Gold Related Indian Firm Makes For Hot IPO

One of Indian's largest gold-financing companies, Muthoot Finance, has had its IPO oversubscribed 10 times. That 's a hot IPO.
The issue has been subscribed 10 times so far, as per data available on NSE. Reserved portion of qualified institutional bidders, which closes today, has subscribed more than 23 times - QIBs put in bids for more than 41 crore [410 million] equity shares as against reserved portion of 1.8 crore [18 million] shares.

Non-institutional and retail investors' portion remains undersubscribed.

Normally, this oversubscription would raise a red flag - but note the differential between institutional investors and the other two categories. It's only the institutional players that are piling over each other to get in; the retail bloke, by comparison, seems monumentally uninterested. The true red flag comes when Joe Average piles in.
