DCX Systems Makes Stellar Debut At Stock Market, Trading Up 47% Over Issue Price

DCX Systemsa Bengaluru-based electronic sub-systems and cable harnesses manufacturing firm, on Friday saw a stellar debut listing on the stock market. It is currently trading at Rs 304.4 apiece on the BSE a premium of about 47 per cent over its issue price of Rs 207. The listing premium is in line with the trend in the grey market premium.

During the debut listing on Friday, DCX Systems opened at Rs 286.25 apiece on the BSE, against the issue price of Rs 207. It touched its high of Rs 304.85 and a low of Rs 286.25 during the early trade.

Pravesh Gour, senior technical analyst at Swastika Investmart, said, “The company’s strong listing can be attributed to unexciting investor subscription levels. As the company has been able to create long-term and deeply entrenched relationships with its clients due to its execution capability in terms of time & cost, ability to maintain confidentiality, and experienced management team.”

Gour, however, said there are concerns with the company like high dependence on key customers, the majority of the revenue from low margin built to print offset defense contracts, the regulated nature of the industry, high debt to equity, and high working capital requirements. “Therefore, we advise investors to lock in listing gains and only aggressive investors should consider making a long-term commitment to the company. Those who applied for listing gains can maintain a stop loss of Rs 245.”
