Investing in IPOs: the simple, effective way to buy stocks
Initial Public Offerings (IPO) have clearly been a hit with investors in 2019.
Despite the market volatility during the year, which gave many investors sleepless nights, many IPOs issued during the year put up a spectacular performance on listing and beyond.
Of the 13 IPOs listed in the year, 12are currently trading at between 6% to 175% above their issue prices.
Preferred route to stock investing
Both first time equity investors and veterans have found IPOs to be a simple and convenient way to own a stock.
This route can reduce the stress associated with the timing of the market, which is something that can intimidate new entrants and keep them waiting for a good rate indefinitely.
More interestingly, many have often enjoyed enormous profits when they have sold on listing, making them feel well-rewarded and encouraged.
Best of all, smart research before investing in IPOs of robust stocks, coupled with the patience to hold on to them for a few decades has created immense wealth for many investors.
All that being said, is the IPO party over?
Far from it!
There are many upcoming IPOs, including the Ujjivan Small Finance Bank issue opening on 2ndDecember, 2019.
IPO opportunities waiting to be exploited
So, how can you proceed from here? And which IPOs are worth investing in?
While investors look for quick and juicy returns by selling IPOs on listing, there is a chance that they could list at a discount, only to shine later, or never.
So, like with any other equity investment, before you proceed to invest your hard-earned money in an IPO, it is important for you to check if the company is worth it.
A few important tips can help you take a favourable decision-
1. Get your hands on everything about the company; especially its fundamentals, financial position and past track record. Analyze them well on your own or with the help of your broker, so that you get the benefit of an informed decision.
2. Know why the company is going public. What is the objective for raising funds? Is it to repay some loan, to invest into research or to fund its expansion plan? Analyse the end use keeping in mind the company’s unique situation; so, for instance, if the objective is loan repayment, it might mean that your funds may not be utilized for value addition. Then again, repayment of a loan could make all the difference in a company’s financials, going ahead.
3. Even grey market premiums can be a guiding factor on how the company is likely to fare on listing.
After you have evaluated the IPO successfully, it’s time to invest!
