Some of the stocks in BusinessLine Portfolio’s Take 500 page has data related to 2016 and 2017. Can you rectify this?

––Ananthanarayanan, Hyderabad

BL Research Bureau says: Apologies for the inconvenience caused and thank you for bringing this to our notice. We have rectified this since last week’s (February 21) edition. Our base now is limited to companies in the BSE 500 index.

The data on Nifty Forward PE for 2021 published on the February 21 edition changes from Page 1 to Page 2. Why are they drastically different?

––Ajay Changia

BLRB Says: Thanks for pointing out the difference. The numbers on page 2 are an automated feed from Bloomberg that picks the annual estimates for 2021.For the article on page 1, we have taken a summation of forward four quarters’ estimates. We are reconciling the reasons for this difference with Bloomberg.

The BL Portfolio Podcast shared on February 21 on ‘Fixed income investment options’ was lucid. Thanks.

––Vijay KThe below comments are with respect to the Big Story titled ‘IPO Lessons for Investors’ published on February 21:

Nicely detailed to act as a caution for the retail investor. It would have been better if the issue price was also mentioned so as to provide a clear picture on the loss/gain at the current price.

––Ajay Gupta

Those, who are not able to make any analysis on valuations or basics of an IPO stock, can follow institutional investors. However, those who resort to this idea shall exit immediately upon making listing gains even if it is less than 15 per cent, and should not wait for larger returns. In worst case, loss is restricted to 2- 5 per cent of the investment which can be managed.
