The biggest stock market winners typically make their major price moves within a few months or years of their initial public offering (IPO). So it pays to identify and track companies that are getting ready to go — or have recently gone — public.
What Is An IPO?
An initial public offering or IPO is when a privately-held company makes its shares available for trading on public markets, such as the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) or Nasdaq.
Going public is a way for a company to raise capital, and can offer opportunities for secondary offerings of shares in the future.
An IPO can also be an opportunity for venture capitalists and other early investors to cash out and take profits. After a lockup period (typically from 90 to 180 days from the initial public offering), employees with vested stock options can also sell their shares on the open market.
