnings ratio is 20. The PE ratio is in line considering the peer companies like Kolte Patil and Arihant Super. The GMP is quoting above Rs. 15 to Rs. 20 above the issue price. Our Karda Construction Ltd IPO Review has a POSITIVE view of this new issue for long-term investors. However, short-term traders looking for quick listing gains must check the institutional activity on this issue on the last day of application.
