Vodafone Idea, the third-biggest telecom provider in the nation, opened for subscription on Thursday, April 18, and ended on Monday, April 22. 

According to the red herring prospectus, the company plans to invest 12,750 crore of the entire proceeds from the FPO to purchase equipment for the creation of new 5G sites, expanding the capacity of existing 4G sites, and establishing new 4G sites. All of these initiatives will help the company expand its network infrastructure.

The telecom company will use the remaining FPO proceeds for an array of broad business goals, including financing working capital requirements. 

With its follow-on public offering earlier this week, Vodafone Idea raised around 5,400 crore from anchor investors, which included Jupiter Fund Management, Australian Super, GQG Partners, Fidelity Investments, and UBS Fund Management.

On Wednesday's session, Vodafone Idea share price closed 9.24% lower at 13.06 apiece on BSE.

“The share prior to listing has lost substantial ground and closed at 13.10. I belive that the trading range would be narrow as those who panicked have hedged their positions. Considering the response to the issue from QIBs, expect the share to do well. If i had to predict a range it would be 12.75 to 13.60 for the bulk of trading with some aberrations on either side," said Arun Kejriwal, founder of Kejriwal Research and Investment Services.

According to Rajesh Bhosale - Equity Technical and Derivative Analyst, Angel One, the stock is news due to its FPO and has seen trending moves in the last few sessions. However, ahead of the listing of its FPO, prices have seen most of its gains during the early part of the week. Overall, this counter remains a clear underperformer, and we maintain a view of avoiding aggressive bets on it. Any bounce should be used to exit long positions; 12 is support, and 15 is resistance.

Kapil Shah, Technical Analyst, Emkay Global and Technical Trainer, Finlearn Academy highlighted that Vodafone Idea share price is trading in the range of 12 to 14.5 from past 30 trading sessions. Stock is reacting from the upper band of consolidation to the lower band. Stock can further move down to test support level of 12.85 and 12.5.
