Tips before Buying IPO in Zerodha?
The following are some of the tips you can put to use to increase your chances.
- First and foremost, make sure that you fill the IPO application form rightly and are not rejected on technical grounds.
- During the IPO process for XYZ company, a total of 785,165 applications were made for 375.059.792 equity shares. With a quota limit of 1,599,565 shares for RII i.e Retail Individual Investors, the issue was oversubscribed by 11.35 times. Though, after technical rejections, this came downward to 11.122 times.
Consider an issue with the price band of INR 90-100.
Now, if you make a bid at INR 95 and the discovered price is INR 98, your bid will be rejected. So, the optimal strategy is to make a bid at the highest possible limit of the price band.
However, RII(s) have an even better strategy available, make cut-off bids instead of price bids.
For this, you can select the right checkbox that says cut-off bid. This will secure that your bid will be honored at the discovered price regardless of what the bid price entered.
- As all applications are treated equally, the optimal strategy is to make as many applications as possible with different demat accounts.
You could do this by either asking all your family person to apply or by using multiple demat a/c for the purpose.
- While applying later is a good strategy, as this allows you to gather data based on bids already submitted, do not wait until the very last moment to submit your application.
Doing anything in haste can backfire. Give yourself some breathing space while submitting the bid.
