    The company is not reluctant to push Buyback either they will wait another quarter for buyback or most probably SEBI will give permit them to Cancel Buyback as Tax laws have changed.

    Is sasken buyback happening or not ? I have 2 applications for this and this stock is bleeding…any news on buyback ? seems it is cancelled or something

    If I buy today on 4th July, am I eligible to participate in buyback?

    Record Date – Friday, July 5, 2019

    Purpose – To determine the entitlement and names of Equity Shareholders, who are eligible to participate in the proposed offer for Buy-back of up to 20,59,243 (Twenty Lakhs Fifty Nine Thousand Two Hundred Forty Three only) Equity Shares of the Company at the price of Rs.825 per Equity Share

    On Wipro members had commented that record date will be announced on 3rd JUne which company did.So members any idea when is the company going to announce record date?

    SASKEN has reached 704. is it a good price to buy for buyback or it can fall further?any suggestions or views from members?

    Why the price is going down. I bought 30 for 750. should I get out now or keep invested. The probability of price going down is high?

      You should not have bought around 750. Had you read my old messages in this forum I warned all not to buy around 750, but to wait till the price comes around 715-720 to initiate a buy that too in SIP mode as the election is around the corner.

      Nevertheless, this is the share market such things are inevitable. Please Don’t sell in the loss. Keep holding the share, the company has a comfortable valuation at CMP as compared to peers. So need to worry.

      Just enjoy the market without worry!!! The market is more psychological than emotional or excitement.

    Market wizard bhai bse ltd ka buyback update karo. 5 tarikh ko announce hone ja raha he

      Price has appreciated after the announcement. Initial chance of picking it up has been lost. Just wait for the announcement of a record date to enter again of price comes around 720-725.
