Shares of Tata Technologies Ltd experienced a notable decline of approximately 8% during the initial trading session on Friday. This downturn was attributed to traders opting for profit booking in the wake of Tata Group’s recent entrant on Dalal Street. The stock exhibited a sharp drop in its second trading session, approaching its listing price.
Shares of Tata Technologies Ltd
Tata Tech shares saw an 8% dip to Rs 1,212.80 on Friday, compared to its closing price at Rs 1,314.25 on Thursday, the day of its maiden trading session.
The total market capitalization momentarily fell below the Rs 50,000 crore mark but made a slight recovery, reclaiming the Rs 50,000 crore m-cap threshold.
Debut Performance and Listing Gains
Tata Technologies made its debut on Dalal Street with its shares being listed at Rs 1,200, marking a substantial 140% premium over its issue price of Rs 500. The stock demonstrated further strength by surging an additional 17% to Rs 1,400, resulting in an overall gain of an impressive 180% over the issue price.
The remarkable listing gains for Tata Technologies set a record for the best performance ever in any Indian IPO of comparable size.
Market Expert’s Perspective
According to Amit Goel, Co-Founder & Chief Global Strategist at Pace 360, Tata Tech’s valuation seems comparable to its peers, but caution is advised. He expressed, “We believe that these valuations are not sustainable, and we would recommend booking profits on the counter over the next couple of weeks.”
For long-term investors, Goel suggests that better entry points might be available in the next 5-6 months when the stock could potentially be at more affordable valuations.
Tata Group’s Milestone IPO
Tata Technologies marked a significant milestone as the first IPO by the esteemed Tata Group in nearly two decades. The conglomerate’s last IPO venture was the initial public offering of Tata Consultancy Services in 2004, making this recent move noteworthy for the group.
The IPO, offered in the range of Rs 475-500 apiece with a lot size of 30 shares, witnessed robust demand across all investor categories.
The overall subscription reached an impressive 69.43 times, primarily fueled by substantial bidding from qualified institutional bidders (QIBs), whose portion was oversubscribed by an exceptional 203.41 times.
