LIC IPO - Long Thread:
This could be the most hated thread of mine, coz who can argue with LIC fan base? But if your money is not going the right way, I’ll raise questions like I always do. With $3BN riding on #LICIPO , this could be the saving bet for many. Or so you hope…🧵

India’s Insurance density (Premiums/population) is very low & you will hear this most from insurers. India at $59 per capita premium appears to be in its "infancy" with huge upside ahead. Even with a base of 1.4 Bn people, this does look attractive for high growth. Right ?
3/n
Until you look at the YoY trend below (not found in DRHP, obviously). India has been stuck in this range since 2009. In-fact we have a falling trend with some spurts. This hardly looks like a growth market to me. So what happened here ? We’ll examine this later.

THREAD 👇🏼

1As the #LICIPO opens today for retail investors here is a short thread of my pieces since 2020 revealing the anatomy of India’s biggest-ever privatisation scandal
2 I start with this piece, written in Feb 2020, after FinMin first announced intent to “sell” LIC. I asked: how can you sell something you do not even own? frontline.thehindu.com/economy/articl…
3 In this piece, written in early Feb 2022, I warned about the grave possibility of undervaluing #LIC, India’s Crown Jewel. This was written before the LIC’s DRHP was filed with SEBI newsclick.in/lic-ipo-underv…

As the #LIC IPO opens today, a small snippet from its history...one of independent India’s first scams involved LIC, and a large part of the credit of bringing it to light lay with Nehru’s son-in-law.
Feroze Gandhi; whose proposal of marriage Indira Gandhi had accepted as she wrote, ‘on the steps of the (Basilica) of Sacré-Coeur’ at the end of summer while ‘Paris bathed in soft sunshine,’ is said to have had an unpleasant relationship with his father-in-law Jawaharlal Nehru.
The marriage was said to eventually have become an unhappy one. But, like Indira, he too spent time in jail during the freedom struggle; and was a formidable enough parliamentarian, not least when he was embarrassing Nehru’s government.

LIC चा IPO येतोय..हा IPO घ्यावा म्हणून LIC कडून मोठी जाहिरातही केली जाते आहे.

पॉलिसी असणाऱ्यांनी हा IPO घ्यावा यासाठी LIC ने ६० रुपयांचा डिस्काउंट ही जाहीर केलाय..मग -

LIC चा मेगा IPO घ्यावा का ?

आणि

इन्शुरन्स चा धंदा मुळात चालतो कसा ह्याचा घेतलेला हा वेध..

#म #मराठीत
इन्शुरन्स चा धंदा मोठा किचकट आहे.

ह्यात पॉलिसी घेणाऱ्याकडून थोडे पैसे (प्रीमियम)घेतले जातात आणि काही अघटीत झाल्यास(पॉलिसीत नोंदल्याप्रमाणे उदा. अपघात ,मृत्यू ,आजारपण इ इ)पॉलिसी असणाऱ्याला भरलेल्या प्रीमियमच्या काही पट रक्कम दिली जाते..त्या रकमेला म्हणतात - Sum assured .
आता प्रश्न असा पडतो की इन्शुरन्स कंपनी इतके पटीने पैसे आणते तरी कुठून..??

ह्यासाठी इन्शुरन्स कंपन्या २ गोष्टी करतात - १.मागच्या वर्षी समजा १०० लोकांनी पॉलिसी घेतली आणि त्यातले १० लोकांनी क्लेम केला तर ह्या बाकीच्या ९० लोकांच्या प्रीमियममधून क्लेम केलेल्या लोकांना रक्कम दिली जाते

Now that #LIC IPO valuation is in public domain , lot of question would be asked what is #EmbeddedValue, her is some clarity
Definition: Embedded value is the sum of the net asset value and present value of future profits of a life insurance company.
#LICIPO #EV #IPOAlert

1/4
Description: This measure considers future profits from existing business only, and ignores the possibility of introduction of new policies and hence profits from those are not taken into account.

Source : m.economictimes.com/definition/emb…
3/4

#LICIPO to open for subscription on May 4, priced at ₹902 - ₹949.
#IPO valued at 1.11x embedded value.

Below valuation comparison with global and domestic peers.

Originally the EV for LIC was ₹1.25 trillion , after changing the methodology it is ₹5.4 trillion

Are you buying Insurance this year just to save taxes?

DON'T. 🤫

It could cost you more than it saves in taxes!

Here's how ⤵️
Suppose there is a Mr Rahul who gets Rs 7.5 Lakh a year as his salary (with no other sources of income).

➡️ In India, if you earn more than 5 Lakh, you have to pay taxes.

#taxpayers
But there are ways by which you can reduce your Taxable income. Some of them are:

° By investing up to 1.5 Lakh in PF, NSC, ELSS, Insurance, etc (80C)
° By investing up to 50 Thousand in NPS (80CCD)

एलआयसी आयपीओच्या निमित्ताने उभे राहिलेले प्रश्न

एलआयसी ही भारत सरकारची कंपनी आहे. आता आयपीद्वारे सरकार या कंपनीतला आपला काही हिस्सा विकणार आहे. हा हिस्सा विकला तरीही बराचसा हिस्सा सरकारकडे कायम असणार आहे.
#म #मराठी #LIC #LICIPO
मग ही सरकारी कंपनी आयपीओनंतर प्रायव्हेट झाली तर तिचा कारभार कसा चालणार? जे नवे लोक एलआयसीमध्ये इन्व्हेस्टमेंट करतील त्यांच्या कंपनीकडून असलेल्या अपेक्षा वेगळ्या असल्या तर काय करायचे? असे काही प्रश्न या निमित्ताने उभे राहतील.
#म #मराठी #LICIPO
१. सरकार आपला हिस्सा किती आणि कसा कमी करणार?
आयपीओच्या नियमानुसार सरकारला एलआयसीमधील कमीत कमी ५% हिस्सा कमी करावा लागेल. कंपनीचे लिस्टिंग झाल्यावर दोन वर्षात आणखी १०% आणि नंतर पुढच्या पाच वर्षात २५% पर्यंत हिस्सा कमी करावा लागेल.

1/n Trying a thread on where I will be looking for the next #corporategovernance lapse in India after #ILFS #yesbank #NSE . What exactly to look for is as important as what not to look for
2/n Do not differentiate between promoter driven or professionally run organisation. Remember while #Ranbaxy was promoter driven #ILFS was professionally run
3/n do not get over cautious on real estate , infra - remember India’s major corporate governance lapses happened in ‘clean’ sectors such as IT, Financial services, pharma - the fallen angels came from holier than though segments

LIC IPO- Biggest is not the right word!

The government is expected to raise >75,000 Cr by selling part of its stake in the insurance behemoth LIC.

The issue size is so big that even the word big does not seem to capture the essence of how big it is!

A thread by Bhaskar & me. Image
Some numbers to put things in context-
1. The biggest IPO yet was by One97 Communications (Paytm), which raised just about 18,000 Cr; LIC IPO size is at least 4x.

2. The mutual funds SIP flows/month are upwards of 9,000 Cr; LIC hopes to raise >8x of this amt in 2 days!
3. There are 10 Indian states whose budget size is less than the LIC IPO size.

Thread on #LICIPO and valuation

1 Brief assessment from my hospital bed on LIC valuation based on DHRP filed with SEBI on Feb 13. The Govt plans to offload 5% of its stake, no fresh issue of shares. This means 31.625 crore shares will be offered for sale.
2. The real meat of the DHRP, which is relevant for the valuation of #LICIPO, is the section on the calculation of the Indian Embedded Value (IEV).
3. Most strikingly, the IEV at the end of Sept 2021 was Rs. 5.397 lakh crores, an increase of a whopping 465 % over the IEV computed for March 2021, just 6 months earlier!

Thread on #LICIPO

Based on forthcoming series on #LIC in @newsclickin
Part 1 - on valuation

1 India’s biggest-ever IPO will rest on what is determined to be #LIC’s Embedded value (EV). It promises to be the mother of all privatisation scams.
2 The notion that the EV of an insurance company captures its true worth is being cited as gospel. Nothing could be farther from the truth, for 2 reasons: a) as a measure the EV suffers from serious problems, because of the kind of assumptions/ methodologies it adopts
3 b) the EV ignores the specific characteristics of #LIC as a financial institution, sui generis in the world of finance. Nothing like it exists anywhere in the world. In my forthcoming article I examine how on both counts the valuation exercise would undervalue its real worth.

🧵on Relative Strength Index (RSI), one of the widely used Indicator in technical analysis by traders.

I am sharing:
1. Intro and the birth of RSI
2. What info RSI indicates
3. Application of RSI with chart patterns
4. Support/Resistance in RSI
5. Range Shift
6. Divergence
2/n
The concept of RSI was first introduced in the book “New Concepts in Technical Trading Systems.” By J. Welles Wilder Jr. Most of us get so attracted to the indicator itself we forget to study the background of Scientists and how the indicator got its life.
3/n
Understanding the psychology of the researcher is way more important than the indicator itself. Because indicator is the reflection of researcher’s personality and what they are looking into the markets (and charts).
