LIC IPO Received Decent Subscription
Even amidst negative market sentiments and high volatility, LIC IPO successfully garnered solid subscription. The IPO received an overall subscription of 2.94 times of the issue. In the retail market, it was subscribed 1.97 times by the interested investors. From the policyholder and employees category, the subscription was overwhelming at 6.06 times and 4.36 times respectively. This shows how positive investors are for LIC’s listing. Things might have been even better if the IPO would have launched in good market times.
The LIC IPO shares are being exchanged at a discount of Rs 25 in the unofficial market. The shares are trading at around Rs 925, against the issue price of Rs 949. This unofficial market is also known as the Grey Market, where the share prices give a hint on how the shares will perform actually on the listing day. This, however, is not a sure shot confirmation. Things might turn out to be positive by the time listing days comes. Analysts have a mixed view on the same, with some suggesting a premium of Rs 20-30, while others expecting a discount.
Market sentiments are quite clear. Investors are pulling out money from the market after the RBI announced interest rate hike a few days ago. This has somehow suppressed the healthy hype that surrounded LIC IPO, and the same may ruin the celebratory environment that was developed for the LIC listing. However, analysts suggest that investors should have a long term approach for investments in LIC and the market too will not remain the same forever.
The dark clouds of bearish sentiments are not only over the LIC IPO but has cast its shadow over other listings as well. Delhivery, which also has a decent issue size, is now trading at a discount of Rs 5 in the unofficial market. The story, however, is a bit positive for Venus Pipes and Tubes, which is the only issue to be able to hold some gains (Rs 8-10) in the grey market.
LIC IPO has registered its name as the largest ever issue in the history of Indian stock market. After getting listed, LIC is also going to become one of top market cap companies on the exchanges. Things will become clear on May 17 when the company will hit the market and have to go stand the investors’ test amid the existing market conditions.
- I have been allotted LIC shares and the GMP is negative, will I suffer loss?
Although GMP gives a hint on how the shares are going to perform on the listing day, it is still not a perfect confirmation. Furthermore, analysts suggest holding LIC shares for the long term and not just for listing gains.
- Can I sell the share before the listing day?
No, in general, there is no such viable way for retail investors to sell the shares before the listing day.
- I don’t know my LIC IPO application number and DP ID, how can I check the allotment status?
The simplest and easiest way to check LIC IPO allotment status is through your PAN. Visit the NSE/BSE or KFin Tech website and check the LIC IPO allotment status using your PAN, even though you do not remember application number and client ID.
- I am a policyholder, will I be getting a discount even after listing?
No, discount was available only during IPO subscription. Once the shares get listed, you have to buy them at the prevailing market price only.
