Coronavirus impact and an ambitious valuation might play spoilsport

The SBI Cards IPO has come at a time when the coronavirus outbreak has had a big impact on global and Indian financial markets. Fueled by coronavirus fears, BSE Sensex and Nifty tanked over 6% on March 9, but are charting a rebound as Sensex surged by over 300 points. However, the volatile nature of markets might not bode well for subscribers of the IPO which might lose its sheen on listing.

Another aspect that might hurt investors who have subscribed to the SBI Cards IPO is the ambitious valuation and price per share. The grey market premium has reportedly crashed from ₹300-350 levels to less than ₹100 today. That means investors might lose a chunk of their investment on the very first day of listing on March 16.
