Public issues planned by Mamaearth and OYO seem to be risky propositions to Porinju Veliyath, Managing Director of Equity Intelligence.

In an interview with , Veliyath explained his stance and said he would prefer companies in the secondary market and doesn’t see deep value in new-age companies such as Paytm and Nykaa. Excerpts from the interview:

Any stock in 2022 that you regret holding or selling?
