Will This Canada Goose Honk for Investors?

Dear Fellow Fools,

Ah, the “IPO”.

I wonder how many of us had even heard of such a thing prior to the late ‘90’s when tech IPOs were trumpeted by daily headlines and provided 1,000% opening day moves (based on loose recollection, perhaps a slight exaggeration).

The initials stand for “Initial Public Offering,” and this generally refers to a time in a company’s life when it moves from the world of being privately owned and into the throngs of the oft-eagerly awaiting public markets.  Read More…

    IPOs were really fun in the 90s. No one lost money. You only lost it all if you waited too long. The trick was to buy in, wait a few weeks, and then sell. Profit 🙂
