Recommendation on Angel Broking Limited IPO:

Review and Recommendation of InvestorZone are 3/10. The company has not shown any growth in the last 3 years. The brokerage business is highly competitive. The recent entry of Paytm money in the broking business will further reduce the margins going forward. A lot of litigation and criminal charges pending against the promoters and group companies. ICICI Securities is trading at a P/E of 24x and Angel Broking is asking a P/E of 30x, which does not look fair.
