Mahindra Holiday & Resorts IPO

After a longtime, an IPO of reasonably good quality and size, has hit the Indian markets. Whether it is worth investing at the offer price, is debatable. Mahindra Holidays and Resorts India Limited (MHRIL) is India’s number one brand offering good family holidays.

The company’s brand Club Mahindra Holidays, has more than 75,000 members and 25 beautiful Resorts at some of the most exotic tourist spots in India and as well as abroad. Mahindra's some of the resorts at Coorg,Manali, Goa, Munnar and Dharmasala are winners of the RCI Gold Crown Award for the year 2008-2009.

Details of the issue:
The objects of the Issue are to raise capital for expansion of existing resorts and setting up new projects and ofcourse, to achieve the benefits of listing on the Stock Exchanges.

Issue Size is 92,65,275 Equity Shares of Rs. 10/-
Price Band: Rs 275/- to Rs 325/- of Face Value: Rs. 10/-
Market Lot of 20 Shares with a Minimum Order Quantity of 20 Shares.
The Issue is open from June 23 ,2009 to June 26, 2009.
The shares are to be listed at BSE and NSE.

The stock is offered at 25 times P/E of their current year's expected earnings, which is on the higher side. Since there are no comparables and it is the market leader at present, there is scope for some appreciation.


  1. Though it is a good company it is expensive. One could buy on listing if it is available below IPO price.

  2. Well do they have Spots out side India?

  3. @Character Education, No they dont have spots outside India. They might open , since they are getting funds now.

  4. Wish I knew more about stock, bonds, mutual funds and the like but I don't. I wouldn't know a good deal from a bad one. Sorry!!

    Friends 4 Life!

Your Bill Amounts Are Going To Increase From June 1, 2016

Service tax is a tax levied by the government on service providers on certain service transactions, but is actually borne by the customers. It is categorized under Indirect Tax and came into existence under the Finance Act, 1994. Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:

Phone Bills: Your phone bills are going to go up. So, pay a good 15 per cent now on service tax on phone bills.

Restaurant Bills :If you are dining in a restaurant that already has service tax applicable, you are going to pay more on your eating out. Though 0.5 per cent on a single bill may not mean much, frequent diners may end-up paying a lot during the year.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.

Moneycontrol Terminal - Streaming Live Quotes

Moneycontrol has introduced a new feature Moneycontrol Terminal - an enhanced version of real time price updates. Though there were live quotes provided by the website previously, the present form  gives a better update of live quotes of indices and stocks.

This terminal provides live streaming quotes for both NSE and BSE free. It also provides quotes for most of the indices and also the constituents/stocks of the indices in BSE and NSE.  The terminal also provides live news and other market news, which might be useful for traders. The hardware recommended is minimum of 1 GB RAM.

It would be better if stock of any choice could be added ( market watch of a set of stocks ), which would be easier to track one's trading positions. Anyway, this is a better alternative for people who don't have access to any trading software, to view live action of the markets.
