A bit more on open offers..

I had recently written a post on the acceptance ratio in open offers and I got a lot of interesting feedback on the same on the blog as well as on email.
Someone claimed that there is nothing special or interesting in the actual acceptance ratio being so high vis-a-vis the theoretical acceptance ratio. Someone else thought that I have an itch to blog, which is why I have put up a useless post. :-)
Well, everybody has an opinion, which should be respected. But someone also suggested that a bit more details about open offers and the opportunity to earn in them would be helpful. I think thats a very valid suggestion, which is the reason for this post.
Even though I supposedly have an itch to blog, in this case, there is not much need for me to write about it. Kiran has already written on this topic in great detail. I would request that anyone who is interested in knowing more about open offer trades should go through the excellent post by Kiran. Kiran's post also contains a link to a word document, in which he has analysed the open offer in greater detail. Kindly go through the same too, I assure you that it will be extremely helpful.
After going through the same, I think you will appreciate the importance of acceptance ratio in open offers. And why the high actual acceptance ratio is actually such a big deal.
Hope this helped..
Cheers and happy investing!!

Hi Neeraj,

If possible please come up with a post for "Offer for Sale" with reference to any IPO.
I mean, a situation where we have both fresh issue and offer for sale. Ex- Just dial IPO.
