Arihant Capital Markets: “Investors with a slightly high risk-appetite can consider investing in the offer as the track record of the ETF has been good and it holds promise of good returns in future. Additionally listing gains are expected to occur as there is quite a roar about the issue in the market amongst retail investors given its previous track record”
India Infoline: “The underlying shares—the stocks that form the CPSE ETF—are trading at a much lower Price to Earnings (PE) ratio and have higher dividend yields, which makes the offer a compelling one. However, since the government policies will have a bearing on the entire basket of the CPSE Index and as the portfolio is heavily skewed towards energy sector, any unfavorable movement in the prices of crude oil, natural gas and coal will negatively impact the returns.Considering all the factors, the CPSE ETF would be suitable for investors with a long term horizon.”
Vidya Bala: Head-Mutual Fund Research; FundsIndia.com : “Since this ETF is almost like a theme fund, one should not expose more than 10-15 per cent of their equity portfolio in this ETF.”
