A Note on SBI Card IPO

Two #trending topics relating to stock markets are SBI Card IPO and the sell-off due to Coronavirus.

The IPO is priced at Rs 755 at the upper band and the company plans to raise around 10,000 crore rupees. Grey market premium stands at Rs 180 – Rs 190 (in premiums) apiece. Earlier estimates suggested Rs 400 in premium per share. Coronavirus fear has got the market sentiments down.

Looking at the P/E ratio one can say that the IPO is very highly valued. The P/E stands over ~45.
