Engineers India FPO Review

Engineers India (EIL) is making a follow-on public offer (FPO), for 3.37 crore equity shares of Rs.5 each, in the price band of Rs. 270 to Rs. 290 per share. EIL,is one of the leading engineering consultancy company, has its focus on oil and gas and petrochemicals industries.

Details of the issue:
Issue Open: Jul 27, 2010 - Jul 30, 2010
Issue Size: 33,693,660 Equity Shares of Rs. 5.
Issue Price: Rs. 270 - Rs. 290 Per Equity Share
Market Lot: 20 Shares.
Listing At: BSE, NSE.
Discount of 5% is available for retail investors.

Some Fundamentals:
For FY10, the company reported net profit of Rs. 444 crore, resulting in an EPS of Rs. 13.19 on the present equity of Rs. 168 crore. The company is expected to report FY11 EPS of about Rs.15. At the upper end of the price band of Rs. 290, the issue is priced at a PE multiple of 19.33 times, based on FY11 earnings estimates.

Though the current price of EIL is around Rs. 310, the issue is not terribly expensive. Hence big listing gains cannot be expected, but one can apply with medium view, since the prospects are good as well as the 5% discount offers some cushion.


  1. If allotment made at lower band, it is fine.

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.
