Nykaa IPO GMP today

Nykaa IPO GMP showed a high jump today is at a premium of Rs 650 – Rs 675

Is Nykaa IPO price overpriced?

Calculating with its upper price band of Rs 1,125

Now, the EPS (earning per share) for the FY21 is 1.34 so the P.E ratio (price to earnings ratio) comes at 1125/1.34 = 839X

And, the EPS for Q1 FY22 EPS is Rs 0.07 so the P.E ratio comes at 1125/0.07 = 16071x but when we annualize it 16071/4 = 4018x it is the annual P.E they are asking for FY22

So, they are asking P.E between 839x to 4018x which is too much, thus Nykaa IPO is overpriced

My personal view is to avoid this IPO and think for investment only if it shows consistent growth
