Thakkar had previously told Zee Business that the investors who are willing to invest in PSU bank stocks should go for SBI with a caveat that the investors should keep a medium to long term view - a point also made by another technical analyst Nilesh Jain, when this news service spoke to him earlier.
Thakkar however said that he did not see any major impact of the SBI Card IPO on the performance of the SBI stock.
SBI Cards & Payments Services Ltd, a payment solutions provider of SBI, on 11 February, received in-principle approval for the IPO (initial public offering) from the market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). SBI Cards & Payments Services Ltd, a payment solutions provider of SBI, on Tuesday, received in-principle approval for the IPO (initial public offering) from the market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).
Nilesh Jain had, however, taken a contrary position reiterating that the SBI stock may benefit from the upcoming SBI card IPO.
SBI Card IPO tentative date is most probably in the first week of March 2020. SBI Cards and Payment Services, a subsidiary of the country's largest lender State Bank of India is expecting to raise Rs 6000 crore from the SBI Card IPO. Banking heavily upon the SBI — India's largest commercial bank and promoter of SBI Card — the IPO is expected to outperform other IPOs' performances in the recent past, say some stock market experts, Zee Business earlier reported.
