Vodafone Idea FPO: Should you buy?

10] Vodafone Idea FPO review: Giving a 'buy' tag to the Vodafone Idea FPO, Arun Kejriwal, Founder of Kejriwal Research and Investment Services said, "One should apply to the Vodafone Idea FPO for these four reasons — 1] The offer has been made at a handsome 20 percent premium against the current Vodafone Idea share price; 2] Government of India is strongly standing behind the company as they don't want to give monopoly to two companies in such a big telecom industry in India; 3] The telecom company has not done any CAPEX in the last four too five years. The net proceeds of the Vodafone Idea FPO may enable the company to work on its CAPEX, and 4] The anchor book of the Vodafone Idea FPO signals that some serious kind of investors are coming on board with the Vodafone Idea."

Kejriwal said that one can apply for the Vodafone Idea FPO for listing gains as well as for the medium to long-term gains.

Prashant Tapse, Senior VP — Research at Mehta Equities has also given a ‘subscribe’ tag to the Vodafone Idea FPO saying, “If fully subscribed, Vodafone Idea FPO will be the largest FPO in history, surpassing the 15,000 crore Yes Bank and 10,542 crore ONGC offers."
