Companies with strong fundamentals are particularly catching the attention of investors, leading to a robust subscription rate during their bidding period and subsequently translating into impressive debuts. Against this backdrop, Vibhor Steel, which made its stock market debut yesterday, experienced a significant listing gain, reflecting the broader trend in the market.
