"IdeaForge Technology mada a tremendous entry into the market at a listing price of 1,300. This is a significant gain of around 93% for investors, as the company's issue price at the upper band was 672.

While there is no doubt that this was a great opportunity for investors, and it has delivered some surprising returns, we would recommend that investors should book profits and exit their positions. This is because after listing the stock is already trading at a significant premium to its issue price. Additionally, there are some business-related risks associated with the company, so it is better to lock in these gains now rather than take the risk of carrying them forward however, aggressive investors can still hold it with stop loss at 1,170," said Anubhuti Mishra, Equity Research Analyst at Swastika Investmart Ltd.
