  1. No major loss considering the discount for small investors but it just leaves a bad taste that bankers and the management couldn’t resist the temptation of earning a few crores more!

    PSU management casually squanders crores here and there so expecting caution on IPO pricing is a tall order I suppose…

  2. Insurance company’s are performing good in industry. NIA is largest network and they have Good Permanent and Stander-ed Customers of Government of India and State governments also. They have network in 29 States and Union Territory also at the same time they are releasing good products. insurance is mandatory for many properties and life’s. how ever this is the best script for Being Large cap Trading in stock Market in coming days. This price will be grown up to 1500 to 1800 coming 2 years.

  3. My advice is that its a long term investment. If you have additional fund for saving purpose, please hold this portfolio and any way Insurances Sectors are doing well and there products have become part of life.

  4. Thanks for retailers ….don’t worry guys…we could buy at Rs 650 at the time of listing….it is fake valuation price from SEBI.

  5. To all public’s….don’t rush and increase the listing price….let it list as it is…and buy after settle…this is not D mart..this is like sbi only

  6. Day 1 is good. FII is expected only on last day as usual. Company plans 200 New branches this year. FY 18 Q1 is good. Analysts are looking at stead y price of 910. I am considering 3 lots as safe play.

  7. @5PB : 910(1 year target after listing)

    So yes price band is good compared to lombard and it should/must be good as this is psu firm.
    Positives are high. I am Buying

  8. As per CRISIL Report, NIA has the largest market share among general insurers in India….. More than 25 million policies issued…… highest among all general insurance companies in India. It’s the largest player and industry trendsetter….. good investment bet.

  9. AVOID
    AVIOD
    AVOID
    POOR DEMAND VERY LOW SUBSCRIPTION AND DISCOUNTED LISTING
    IPO INVEATORS WILL ONLY LOOSE MONEY

    KEEP YOUR MONEY SAFE FROM GOVT RUN INSURANCE IPOS.

  10. A company with the largest distribution network of more than 2,500 offices in India. Being a PSU, will also benefit from partnerships with state and central government for implementation of various insurance schemes. A must buy in my mind.

  11. NEW INDIA WILL DEFINATELY ROCKS MARKET

    • good afternoon sir ,
      i m unable to understand rating point ?
      they have been rated for what? i mean wht is d criteria of rating and yaa what does this AAA and A stands for ??
      i personally feel tht cost is quiet high!
      this will be ur generous gesture if u will answer d abve doubts.

      thank you

      • A.M.best is an international rating agency for Insurance. Their rating is respected worldwide like S&P. only difference is, S&P gives weigtage for the Country;s rating also. A.M. Best sees the performance, results and outlook on Insurance to give the rating. This is the only Indian Direct Insurance Company to have this rating for last 15+ years. CRISIL evaluates performance of company from Indian context. This company to be listed is having AAA with stable outlook.
        We should compare this company with ICICI Lombard as both are Direct insurance companies.
        Valuation of share to asset is 1.77 times which gives this scrip an edge to consider. Whereas the competitor ICICI Lombard placed it 8 times.
        In insurance Company scrip we need to read this as they own large number of assets with fair valuation. I wish to Buy this IPO.

  12. Hi , EPS for 2017 is 41 and price band is 800. So should’nt PE ration be less than 20 ? Also since FY 18 figures are for a quarter , should we take EPS for the year at 100 ?

    • You have reasonable doubts, and obvious. One is answered by two friends Balu and bullishbear above. Other one about FY18 EPS, for valuations purpose they estimate an annualised EPS for the whole year. So that is what they will consider. Even forward EPS, for FY19.
