primary market will be abuzz with activity in the week ahead with five companies scheduled to launch IPOs (Initial Public Offerings) worth over ₹7,000 crore.
Analysts said the strong sentiment in the secondary market could help these IPOs and advise investors to subscribe to these issues at least for listing gains.
Bankers said retail investors may consider issues like Tata Technologies and IREDA over others because of the limited money available for investments.
The flood of IPOs in this short period is unlikely to hurt liquidity in the main markets, said bankers.
«The money from one issue may not be available for the other; but except for that, the broader market may not see any effect,» said Satyen Shah, president, Nuvama Investment Banking and Fixed Income.

IPO Size: ₹3,042 crore
Price Band: ₹475-500
Open-Close Date: November 22 — 24
