Where Should you invest?

While the IPO market is growing by leaps and bounds for the SME segment and investors are benefiting from it, but we recommend you to invest in A and M Jumbo Bags IPO  if you can hold the investments for long term and if you have excess cash.

Gujarat Hy Spin Limited IPO is not that attractive unless you want to place bet on a penny stock in your kitty. Going by the financials till the financial year 2015 the company has shown steady growth in profits, but in FY 2016, it has shown sharp decline in the profits.

Medico Remedies IPO’s only drawback is the high price of Rs 100 per equity share, which seems to be on higher side. Here, we will give a neutral on this new issue. We feel that the long term investors can apply for this IPO. Though company financials reveal that the company has managed to grow steadily year on year. The main reason for the investor will be steady profit graph.
