Shares of IKIO Lighting (IKIO) hit a new high of Rs 477.15, surging 7 per cent on the BSE in Friday's intra-day trade, in an otherwise subdued market, after making strong listing last week.

On June 16, the stock of the consumer electronics company made market debut with a 42 per cent gain. With today's rally, the stock has zoomed 67 per cent over its issue price of Rs 285 per share.

IKIO is an integrated player providing original design manufacture (ODM) services in the LED lighting segment. LED lighting contributes around 87 per cent to overall revenue.

The institutional investor portion was subscribed 163.06 times, the high net worth individual (HNI) portion was subscribed 65.38 times, and the retail institutional investor (RII) portion by 14.31 times.

"Considering the company's strong focus on research and development (R&D), backward integration, well-established relationship with clients, and the company's consistent financial performance, we suggest investors to hold this share for a longer period by keeping a stop loss 10 per cent below its listing price," said Anubhuti Mishra, Equity Research Analyst at Swastika Investmart.
