What Should Investors Do Now?
Pravesh Gour, Senior Technical Analyst, Swastika Investmart Ltd, said: “Divgi TorqTransfer Systems shares have debuted as a flat-to-positive listing at Rs. 620 (+5 per cent) to its issue price, because of equity market conditions. The issue had also received a good response from investors on both the institutional and retail sides. It is dealing in a niche segment with high entry barriers. Divgi TTS has the advantage of an experienced management team. The company had also demonstrated consistent financial performance over the years. However, the majority of its business is dependent on a few customers, and geopolitical risk and competition from global players are some concerns. The issue had a P/E valuation of 35x, which was fairly priced. The current market condition is also not favorable. So, allottees who applied for the public offering for listing premium are advised to maintain their stop-loss at 610 and wait for further upside, whereas those who have a medium- to long-term perspective can hold the stock.”
