  • Largest global player, high demand solar industry,  reputed promoter, Strong financial performance are the plus.
  • While current slowdown in global economic markets, client concentration are the risk. Price to Earning (P/E) is around 20 which looks fully priced.
  • Considering all the factors, my personal view is “Positive” for listing gain. But due to current market volatility I recommend you to watch QIB & NII for first 2 days & based on the response take the decision.
