What Analysts say

Brokerage Motilal Oswal has a "subscribe" rating on Angel Broking's IPO.

"At the higher end of the price band, the issue is valued at 29x FY20 P/E (fully diluted), which is seems fairly priced," Motilal Oswal said in a note. The brokerage is positive on Angel given its leading position in retail broking, robust technology platform and innovative offerings.

Top players are likely to gain market share considering the sharp rise in retail participation and ongoing industry challenges, Motilal Oswal said.

Nirali Shah, senior research analyst, Samco Securities:

"Angel Broking has the ability to use technology to cut down on costs which gives it an edge against traditional brokers. It has witnessed consistent growth in customer base helping it command a market share of 6.3 per cent, making it the 4th largest broker in terms of active clients. The pandemic has been a boon for the broking business as the number of retail investors have increased substantially."

"But from a valuation perspective, Angel Broking is valued at a price-to-earnings multiple of 26.6 times, which is slightly higher than expected. The company is well-placed compared to its peers and hence we recommend market participants to subscribe to this IPO too for listing gains only."
