Should you subscribe to Policybazaar IPO when it opens?

The company is loss-making and being a fintech, valuations also make no sense.  At the upper band of Rs 980, the company is demanding a market cap of 44041 Cr post listing. As per FY22A sales, the company is demanding 44x Price to sales, which is very expensive. Yes, the insurance penetration is low in India, online is even very less and the scope for such aggregators/online brokers is HUGE! But many are entering the space and creating their own ecosystem of financial services. Brokerages are creating platform companies with all services inside, fintechs too are entering and insurance creators i.e life and general insurance companies are taking the tech route themselves and they are no rush as agents are accounting for a good share of the business. HDFC Ergo and ICICI Lombard have already logged out of PolicyBazaar. Keeping in mind all of this, we have an avoid on the IPO. We would like to monitor this space for more time before taking up any action. Aditya Kondawar, COO, JST Investments

Nifty short-term resistance at 18350

That would trigger the next leg of this rally. 18000 is good support for the markets and until we do not break this on a closing basis, dips can be utilized to accumulate long positions.

Nifty needs to close above 18350 to resume uptrend

The index has not been able to close above 18350 which is a crucial level.

If this level is disrespected, it would result in a psychological and technical breach of confidence. Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments
