In the last 1 year IPOs were always oversubscribed so apply just 10 shares. There will be more than 2.2 million applicants for MSLBSL shares and among them just almost 365000 applicants will get the 10 shares each. Therefore, apply just 10 shares. Also, microfinance has great goodwill in the Nepalese Stock Market.

So, if you get the share do not sell early because it might cross Rs. 3000 per share because we saw the history of Mahila Laghubitta. Mahila Laghubitta and Manakamana Laghubitta have similar kinds of financial performance. Currently, Mahila Laghubitta has a Rs 4700 market price so I suggest do not sell early if MSLBSL’s share allotted for you.
