Mahindra Finance NCD: Assessment :
- This year budget has given a fresh impetus to rural economy and MMFSL is likely to benefit from the same.
Mahindra Finance has a distinguished past & support of M&M group provides it a good degree of dependability and financial strength.
Even though the offered rate of Interest is slightly lower than YTM of already listed MMFSL NCDs (Mahindra Finance NCD) and some other companies, trading in NCDs is not in large volumes and one can buy in bulk only in new offers or maximum at the time of listing. Hence new offers receive good response whereas the NCD on listing may trade lacklustere or even at a slight discount.This NCD however at 7.95% coupon is not very attractive.
Due to its size & Group reputation, Mahindra NCD issue have in the past evoke evoked good interest & also subsequent liquidity. This NCD with coupon rate of 7.95% / 8.05% may not be that attractive.
Suitable for persons who are in low tax bracket & retiring persons. Not suitable for those in higher tax bracket bracket.
Those desirous of allotment in Mahindra Finance NCD should apply early as issue is on first come first basis.
Upfront sharing of brokerage by the broker may increase the yield
Immediate Listing gain could be marginal to Nil and a lower listing cannot be ruled out in Mahindra Finance NCD and is a more likely outcome.
- 8% GOI Taxable bonds(RBI Bonds) Click Here for Details which are still offering 8% annual interest for a six year period is a much safer option.
- Iam not applying in this NCD and may buy these NCds if they trade at reasonable discount on listing.
