    Shares of quick-service restaurant chain Burger King India were locked at a lower circuit of 10 percent on Monday as investors continued to book profit on the stock after a sharp surge in prices post its listing.
    At close of trade, Burger King India shares ended at Rs 150.15 apiece on the NSE, down 10 percent. The counter was overwhelmed with a total of 6,98,451 pending sell orders.
    Interestingly, the counter recorded a total volume of 1.45 crore shares of which 1.08 crore or 74.15 percent are marked for delivery trades. Of the last 12 trading sessions, the stock has fallen in 9 sessions while it gained marginally in the remaining three.
    Burger King India's stock price has corrected over 42 percent from an all-time high of Rs 213.80. However, even after such a huge correction, the stock is still offering 150 percent return from its issue price of Rs 60 per share.

    The Rs 810 crore-initial public offering (IPO) of Burger King India had received an overwhelming response and was subscribed 156.65 times. It received over 1,100 crore bids compared to 7.45 crore shares on offer.
    Analysts are of the view that the stock price may continue to witness profit booking in the short term and it may correct more from the current level as anchor investors' 30-day lock-in period from the date of allotment is over.
    However, experts are optimistic about the long-term prospects of the company and believe it deliver better performance going ahead.
    "Looking at the current run rate, we believe management will be able to achieve the target of 700 stores by Dec’26. As the store count will increase, operating leverage will kick in and the company will report better margins," said Keshav Lahoti, Associate Equity Analyst, Angel Broking.
    Lahoti believes there is ample scope available for the company to increase its business in India.
    "The long term prospects of the company are promising," he added.
