The IPO lock-in period for these 11 stocks is expiring in November. What should you do now? Buy, Hold or Sell?

Watch out for these stocks as their lock-in period nears its end.

Stocks to watch out for as lock in period expires

Many pre-IPO lock-ins are ending in November, and we expect an ample share supply to hit the stock market. As per SEBI, original investors purchasing a company's shares in pre-IPO issues have a six-month lock-in period. The duration was one year earlier, and the new rule was implemented starting April 1, 2022. Investors will witness expiry in lock-ins of both six months and 12 months. Previously only Domestic Institutional Investors (DIIs), Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs), and High Net-worth Individuals (HNIs) could invest in pre-IPOs. However, retail investors can now invest in it. A retail investor can invest only up tp Rs. 2 lacs in an IPO, and there is no pre-IPO limit. We have witnessed stocks come under pressure upon lock-in expiry due to an oversupply. We expect these stocks to have a correction.
