Mahanagar Gas: Run up to Listing

mgl stationThis page tries to analyse the response to IPO and factors in the run up to listing.

Mahanagar gas to debut on stock exchanges on 1/07/16 (Friday). Making a guess on the expected listing price is a hazardous job. The price entirely depends on appetite of buyers in the initial day as selling pressures are large. From fundamentals MGL deserves a conservative price of Rs. 500/- at the time of issue. Adding 5-6% for subsequent upswing in IGL and good sentiment in market Rs. 525 plus minus Rs. 15 seems reachable. Rs. 550/- levels also cannot be rules out in due course. The stock is fundamentally strong and may show slow and steady appreciation over 2-3 year time frame.
