Tracxn Technologies listing likely to be disappointing

“Tracxn Technologies Ltd. is expected to have a muted to negative listing owing to high valuations, less than stellar subscription numbers and the nature of the issue being OFS; the current GMP is -3 around 3.75% below its issue price. Due to the rising interest rates globally & recessionary conditions in major markets like North America & Europe the Private Equity Markets, Venture Capital markets, Investment Banks, and Family offices are witnessing a significant cutback in terms of activities and traction; additionally, M&A activities have been subdued. Thus we believe that the company will find it difficult to substantially grow its client base and top line in the coming years. Finally, the exorbitant valuation of Price to Sales of ~12.5 (Based on FY 22 numbers and Upper band price) and high competition from global players made it very difficult to recommend this issue. Thus we had assigned Avoid Rating for this issue. And investors must wait for a few quarters before deciding whether to invest or not for the long term,”~Aayush Agrawal, Senior Research Analyst, Swastika Investmart Ltd

Nifty, Sensex to extend gains

“Overnight gains in the US markets and subsequent optimism in the Asian pack is likely to help local benchmark indices extend gains in Wednesday trades. The sluggish trend in the US dollar near the 112 levels and sliding crude oil prices to $85 a barrel would boost the market sentiment. Concerns over rising interest rates in the
next month's policy meeting by the US Fed after last week's higher-than-expected inflation data will keep investors on the edge, although the market is already preparing for a higher rate hike. Technically, for Nifty the immediate target is at 17589 mark, while support for the index is seen at 17227,”~Prashanth Tapse – Research Analyst, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities
