I was wondering if anyone reading this blog is active in the stock market. I know that many who don't actively trade stocks participate in IPOs. What's the word on this one. It's being offered at RO. 1.42 per share. A lot of people keep asking me what I think of this IPO, but I don't invest in the stock market and all I know is what I hear from others. I first heard it might go to 1.65 but lately I'm hearing it might be as high as 1.8.
What have you heard, and are you planning to put any money in it?
I got my hand on an investment research analysis of this IPO. They've crunched the numbers three ways: discounted cash flow method, dividend discounted model, and dividend yield. They conclude that the fair value of the share is over RO. 1.8 and possibly as high as 2 rials. If it turns out true then that's a return of anywhere from 27% to 43%. Not bad. Now if only the allocation turns out to be as nice as AES Barka where everyone got a minimum of 1500 shares.
