On the heels of Zomato, Burger King, and Mrs Bectors comes the Devyani International IPO. This company runs the KFC and Pizza Hut chains across the country. It has other restaurant chains too, but the bulk of its revenues come from these two. Devyani International is aiming to raise approximately Rs 1,838 crore through its IPO.
Speculation must be like seasoning on a dish – a little bit goes a long way, and the sure fire way to ruin the taste for it, is to overdo it. What is speculation? Before I defend my opinion, let me clarify what I mean by speculation. To me, speculating on investments should be a combination of these things: It should be short-term oriented. By short-term I mean, anything where you can see the results within 6 months. Investing in a micro-cap fund as part of your MF portfolio is not speculative in my mind. But betting on a stock to go up (or down) in a time-frame of 3-6 months would be speculative.
