fundamentally weak… ready to crash stocks… in your portfolio today.
Because many stock brokers have painted rosy pictures of these stocks. But the reality is starkly different.
If the market crashes, then these stocks could wipe out your wealth.
You should get rid of these stocks as soon as possible.
Both Magic Moments Dazzle and Royal Ranthambore will be available in select stores in Delhi, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Goa, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Haryana in the first phase of launch.

Speaking of the current stock market scenario, note that the BSE smallcap index has surged more than 180% since the crash in March 2020.
Despite the index being up more than 1.8 times, Richa Agarwal, lead Smallcap Analyst at Equitymaster, believes smallcap stocks are set for a massive up move in 2021 and beyond.
The Smallcap to Sensex ratio, a metric referred to get a sense of relative valuations, currently stands at 0.48 times. To be sure, this is higher than a median of 0.43 times.
And yet, it’s the lowest of all the peaks in the smallcaps so far. In the last cycle which peaked in January 2018, when the ratio touched 0.49, the peak was still 9 months away.
Here’s what Richa wrote in one of the editions of Profit Hunter…
- When it comes to buying smallcap stocks, especially at this point in the rebound rally, you will need a bottom up approach, and a long term horizon.
In fact, if you don’t have the stomach to withstand a 20%-30% kind of corrections and volatility, this space may not be for you at all. And you should stop reading right here.
Moving on to news from the IPO space…
Blackstone may get 5x returns on Fino Investment
US private equity (PE) major Blackstone Group is likely to make more than five times return on its investment in Fino Payments Bank when the latter goes ahead with its public listing planned for next month.
The Navi Mumbai-based scheduled commercial bank is a fully-owned subsidiary of Fino Paytech, which is backed by marquee investors such as Blackstone Group, Mauritius-based Headland Asian Ventures Fund 3 (HAV 3 Holdings), Intel Capital, World Bank unit and global development finance institution international finance corporation (IFC), ICICI Group and Bharat Petroleum (BPCL).
The decision on shareholding dilution will be decided by November.
New York-headquartered Blackstone Group had first invested Rs 1.5 bn (approximately US$33 m) in Fino Limited, now Fino Payments Bank, for a significant minority stake in July 2011.
With an expected valuation of Rs 53 bn for the upcoming initial public offering (IPO), its 15.13% stake in the company is now valued at more than Rs 8 bn.
Thus, the investor is set to make annualized returns of close to 18% with its initial investment growing by more than 5.3 times.
Besides, Fino has already expressed its intent of looking to raise a pre-IPO round and a rights issue of Rs 750 m at the holding company level (Fino Paytech).
According to a media report, the proceeds of this rights issue will go to a microfinance subsidiary, Fino Finance.
If the listing goes ahead as planned, it will be the third IPO for a Blackstone portfolio company this year after Sona Comstar and TaskUS.
How this pans out remains to be seen. Meanwhile, stay tuned for more updates from this space.
