Hence, at the end of the year, the CAMS left with a strong cash flow which CAMS uses to pay a generous dividend to a shareholder. Historically it has maintained a dividend payout ratio of 65%. An INvestor can expect a similar dividend payout in the future also. We have given SUBSCRIBED rating considering Market leader, strong financials, and healthy dividend payout policy.

On Spot gold intraday technical outlook, the brokerage said Prices continue to trade in a tight range of $1880-1975 an ounce. As long as prices hold the support of $1880 expects recovery momentum for the day. However, a direct drop below the same would continue the liquidation pressure towards $1840 or even more.

11.00 AM: Nifty outlook

As per Geojit Financial, "While a collapse is less expected, initial pull back to 11370-11410 is likely to attract liquidation pressure with 11170 in perspective. It would, however, require more confirmation before playing the 10800-10500 view. Until then, the 11170-11000 region is favoured to diffuse the bearish momentum."

-Keshav Lahoti, Associate Equity Analyst, Angel Broking said," Chemcon Speciality Chemicals IPO was subscribed by 12.62 times on the second day of issue. Retail portion was most subscribed by 22.94 times. Due to over subscription in such a big number, most of the retail investors will be disappointed as they won't get a single lot. Non institutional and QIB were subscribed 3.50 and 1.37  times respectively. Such oversubscription was in line with our expectation, as we believe a lot is left on the table for the investors by comparing its valuation with other speciality chemical companies. We are positive on the future outlook for the industry as well as the Company, so in our IPO Note we have recommended to Subscribe to the issue for long term as well as for listing gains.

Due to its position as leading manufacturer of its products globally, it is getting strong traction among investors. But, product concentration and client concentration risk cannot be ruled out. Although Company clients are sticky in nature, they have long standing relationships. Aurobindo Pharma has been its client for more than 20 years.
