The raw materials used by company pre-dominantly includes carbon steel, alloy steel and stainless steel, the price of which has been volatile in the past which could affect their operating margins. ''At the price of ₹900, the asking PE comes at 24x. High sentiment in primary markets may emnate in listing gains but for long term it would be worthy to watch for future performance and take any decision,'' Doshi said.

''For Rolex Rings, the revenues for most listed peers and the company have declined over the past four years but the company has generated better ROEs on account of better Asset Turnover. The company has a long-standing relationship with existing clients and the with newer products, it should be able to increase the share from existing customers.. Considering potential rebound in demand from user industries, we have a positive outlook on Rolex Rings IPO,'' said Milan Desai, Lead Equity Analyst, Angel Broking.
