Quarterly review – changes in Prime Funds, our mutual fund recommendations

We are living in strange times. No, I am not talking of Covid-19. Your one-year returns of equity funds (across categories), at an average 31% between January to March 22, 2021, zoomed to an average 69% since March 23, 2021. In other words, 1-year returns suddenly doubled from March 23, 2021. If you recall, March 23 2020 was a market low. So, 1-year returns from March 23, 2021, have started looking abnormally high.

IPO Review : Zomato IPO – Invest or avoid?

If there’s talk in the stock markets today, it’s devoted to the upcoming Zomato IPO, which aims to mop up Rs 9,375 crore. Unlike the crop of recent private equity investor backed companies doing IPOs, this isn’t primarily an offer for sale. Zomato gets a whopping Rs 9,000 crore to deploy into its business mainly through a fresh issue of shares. Only one investor, Info Edge, will offload a Rs 375 crore stake. At the upper end of the price band of Rs 72-76, the post-offer market cap of listed Zomato will be around Rs 60,000 crore.

IPO Review: GR Infraprojects

In a bull market, when fancied sectors command premium valuations, IPOs in that space also come with a stiff asking price. We have seen this in the chemicals space. However, when a sector has been languishing for long and sees pick up only in pockets, will an IPO from such a sector leave money on the table?

Stock Recommendation : An engine maker with EV aspirations

Mobility powered by electricity is fast becoming a reality. And one space that is expected to see accelerated adoption of electric vehicles is the basic commuter space, made up of 2- wheelers, particularly scooters. Scooters are mostly used for short commutes, their electric versions have a more affordable purchase price after FAME II (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of EV) subsidy and they have lower running costs than petrol scooters. With almost 40 lakh scooters sold in India in a year, annual sales of 40,000 units for high-speed EV scooters look small. There is scope for faster adoption driven by basic commuting, e-commerce, and low speed mobility needs.
