  1. Anil Ambani Reliance companies are being considered as ‘panvati’ by most dealers — I checked with 5 different ones, 3 banks and 4 of the biggest brokerage houses — due to the quickness with which that group spins off stock and causes mergers/de-mergers… They therefore avoid it like plague! Which is why Reliance Housing Finance is also being punished and seems to be struggling to find a bottom despite Reliance Capital spinning off the lucrative Housing Finance business, as a result even Rel Cap is suffering! RHFL was supposed to list at 115-120 but within a month has dropped to the 70’s and expected to go down further… So with that in mind don’t be surprised if this company also fails to do well, especially with the glut of insurance companies hitting the market the last few days and many options for the common investors to choose from!

  2. Good info on this page. I heard price will be 247-252 so PE will be 36.8. Little bit on the higher side!

    ADAG group company so ppl will instantly remember Reliance Power but I think it is among the better businesses in the group.
