    Market wizard : shall i book profits of listing gains or hold it for long term ?

    Applied for 7 lots but hasn’t got any lot.. What is the logic behind it..?? @market wizard

      I had applied only for 1 lot since issue was already oversubscribed. I applied through ICICI direct. does the broker through which we apply have anything to do with the allotment process?

      Mee too,, applied for 5 lots,, 0 allotment!!!! dont know how come my luck so bad!!

    As per sources, Ramesh damani has invested close to 180 Cr in Metropolis.

    Guys how many have applied in Metropolis??

    There is a news in the market that Ramesh Damani has done investment in Metropolis and many big HNIs from Mumbai have participated.

    Good listing Expected.

    Superb response from QIB. IPO is oversubscribed and we can expect 8-10% listing gain from the above hopefully.

    but still overall 100% didnot cross..can we expect still listing gain today is last date.

    I want to go with 1 lot..what is your suggestion market wizard?

    It’s seems QIB has good response for metropolis ipo. We expect 7-8% listing gain. What is Ur view MW?

    I seen that links of screenshot are removed by someone and comments has been edited also some comments are removed that people want to see

      All the junk data which is irrelevant including screenshots etc get removed. Comments are edited if they have any errors. Idea is to keep IZ forums clean, to-the-point and spam free!

    Investorzone. They have set up auto refresh facility.

    can anyone tell me on which site this type of live subscription is available that works without refresh the page

    During the nine months period ended December 31, 2018, they conducted approximately 12.3 million tests from approximately 6.6 million patient visits as compared to approximately 16.0 million tests from approximately 7.7 million patient visits during the financial year 2018.

    According to Frost & Sullivan, the Indian diagnostics market was valued at approximately ₹ 596 billion in the financial year 2018, and is projected to grow to approximately ₹ 802 billion by financial year 2020, driven by favorable changes in demographics, improvements in health awareness, increased spend on preventive care and wellness, increase in medical tourists, increase in lifestyle-related ailments and rising penetration of insurance in India. While the diagnostics industry is largely unorganized, increased brand awareness among patients and customers, increased penetration of specialized tests, and a diverse and large test menu at organized providers provide an opportunity for faster consolidation in the diagnostics industry.

    The peer is Dr. Lal Path Lab. Lal Path Lab has a revenue of close to 1000 Cr in FY18 and Profit of 172 Cr.

    Metropolis Healthcare has a Revenue of close to 550 Cr in FY18 and a profit of 110 Cr.

    The Dr. lal Path lab has a Mcap of 8600 Cr at CMP of 1037 and currently trading at P/E of 50.

    So if we give the same valuation to Metropolis, the Price comes out to be 1000.

    The offered price is 880 on the higher band.

    So listing gain of 5-10% should be there in this IPO.
