Jump to:navigation, search

SME stands for Small and Medium Enterprises.

Small companies but hard working companies can tap the capital market by getting themselves listed in the SME segment of the stock exchanges first before growing up and moving to the main segment of the stock market.

Like other type of Equity shares, SME companies come to the capital market in the form an Initial Public Offer (IPO).

The IPO of SME companies is called an SME IPO.

Investing in SME stocks is suitable for high risk investors only because of several factors.

Very little data of the company will usually be available in the public domain. This means that fundamental analysis of the company is very difficult.

Very little promoters discloses will be possible and this means that tracking performance of the company is difficult.

The companies are usually very small and adverse business conditions will impact these companies a lot.

The equity base being offered for trading and investing will be low.

Investing in these scripts is done in lot size multiples and hence requires high capital.

Trading in SME is even more riskier because it is not continuous and time slots are allotted for trade.
