IPOfn Snapshot

When IPOs come public on the Nasdaq, the stocks have a 15 minute period in which the market makers show their hands being either a buyer or a seller of the stock. This only happens once in the life of a Nasdaq company, because no stock is able to trade in this jockeying for position period before the official first time the stock will trade, Between the underwriters and the other market makers that are looking to step in the middle of each trade, the maneuvering that takes place within the 15 minute pre-opening order period is very much like a 3 dimensional chess match. The IPOfn Snapshot captures each move and gives a visual rendition of the movements of the market makers for each stock.

Additionally, there is commentary on the change in market markers quotes. It may be possible to uncover the intentions of how the underwriters will posture themselves in this 15 minute period. We approach each stock as if it is a puzzle with the pieces turned upside down. Our intent is to give the user enough information to hopefully make a better timing decision about buying the stock when it begins to trade.

New Issues News Stories

Other sites give you headlines about IPOs that have filed to come public. We give you the first read on the IPO and what is going to cause the institutions to put their arms around it at the beginning of trading or if they are going to walk away from it. Additionally, you will get detailed information about secondaries that are filing to come public. With the right assessment, there are numerous potential trades that investors can do between the secondary filing and the pricing of the secondaries.

Investor Handicap

Since 1990, has been projecting the opening premiums of IPOs before they come public. Now we give our registered members the ability to call the opening premiums of every IPO we follow in the pre-IPO phase. You can pick whichever IPO you want from the list of upcoming stocks, in fact, you can pick all of them if you wish. You can change your guess as many times as you want on each stock, but the member that is the first to pick the exact opening premium, as dictated by the opening prices by the exchange on the 1st day of trading will be the winner. That status entitles you to 1 month's free service of the individual IPO tools. There is no limit to how many times a member can win. If the exact premium is not chosen, then the closest estimate without going over would be the winning premium.

IPO Pick of the Week

The IPOfn IPO Pick of the Week is an irreverent look at the IPO that is expected to price for the coming week. Unlike most commentary that appears on these stocks from other sources, we do not just do a 'cut and paste' from the prospectus. Our report covers many different categories about what makes the companies tick. Since we do not indicate for any IPO shares, we remain independent and that is reflected in our commentary throughout our product line. When you read these reports, you will have a bit more to consider before buying those IPOs. As with any of our reports, they are to be used only as an additional tool and any decisions to buy or sell securities should be made with the guidance of a brokerage professional.
