Paytm Share Price Nears INR 1,400 With 1.4% Rise Post 7.7% Slump

On Wednesday, its shares fell as much as 13% after the lock in period for anchor investors ended

Since its weak listing on November 18, Paytm shares have been through a roller coaster ride touching an all-time high of INR 1,961.05 and a low of INR 1,271.25 per share

In November, One97 Communications reported a 63.6% increase in its revenue from operations during the July-September quarter at INR 1,086.4 Cr

Shares of fintech decacorn Paytm recovered today (December 16th) after falling 7.7% in its previous session.

According to analysts, the rise in share price was largely due to the purchase of shares by investors at lower prices. 

The fintech giant’s shares on the BSE closed at INR 1,399.30, higher by INR 19.25 or 1.39% from its previous close.

On Wednesday, its shares declined as much as 13.22% as the lock-in period for anchor investors ended. The shares, however, somewhat recovered from their intra-day low level on Wednesday to end at 7.7% lower at INR 1,380.05.

The end of the lock-in period is generally expected to result in the decline of share prices.

Tradingo founder Parth Nyati had noted that Paytm is finding buying interest at lower levels. However, INR 1,700 may act as a resistance level and the shares may remain in the INR 1,300 – INR 1,700 range until the market determines its right value.

Since its weak listing on November 18, shares of Paytm have been through a roller coaster ride touching an all-time high of INR 1,961.05 and a low of INR 1,271.25 per share.
