Should you subscribe to RR Kabel IPO, Zaggle IPO, Samhi Hotels IPO or Yatra Online IPO? Here's what experts say

Prashanth Tapse, Research Analyst, Senior Vice President of Research at Mehta Equities

Prashanth Tapse said that when compared with all four, RR Kabel stands to be the largest in terms of market cap ( 11,675 crore) and others fall in the range of 2,000-2,750 crore. On valuation parse all IPOs are relatively asking high valuation when compared to their peers, which is the main reason to advise investors to avoid any short term listing bets in the above offers while high risk tolerant investors may choose to invest based on individual risk appetite for long term.

Based on financial performance and analysis all the issues are exorbitantly priced leaving no room for healthy listing gains for new investors. In Yatra Online the company has turned business from a loss making to profit making but considering the company's uneven financial performance we feel it’s difficult to assume future profitability due to stiff competition in the industry hence investors looking to invest should wait and watch post listing to take any bets on fluctuating trending sectors.

In the RR Kabel offer, the IPO offers come with higher OFS issues (90% of IPO) which is an area of concern for new investors. Hence considering sector rationales and overpriced valuation risk, we recommend investors to "SUBSCRIBE WITH RISK" with long-term perspective only.

Samhi hotel, a leading hotel ownership and asset management platform in India, is also coming with overpriced valuations with loss making financials which can be a reason to skip the IPO and watch post listing performance.

Zaggle is a unique fintech player with B2B and B2C business models engaged in fintech products However with high ask valuation risk seekers can look to invest in this IPO but long term perspective only.

Kris Arun Kejriwal, Founder, Kejriwal Research and Investment Services an advisory firm

Kejriwal explained that all the four IPOs are from different sectors, hence not comparable. Further, one is manufacturer of wires and cables and is a large issue almost 1,900 crore. Expensive, hence low level of subscription at end of day two.

Second is Samhi hotel asset manager having 4,800 keys. Yet to break even but at the point of inflection in two to three quarters. Considering current losses leaves nothing on table but becomes attractive ten percent or fifteen percent lower.

Zaggle IPO is interesting business, but asking for the sun and the moon. OFS is not understsndable as company is bootstrapped and falling margins keep one worried.

Fourth is a Nasdaq listed travel portal, Yatra IPO where all the OFS money goes to holding company. Turned profitable only last year

"If, I have to choose one best post listing it will be Samhi Hotels," said Kejriwal.

Avinash Gorakshakar, Head-Research at Profitmart Securities

"We believe that the Zaggle IPO looks attractive as it has a established business model and is profitable. It's enjoys a Return on equity (ROE) of 46%, which is clearly refflective if it's profitability. Also it is the only player in this space and largely competes with global players making it a monopoly in the domestic market. Hence, long term prospects look good and investors can apply here for long term investment," said Gorakshakar.
