So Should you invest in Zomato if you have missed IPO or were not lucky to get an IPO?
Should you Buy Zomato Share
Most of the investors say if you have the IPO, you should sell 50% of your investment and book profit, and hold another 50% of your investment for the long term. There will be a price correction which will bring down the price to around ₹100/share. I suggest withdraw the investment amount and keep the profit in the market.
Ravi Singhal Vice-chairman at GCL securities said, those who were unable to get IPO allotment, should buy above ₹100 with a stop loss of ₹90. Zomato is a long-term stock and is expected to go up to ₹190 to ₹210 by the end of 2021.
As being a small investor in the Stock market and Mutual fund, there are 2 scenarios, either the prices will straight go up from ₹126 or the prices might come down to around ₹100. I believe the latter will happen, after which they can reach up to ₹200.
So I am going to wait for tomorrow’s bell to ring then decide whether to buy Zomato share or not. If the price comes around ₹100, I would suggest buying the Zomato share.
Zomato is a long-term investment, the business model of Zomato is different and there is no competition for them in NSE, BSE. If Swiggy launches its IPO then it will be a different scenario.
Though you should buy Zomato share only after your personal research, as market investments are risky and cause a loss.
