Satluj Jal Vidyut Nigam (SJVN) IPO Review

hydroelectric powerSatluj Jal Vidyut Nigam (SJVN) Limited is coming out with an IPO of 415,000,000 equity shares of face value Rs. 10 each.

The company is a hydroelectric power generation company, a 75:25 unlisted joint venture between the Government of India (GOI) and the Government of Himachal Pradesh (GOHP). Currently, the company is engaged in designing, planning, developing, examining, organizing, executing, operating, as well as maintaining hydroelectric power projects.

Details of the Issue:
Issue Open: Apr 29, 2010 - May 03, 2010.
Issue Price : Rs.23-Rs.26.(Retail Investors to get 5% discount)
Market lot: 250 shares.

So what's in store for retail investors in this IPO?

The expected EPS for current year is around Rs.2.5 and the Book value is at Rs.16.The stock is cheaper compared to its peers, but the issue price could have been priced lower. But still this is a good issue to apply for long term. Fundamentally good stock to buy & hold for long term and not for listing gains.


  1. Good issue and one can apply for long term.

  2. Not much listing gains expected, no GMP.

  3. seems to be a good issue for long term

  4. Its show that people can still discern between junk and decent offerings. With a decent low double digit multiple and good dividend yield SJVN it makes sense for retail investors who get a 5% discount to subscribe to it. It certainly makes 10 times more sense than subscribing to the absolute junk that is being offering in the primary market

  5. Yes Abhishek, a good issue. Still the Promoter(GOI) could have priced it around the Book value, which would have been 40% less from current issue price.

  6. i love your picture and a little of this articles

  7. Thanks @ Metatrader.

  8. Expected listing date is 31 May 2010.

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.
