Why Pinterest Has “Monster Stock” Potential / Companies / IPOs

By: John_Mauldin

By Justin Spittler

Shares of Pinterest (PIN) soared 27% last week after the company reported third-quarter earnings that crushed analyst expectations.

And I see PINS heading higher in the coming months. In fact, Pinterest has “monster stock” potential. You see, Pinterest is a different kind of social media company. Unlike Facebook (FB) and Twitter (TWTR), Pinterest isn’t a place where people spew negativity, engulf conspiracy theories, or argue about politics.

The Smart Way to Play the Hottest IPO Market in Years / Companies / IPOs

By: John_Mauldin

By Justin Spittler

The biggest software IPO is officially in the books. Two weeks ago, in one of the most hyped events of the year, Snowflake (SNOW) went public.

Snowflake is a data warehousing company. It helps companies better access and make sense of their data. We’ve been “stalking” Snowflake for over a year. And yet, we held off from recommending it to our readers.

There’s nothing wrong with Snowflake’s business. In fact, it’s a phenomenal company. Its customers include some of the world’s most cutting-edge companies, including Adobe (ADBE)Square (SQ)DocuSign (DOCU), and Overstock.com (OSTK).

Not only that, Snowflake is one of the world’s fastest-growing businesses. Its sales have surged an incredible 174% over the past year. That’s faster than Zoom Video (ZM) was growing before it went public.

Use the “Ferrari Pattern” to Predictably Make 431% with IPOs / Companies / IPOs

By: Stephen_McBride

Justin Spittler : Ferrari isn’t used to losing.

Its $250,000+ sports cars are the epitome of luxury, style, and exclusivity. When you see one cruising down the street, most people can’t help but stop and stare.

Ferrari started as a racing company. Founder Enzo Ferrari handcrafted finely tuned speed machines whose sole purpose was to go faster than any other car could.

Winning is in Ferrari’s blood. It has won a record 238 Grand Prix races. Yet recently, Ferrari looked like a loser.

2020 Will Bring 40+ IPOs That Could Double Your Money / Companies / IPOs

By: Stephen_McBride

Justin Spittler writes: Many people think the initial public offering (IPO) market is dead.

If you’ve been reading my essays, you know I specialize in IPOs. And I don’t want to spoil the punchline, but... I love that this rumor has taken hold.

I love that the average guy thinks IPOs are dead. Because it means hunting for big IPO profits is “contrarian.”

And the biggest profits usually flow into the pockets of investors who can think independently of the crowd.

I can tell you with 100% certainty that not only is the IPO market alive and well... 2020 is shaping up to be the “Year of the IPO.”

The Most Successful IPOs Have This One Thing in Common / Companies / IPOs

By: Stephen_McBride

Justin Spittler : Never chase a stock.

That’s the #1 mistake of rookie investors. They fall in love with a stock that has already risen a lot, overpay for it, then end up regretting it.

True pros do the opposite.

They’re patient. They lie in wait, wait for a stock to “come to them”, then buy on a “dip.”

“Don’t chase stocks” is sound advice 95% of the time. But there’s a special kind of stock you absolutely should chase.

In fact, you’re better off buying these special stocks after a 20% or 30% pop than buying after a big selloff.

I know it sounds crazy. It goes against everything most investors have been taught. But I have mountains of data to prove it.

The IPO Market Is Nowhere Near a Bubble / Stock-Markets / IPOs

By: John_Mauldin

Justin Spittler : Who remembers Pets.com?

It launched one of the world’s first online pet stores. It never did sell many dog collars or cat treats. But its witty branding made it a cultural phenomenon in America.

Maybe you remember its goofy mascot from the late 1990s.

The dog sock puppet appeared on Good Morning America. He floated down the streets of New York City during the 1999 Thanksgiving Day Parade. He even got on TV during Super Bowl XXXIV.

How Acquisitions Affect Global Stocks / Companies / IPOs

By: Submissions

If you love to keep up to date with market news or you enjoy reading financial forums, you can’t have missed the fact that waves of excitement travel through the investment community every time a big acquisition is expected. Suddenly there’s lots of speculation about what will happen to stock prices and what will be the right moment to buy or sell. The international nature of today’s market means that big company purchases have repercussions around the clock, keeping investors on their toes. In this fast-paced environment, it has never been more important to understand how acquisitions affect stock prices and what this means for global market movements.

Avoiding Hype-Burn Amidst IPO Stock Mania / ConsumerWatch / IPOs

By: Harry_Dent

Given that we’re in the greatest global bubble in history, almost everything is overvalued. We’re expecting central banks to keep printing money, interest rates to stay near zero, growth to continue “into a plateau of prosperity.” Just like 1929.

Dare us to say: it’s hard to find good value investments out there.

Look at this chart of accelerating IPOs at higher and higher prices, most often from companies that have no or little profits. People are buying into the bubble at prices that companies could not possibly fulfill even in many years, if ever. They don’t call these companies “unicorns” for nothing.

Investing in Uber Is the Worst Thing You Can Do with Your Money in 2019 / Companies / IPOs

By: Stephen_McBride

Uber’s IPO is the biggest IPO since Facebook (FB) went public in 2012.

It marks the first time individual investors can buy this beloved company.

IPOs carry a special allure. Investors dream of “getting in on the ground floor” and riding the stock to 20X–30X profits.

But collecting profits of 20X or better is possible if you identify disruptive stocks early on.

Uber is certainly disruptive. But as I’ll show you, it’s a horrible investment.

UBER IPO Competitively Priced for First Trading Day Gain of 10% to $50 / Companies / IPOs

By: Nadeem_Walayat

UBER has decided to IPO at the lower end of market expectations at $45 per share with a view to raising $82 billion. Priced well below market expectations of $50. Therefore it is highly likely that UBER will have a successful first days trading that could easily see the stock trade higher by 10% to $50 that would value the company at $90 billion.

At Look at IPOs in Digital Advertising / Companies / IPOs

By: Rodney_Johnson

Digital advertising is supposed to be the fuel of the future, funding new companies (#IPOs) that provide us with services we never knew we wanted – Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, etc. – while tearing away at our privacy.

But there’s a problem.

Digital advertising is annoying users, and starting to creep us out.

I don’t want to see ads for lightweight jackets for the next three months just because I searched for one last November.

And by the way, isn’t that a bit backward? If I already bought the jacket, why is it still being marketed to me?

Financial FOMO with Lyft IPO / Companies / IPOs

By: Rodney_Johnson

Biotech in 1990, internet companies in 1999, vacation homes in 2005, cryptocurrencies in 2017. Now the fast money is chasing ridesharing pioneer Lyft, as well as other unicorns (private, money-losing companies valued at $1 billion or more). The Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) can certainly make us look foolish.

My mother warned me about things like this. Something about following friends off a bridge…

LYFT Stock IPO Mania is Wall Street’s Dead Canary / Companies / IPOs

By: Michael_Pento

Recently, Wall Street has been myopically focused on the IPO of a ride-sharing company called Lyft, which by the way, is hemorrhaging money. Since investors have become much less concerned about profits and valuations, this offering was an incredible 20 times oversubscribed. Meaning, the underwriters received $47 billion of orders for Lyft shares but raised $2.3 billion. The company generated $2 billion in revenue last year and lost an incredible $911 billion! Investors rewarded this profligate business model with a market cap of $27 billion.

This is a great example that Wall Street has gone nuts. The Lyft IPO price was $72 per share and shot up to $88.60 on its first day of trading. But the following trading day those shares were down 24% from the high. Indeed, this is emblematic of the dead canary in Wall Street’s coal mine.

Why Spotify Will Likely Surge During Its IPO / Companies / IPOs

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

IPO’s are nothing new to the market. At the end of the day, companies go public all the time. Some of them fly out of the gates, some of them fall dramatically, and others stay relatively flat. However, when it comes to spotify in particular, this thing is likely to soar.

Sure, the company is a strong company, and there’s definitely value here. However, that’s not the primary reason that the Spotify stock price is likely to rocket on the launch of the IPO. The big reason has to do with the unique aspects of the shares that will become available when the IPO goes public. Today, we’ll talk about what’s so unique about the shares that will be sold during the Spotify IPO, why this unique aspect will likely lead to a big spike in value right out of the gate, and what to watch for following the IPO launch.

Wall Street Stock Market Syndicate Still at Work / Companies / IPOs

By: Rodney_Johnson

Maybe they benefited from divine intervention… or maybe they were just lucky. Either way, the students and staff of St. Francis High School in Mountain View, California must be pretty happy right now.

In 2012 the school took a chance, investing $15,000 in a small, little-known app maker called Snapchat. Last week the school sold two-thirds of its shares for $24 million when the stock went public. I’m sure they’re still giving thanks.

The "Hidden" Billions in the Alibaba IPO / Companies / IPOs

By: Money_Morning

William Patalon III writes: How many times have you been reading about a long-ago historical event - or been watching a documentary about it on the History Channel - and thought to yourself: "Wow, it would've been really cool to have actually been there to see this happen."

I couldn't agree more. As a big history buff myself, I find myself making that statement on a regular basis.

But I'll also make this observation: The same folks who get so turned on about events from the distant past are often the last to recognize current developments - what you and I would refer to as "history in the making."
