TATVA ready for some good moves

Tatva Chintan Pharma Chem Limited is a manufacturer of a diverse portfolio of structure Directing Agents, Phase Transfer Catalysts, electrolyte salts for batteries, and Pharmaceutical and Agrochemical Intermediates, and other Speciality chemicals.


Tatva's IPO's QIB was oversubscribed by 185.23 times. Meaning, institutions that planned to buy 50,000 shares got only 269 shares in the allotment. After the IPO Listing, the price dropped by 20.62% obviously due to listing gains enjoyed by retailers. For 11 weeks the share price formed a base and gave good time for big hands to accumulate. On the 12th week the price broke out of the IPO Listing price with huge volumes (the day before & the day after also) Out of 5.29 lac shares traded that day, 3.23 lac were traded in the last 30 minutes. This confirms my hypothesis of the Entry of big hands during the breakout. The price then tested 2 times the IPO listing high and took good support on it.
Tatva's Q2 results also dropped on 22nd October (before 3 big volume days) and the Q2 numbers beat both QoQ & YoY numbers which might be the trigger.
