Initial public stock offering (IPO)- is simply known as an "offering" or "flotation".
When a company issues common stock or shares to the public for the first time it is
referred as an IPO. A Book building process is used in order to determine the market
price for an IPO.

Editorial Team Ex-Rights- Shares of stock that are trading but no longer have rights attached
because they have either expired, been transferred to another investor or been
exercised. The rights originally assigned to the stockholder are, for whatever
Chanchal Agarwal reason, no longer valid or no longer applicable to the stock.
Kamal Girdhar Ex-rights shares are worth less than shares which are not yet ex-rights - the ex-
Nikhil Kant rights shares do not give a shareholder access to a rights offering.

Saurabh Bansal Right Issue- Right Issue is basically done under a secondary market to raise
Saurabh Chhabra money in a company. Under the issued rights, the existing shareholders have the
option to buy a specified number of new shares from the firm at a specified price
within a specified time. A rights issue is in contrast to an IPO (primary market
offering), where shares are issued to the general public through market exchanges.

Follow on Public Issue (FPO)- When the company raises capital, after an IPO has
already been made and shares of company are held by public and are already
listed on the stock exchange, is called FPO. A company has an authorized capital
limit. At the time of an IPO the company doesn't go for full authorized capital issue.
The subscribed/issued capital by the company is less than the authorized capital.
The company can avail the rest of the limit in future to raise more funds. This is done
by issuing new shares in the market again by the process of FPO.
Bonus share- is a free share of stock given to current/existing shareholders in a
company, based upon the number of shares that the shareholder already owns at
the time of announcement of the bonus. While the issue of bonus shares increases
the total number of shares issued and owned, it does not increase the value of the
company. A company may decide to distribute further shares as an alternative to
increasing the dividend payout. Although the total number of issued shares
increases, the ratio of number of shares held by each shareholder remains

Growth stocks & Value stocks
Should the title be changed to Growth stocks vs. Value stocks? So many dichotomies
have become part of our everyday lives - like Good vs. Evil, Black vs. White, East vs.
West, Fundamental analysis vs. Technical analysis - that we have come to believe
them as truths.
The reality is different. By creating compartments through our dogma, we get into
behavioural patterns that are detrimental to our emotional and financial well-being.

What is a Growth stock?

These are stocks belonging to companies that have shown a consistent above-
average growth in sales or earnings in the past, and are expected to maintain the rate
of growth in future. One measure of growth is RoE (Return on Equity) above 15%.
To fuel such growth, cash is a major requirement. So companies often forego
dividend payments to plow the earnings back into the business. When the earnings
are inadequate to fund the growth, companies resort to share issues and debt.
Typically, these are high P/E stocks with volatile price movements that make them
risky to own. Investors expect to make large capital gains and often get trapped by the
'greater fool theory'.

What is a Value stock?

These are stocks belonging to companies that are considered to be trading at a level
lower than their intrinsic values, as determined by fundamental analysis of sales,
earnings, dividend payments.
These stocks have low P/E or P/BV ratios and high dividend yields. Hence they have
lower risk and a bigger 'Margin of Safety'. Value stocks tend to out-perform growth
stocks during bear markets and under-perform in the later stages of bull markets. Like
in life, which has more shades of gray than black or white, there is no distinct dividing
line between a Growth stock and a Value stock.
No company can have a high growth rate forever. Sooner or later, as its size
increases, growth rate will begin to slow down. If it survives, it will become a stalwart
and pay regular dividends and grow steadily. The key phrase is: 'if it survives'.
Taking on too much debt, or issuing too many shares in the singular pursuit of growth
can weaken the balance sheet so badly that the company can collapse under the
weight of its interest payments. Stocks from the retail and realty sectors come to mind.

Should investors choose Growth stocks or Value Stocks for their portfolios?
It need not be an either/or situation. Why not choose Growth stocks and Value
stocks? How about using the 80-20 rule? Keep 80% of your portfolio in Value stocks,
and 20% in Growth stocks. Remember that the best time to look for Value stocks is
when the stock market is down, not when it is up 70% from its recent low. That doesn't
mean that Value stocks are not available in bull markets.

Following own rule while investing in equities
A couple of years ago, hopes were high that a large chunk of household savings,
which account for nearly two-third of all domestic savings in India, will find its way to
the stock market through mutual funds, insurance companies and banks.
Investments in shares and debentures by households grew at a rate of 149% a year
during FY 2005-07 as mutual funds and unit-linked insurance policies made rapid
inroads in urban India. In FY08 the stock market absorbed nearly 12% of all
household savings in India, up from less than 1% in FY04.
Yet, today it looks extremely unlikely that household savings will become a backbone
for the stock market just like foreign institutional investors (FIIs). That is because
individual investors in India follow their own rule of investment sell when the market is
falling and buy when it is rising which is like shooting oneself in the foot.
The basic rule for investment in equities is to buy securities when the equity market is
falling. But every time the market crashes, retail investors rush out of the market,
creating a stampede and hurting themselves so badly that many wouldn't want to
return ever. This gives equities a bad name and restricts the upside potential for retail
Take the case of the market turmoil in Jan' 08 and the free fall since then, this induced
individual investors to flee to the safety of traditional investment avenues like bank
deposits, insurance polices and cash and household savings in shares and
debentures declined by 78% in FY09 against the average growth of 71.5% in
previous three years. But actually they had missed a golden opportunity.

The signs of recovery and improved global liquidity reversed the trend in equity
market to northward since mid-March '09. The Sensex nearly doubled in less than six
months. And guess what, retail investors are back in Dalal Street. The rising retail
participation is evident from the rising assets under management of the equity mutual
funds, which have grown from Rs 1,01,000 crore in Feb '09 to Rs 1,81,000 crore by
the end of Aug '09.

Obviously, with each rise in the market, the chances of making a loss is higher than
making a gain. In contrast, during the 2008 meltdown, the chances of a bottoming out
was greater than a further fall. At the beginning of 2009, the price-earning ratio (P/E)
were at record low level for almost all stocks. However, people kept waiting for the
valuations to fall further, but the market just not recovered but zoomed.

So, if one decides to enter the equity market now, the returns are likely to be at best
modest given the fact that most stocks are near their year highs while some have
touched all time highs. Then there are concerns on account of underlying inflationary
pressure and a strong likelihood of a monetary tightening by the central bank. This
may drag the equity markets down. If this happens, retail investors may book a loss
and equities will again get a bad name.

Investors should not forget that booms and busts cycles are an integral part of equity
markets and if one plays these cycles smartly, he can generate long-term wealth and
