The stock hit the 20 per cent upper circuit for the third straight day since listing. The newly-listed casual dining company’s shares made a weak listing earlier this week at Rs 492 per share, as against the IPO price of Rs 500 per share. However, the shares surged to hit a 20 per cent upper circuit on the listing day in the noon deals. As the stock has rallied 68 per cent from the IPO price, analysts have advised investors to sell the Barbeque-Nation Hospitality stock. “Whoever has the stock should sell. The stock price move indicates an extreme speculative activity,” Investment advisor Sandip Sabharwal told Financial Express Online. He also added that valuations, even in a no lockdown normal economic scenario, are prohibitive.
