We expect it may list at around 2 times higher to its issue prices of Rs 197 and it will not be surprising if it closes at the upper circuit. Investors can stay long for higher returns.

Tarsons Products is a company with great brand awareness and high-quality goods. It is India’s leading life sciences product supplier.

We expect its shares to get listed at around Rs 850, investors can book part profit.

Looking at the macro-economic factors of the world and the Indian economy, we are bullish on the IT sector (which also includes profitable startups) and pharma-related companies in sub-segments like life sciences, API manufacturing and patient drugs.

Q: IT story is expected to remain solid going ahead, but is it time to increase exposure to the segment as the number of positive surprises has reduced?

We are in a bull run of IPOs where new-age businesses are on the front seat. IPO euphoria might lead to listing gains on 70 percent of the companies. We advise our investors that fundamentally strong and profitable companies in the tech business are bound to grow, hence investors can bet on the long-term perspective. While loss-making companies with a major OFS portion of the issue is a risky investment like Paytm, the Future of such companies will depend on their upcoming results.

Q: What are your broad expectations for Q2FY22 GDP that is expected to be announced at the end of this month?

Based on our research on economic indicators like inflation, interest rates, the financial performance of companies, we expect the real GDP growth rate in Q2FY22 may hit between 7.5 percent to 8 percent. Post lockdown of Q1, in Q2 Industrial output & demand, was higher and GDP growth rate could have touched 9 percent but with a little dent of input resource constraint & inflation on account of fuel prices, it seems doubtful.

Q: Since after hitting record highs last month (18,604 on Nifty), the market has been consolidating in a particular range. Do you think the consolidation to continue till the end of 2021?

Nifty is showing signs of distribution where it was consolidating between 20 and 50 - DMA throughout the November month and now it has witnessed closing below this band that may lead to further weakness. It is forming a bearish Head and Shoulder formation on the daily chart where 17,600 is neckline support; below this, Nifty is vulnerable for a meaningful correction towards the 16,700 level.

However, 17,450-17,250 is an intermediate support zone. On the upside, the 18,000-18,200 area has become a critical resistance area, and only above this zone, we can say that the bearish view has been negated therefore there is a good chance that Nifty may trade below the 18,000 level by the end of 2021.
