What Should Investors Do Now?

Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investmart Ltd., said: “DreamFolks Ltd. has debuted at Rs. 508.70 i.e. 56 per cent above its issue price.  The company’s superb listing can be attributed to positive market sentiments, bright future prospects, and a phenomenal response from investors. The Indian aviation industry is at the cusp of exponential growth in the next two decades due to its demographic advantages, the potential growth in middle-class income, rising business travel, reduced cost of air travel and increased travel in Tier-2 and Tier-3 destinations. The company will be one of the biggest beneficiaries of the rising air travel in India and due to its first mover advantage and dominant position in the lounge access market, the company is poised to grow exponentially in the future. The issue was richly priced at a P/E of 104.82 based on annualized FY22 numbers and the promoters have diluted 33 per cent of their stake in the OFS.  Those who applied for listing gains can maintain a stop loss of Rs. 457. Only long-term investors with a moderate to high-risk appetite should enter post-listing.”
