Should You Invest?

The Index consist of only PSU stocks and the performance of the PSU stocks in the last 5 years is not attractive neither does the future the way Govt. is eating out the reserves by a way of dividend or Buyback to meet their disinvestment target. The CPSE ETFs though we can say is available at an attractive valuation but it has more to do with the under performance of the fund. The CPSE ETFs is a good option for short ( Listing gain) to mid-term and but certainly not a long term bet the way PSUs stocks have underperformed.

    Dear Admin,
    can we track this CPSE ETF subscription ratio like IPO subscription data?
    and today is anchor portion opening, so by the day end can we know how much anchor portion subscribed?

      No such live data is available like IPO. But yes at the end of the day we can able to get the information.

      kindly post that information so we all can get that clear idea for tomorrow.
      thank you.

    Invest 20 lacs in CPSE ETF and short one lot each of ONGC, NTPC, Coal India and Indian Oil in FNO. and make 3% return guaranteed.


    Date: 19-July-2019 Only One Day
    Application Amount:
    Discount Offered by GOI: Up to 3%
    Issue offer: 8000cr+Green Shoe
    CMP: 25.97


      considering that govt holding in IOC Ltd is only 52% and its holding cannot go below 51.5%, these shares would be bought from market and hence there wouldn’t any discount on these shares and hence the actual discount may be close to 2.5%

    Could someone please clarify – can someone make a 20L application to get the discount and exit on listing ? Couple of questions –

    – is part of the issue reserved for retail investors ?
    – if I apply as as HNI investor, is there a lock-in period ?

      I guess 30 percent is reserved for retail.
      There is no lock for any investor. Only anchor investor may have a lock in for 30 days (not sure though)

    What is the source of the information for discount on this ETF ?
    Why do say that IOC will not get any discount and hence the effective discount of 3.2%
