Have you bought shares in a company in an IPO?
It is quite common for the share price to rise immediately after an IPO. I have heard the opinion that it may not be a bad idea to take advantage of this with a bracket order. I am wondering if anyone has experience with this.

I'm also attaching an interesting figure (note, it's as of 3/13/2023) that compares the market capitalization of the 20 largest tech companies that had IPOs after 2020.
This shows us that investing in an IPO has its risks.

I am already watching the IPO today and I am also waiting. I won't lie though and yes I also got burned when I started investing and didn't have that information, experience yet, I took the IPO as an advantage, it's new, it will grow, well and yes it's not most of the time. (sometimes maybe it is) ... on Coinbase I also got burned, I got a purchase for 86$.🤦‍♂️ I'm holding on though, I guess I got used to the slump and other titles kind of wiped it out. But I believe that if they can withstand the courts and can function with increasing regulations, when BTC grows again, they will too.

Unless some better competition comes along, she could get to that 86. A lot of investors have paid the price for Coinbase.

Competition so I believe it will always be Binance, otherwise yes, a lot of people wanted to have something related to crypto. Well we'll see, I understand regulation because people are just the way they are and the idea of non-state money is hard to do, but as a sort of alternative I believe in BTC so hopefully it will improve over time.

I have only traded the Coinbase IPO and there has been that scenario where the stock just plunges to new lows since the IPO. Fortunately they were quick scalping option trades and even though they didn't all work out, it wasn't as bad as if I had bought the stock and held it until today.

I believe at the time of the IPO it seemed like a great opportunity. So I'm glad I wasn't there.

It was FOMO and it was a crypto bull run. Now it seems to me that no one is even barking at them and they are happy to survive.

Yep $QS+4.9% right after the IPO, good experience to avoid FOMO even though I avoided the biggest one and reacted quite early by not buying at a higher price so at the peak when I was over 200% plus I didn't sell anything and then just watched the downside and averaged down. Anyway, I'm holding a few thousand shares currently minus 50% with the goal that if it eventually works out I'll buy the Porsche QS inside and if not I'll write it off. Since then I keep trying 🚀/⚰️ale in smaller amounts and most of it goes into ETFs😂

Wow, that was a roller coaster. Fingers crossed! 🚀

I bought Coinbase and I still regret it a bit... :-D

That's where I think a lot of people got caught up in the truth. It was hype and FOMO both on the crypt and here. I guess a lot of people are sticking with you, but if crypto goes up again, maybe there will be better selling prices on Coinbase too.

I managed to average the original price to some $71 so I believe I'm "out" on the first real bull run... but honestly, it's a great school for me until the next IPO... as you say. FOMO was big there and I was practically buying minutes right after the IPO...

I've never bought in an IPO... just because of the initial hike, I'd rather wait.

No, I'd rather wait and see the results before I invest.

That's reasonable. Before the IPO, the company is mainly advertised only in a good light, time will tell.
