SRM Contractors IPO listing price fell significantly short of expectations as the GMP today, or grey market premium today, was 42% earlier. SRM Contractors IPO also received a strong overall subscription of 86.57 times and this also added to the surprise of the flat listing, as per analysts.

Should investors hold the stock?

Investors in SRM Contractors IPO are now wondering whether they should hold the stock after listing or sell and book profits.

“Despite the strong subscription, some investors might have found the valuation at listing less attractive. Also, broader market conditions might have impacted investor sentiment and tempered listing gains," said Shivani Nyati, Head of Wealth, Swastika Investmart Ltd.

Nyati believes SRM Contractors’ flat listing, while not what pre-listing indicators suggested, doesn’t necessarily negate its future potential. 

“The company’s strong regional presence, in-house capabilities, and healthy order book remain positive points. However, a cautious approach is advisable," she added.
