Tradeville brokerage house has calculated a target price of RON 12.17 for Nuclearelectrica’s stocks based on the dividends that the company could distribute in the coming years. The analysis shows that psychological perceptions and speculative capital will play a fundamental role in Nuclearelectrica IPO. However, perceptions might change after the listing, when investors might return to the fundamentals of the company.
Here’s what the analytical paper says about start prices: “We believe that the initial public offering for the sale of a package of 10% of Nuclearelectrica (…) offer small investors a good speculative opportunity, particularly in the case of bids made in the first three days enjoying a discount of 8%.
Using a valuation model of dividends that may be paid by the company in the coming years, we calculated a target price of RON 12.17 for the next 12 months and we appreciate the institutional investors will be interested in holding Nuclearelectrica’s share prices during the first trading sessions ( . .. ). “
Analysts raise the possibility of a significant over-subscription: “We think the fundamentals are at the beginning of a trend. This, as well as the euphoria of the first local IPO in five years will lead to a significant over-subscription for the stocks offered and put pressure on first trading session.
Accordingly, the positive perception from the investors may increase the market price of Nuclearelectrica’s stocks over the price target we calculated, which might be speculated particularly by subscribing in the early days of the offering.”
