About the Fedbank Financial Services IPO GMP

The grey market price (GMP) trading normally starts about 4-5 days prior to IPO opening and continues till the listing date. In the case of Fedbank Financial Services Ltd, we already have GMP data for the last 4 days, which should give a reasonable picture of the likely listing. We have not considered previous data, since the price has just been announced.

There are 2 factors that impact the GMP. Firstly, the market conditions have a deep impact on the GMP, especially the liquidity conditions in the market. Secondly, the extent of subscription for the IPO has a deep impact on the GMP as it is indicative of investor interest in the stock. GMP can also technically be in negative, which means the stock would list at a discount to the issue price.

There is one small point to remember here. The GMP is not an official price point, just a popular informal price point. However, in most cases, it has been observed to be a good informal gauge of demand and supply for the IPO. Hence it does give a broad idea of how the listing is likely to be and how the post-listing performance of the stock would be.

How has the GMP panned out in last few days

GMP tends to be a good mirror of the real stock story. More than the actual price, it is the GMP trend over time that gives insights about which direction the wind is blowing. Here is a quick GMP summary for Fedbank Financial Services IPO for which the data is available.































In the above case, the GMP trend shows that the grey market premium has opened at around ₹5, but has later drifted lower to ₹0 per share from the second day onwards and that is where it has stayed till today, i.e., 20th November 2023. Fedbank Financial Services IPO price was only announced on last Friday, so the actual GMP may still take some time to manifest the real underlying value. Of course, we have to wait for the actual subscription numbers to flow in after the issue opens for subscription on 22nd November 2023 and also watch the progress, as that would have a very significant impact on the GMP. In the past, stocks which got oversubscribed in the IPO also saw a very robust positive shift in the grey market pricing. For a start, Fedbank Financial Services Ltd has shown moderately strong traction in the grey market.

If you consider the upper end of price band of the Fedbank Financial Services IPO at ₹140, then the likely listing price is being signalled at around ₹148 per share as per the GMP indicator on 20th November 2023. This is dynamic and keeps changing. One data point to track will be the subscription update on the stock as that would chart the GMP course.

The GMP of ₹8 on the upper end of the book built IPO price of ₹140 indicates a listing premium of a modest 5.71% for Fedbank Financial Services Ltd over the IPO issue price. That pre-supposes a listing price of approximately ₹148 per share, when Fedbank Financial Services Ltd lists on 05th December 2023. Of course, these are purely approximations, so you must keep a margin of safety. One needs to observe the trend of GMP closely as that gives the best hints on listing. Look at the time series trend instead of just pure GMP value.
