Should you invest?
The company has huge domain expertise coupled with high operating margins and R&D, but its inconsistent performance, small market size, no alternate source of funds and its high growth rate indicates that the aggressive investor should only invest in this IPO.
Moreover, the primary market is witnessing a steep slowdown and it will gather pace after the election results.
So, if you have a high risk- appetite, invest in it.
