Investors have described the forth-coming float of Dick Smith Electronics as opportunistic for sellers and risky for potential buyers.

Fund Managers have questioned just how much could have been changed in such a short period of time and are cautious on a valuation multiple that is likely to match that of JB Hi-Fi.
