  • Will try my luck to get some, but not plan to hold it for long term, what do you think?

  • Ipo price is 1.25 nor 1.50.

  • SK, yes agree with you. I may apply too but sell it all on the first day.

    Dali, it was typo error. It should be RM1.25.

    • wat make u decide to sell it all on the 1st day? Please advise, thanks.

  • DC, if you watch the first day price on many IPO, you will see that the price may go as high as 4 times the IPO price. After that, it slowly dwindling down back to IPO price or even lower. So why wait.

    This is of course does not include big IPO such as PCHEM or MHE.

  • but i thk old town is a quite potential company

  • king, why you say it OldTown is potential company? But remember even big & have potential company like UOADEV also suffered after listing.

  • my prediction is sell immediately on the first day if you manage to get the IPO at 1.25. Price will goes up on the first day but not consistenly ups and it’s on downward trend. If you were to hold this stock after few more days, price are likely to bounce back below the IPO price.cheers.

  • don’t you think the company have too high goodwill and negative reserve

  • I thk so because , the public always say food and beverage company a lot of competitors , although old town have alot of competitors , they still can earn money and listing in bursa , they strong in their marketing strategy ..that my opinion

  • Fair value / Target price,

    HWangDBS – RM1.50
    OSK – RM1.34
    TA – RM1.33

  • Dun worry.. This is Vincent Tan funds… Let see on the movement after few days listing.. Cheers

  • this share just 10x oversubscribe.. any chances the share is going to be goreng by any speculator?. by the small number of share in the market is another factor of easy target by speculator
