  1. what is your view on IVRCl and IVRCL asset merger?

    do you recommend a buy on IVRCL asset for long term and convet them into IVRCL shares.

    IVRCL is trading at discount comapred to IVRCL asset.
    Your views please.

    -thanks in advance

    Thanks for visiting and commenting on the post...
    In my view IVRCL still has weak fundamentals even after merger it will face difficulties in servicing its debts and As I am not bullish with Infra space (except some exceptions) for at least till 2013, I would say just be out of these twins...
    I am with fundamental thinking so will not comment on why these twins went up insanely, but on fundamental side I dont agree with this kind of move on this kind of stock..
