Buzzing Stock Thinksoft

Thinksoft Global Services recently came out with an IPO of 36,46,000 equity shares at a price of Rs.125, which had to revise the price band and extend the subscription period due to poor response from investors. While the markets were tanking, the stock listed at 30% premium, before closing at Rs.165 on the first trading session.

The stock had witnessed 220 bulk deals (including 140 on NSE and 80 on BSE).The total traded quantity was about 2 crore shares while the issue size is 36 lakh shares. The stock has surged more than 70 per cent in the three days since listing. This is yet another case of operator driven mid-cap rise.

Some updates:
The company is a player with its total income at Rs. 95.66 crores with PAT at Rs. 14.50 crores resulting in an EPS of Rs. 16. Many quality mid cap IT stocks are available in a P/E band of 6 to 8 times, while this will be a small cap company which would rule at much lower PE. At CMP, the stock is trading at a P/E of 13 times.

There have been many such stocks like Resurgere Mines,GSS America, Selmcl, Ackruti city etc , driven up by such operators, which are now substantially below the traded price during the listing time.

Though there may be some more fireworks left,it would languish after that.
Buyer Beware !

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.




You could just try the same here at Moneycontrol Terminal
