Recommendation on Aashka Hospitals IPO:

Review and Recommendation of Aashka Hospital IPO from InvestorZone is 3/10 1. The asking valuation at P/E of 70x while the peer such as KMC Speciality is trading at P/E of 50x. So, valuation looks way stretched. 2. It is a SME stock and promoters are selling their stakes. Big negative for the stock. 3. In FY20-21, the company has shown good growth but that is due to pandemic. Otherwise in FY18-19 and FY19-20, there is no growth in the business.
