CCCL is a good mix of play on construction and engineering space. Investment Guru is of the view that the company has good growth potential given the visibility into its earnings based on 2000 crore order book, good management pool and its move towards high margin businesses. However, the IPO has been priced quite aggressively and the quantum of listing gains depends on the state of markets at the time of listing. Investment Guru expects moderate listing gains on listing.
