Stock performance in Tel Aviv.

I was researching the intriguing ‘PinterestIPO when this caught my eye. I knew exactly who they were. So, I had to do a bit of investigating.

Wow. Their stock performance in Israel has not been stellar — and that is saying it kindly.

I would NOT touch this U.S. IPO. The stock, in Israel, right now, seems to be on a downward trajectory.

Also seems a bit late in the day to do an U.S. IPO. They went public in Israel 12-years ago!

During ‘dot.com’ I did a ton of work for a number of Israeli high-tech companies. Great folks to work with, but I kind of learnt one thing. It is not easy for outsiders to make money in Israeli companies. Yes, of course, there are exceptions.

This one does not fill me with optimism. But, you can check it out.

“CarGurus” IPO, On October 12, 2017, Only Good For Those Lucky Enough To Have $16 IPO Shares.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and study. From “MarketWatch”.


I had read, prior to the open (on Thursday, October 12, 2017), that the IPO shares had been re-priced at $16 — higher than the original $15 ceiling.

Given what happened to the SWICH IPO last week, I didn’t even bother to check CARG during the day. I was kind of busy.

Well it appears that I didn’t miss much.

It opened at $29 which meant that there must have been a huge backlog of demand at the start. So a very nice 81% pop for those that had $16 shares. Wonder how many of them got a chance to sell.

But, the trend appears to have been a downward drift from the initial enthusiasm.

I will have to keep an eye on it.

“CarGurus”, The Car Buying/Selling Portal, Is Scheduled To Have An IPO ~October 12, 2017.

by Anura Guruge


Click image (which I think is NH) to access their Website/Portal.


Pretty decent introduction to IPO in “Xconomy.com”. Click image to access original.


They advertise heavily on Willow TV — on which I watch my daily cricket. Hence my familiarity with them. The ads and their message seems pretty compelling. I have yet to use them. No car buying plans in the near future (I hope).

Plus, I like their name! {Smile}

I then saw that they were up for an IPO — next week, the tentative date, next Thursday, October 12, 2017. The price is anticipated to be around $14 (i.e., same as Roku).

They are profitable and that might make them unusually attractive.

Fidelity is not offering any IPO shares. Damn (not that I would get any).

I am going to keep an eye on this IPO. This one could be v. interesting.

A very nice pop. Those that were lucky enough to get in at $14 must, obviously, be very happy. Good for them.

Let’s see if the enthusiasm persists two weeks from now. No my watchlist.

The Roku IPO Is Scheduled For Thursday, September 28, 2017 — $12 – $14 Range.

I have to confess that though a HUGE fan of Roku, I had NOT heard of the Roku IPO until this morning — and that from MarketWatch, a Website I frequent incessantly!

I am no longer BIG on IPOs. I, personally, haven’t made any money on an IPO in ages. So, I no longer get too excited.

At $12 to $14, the Roku IPO price seems ‘interesting’. So, I will keep an eye on it tomorrow morning. It is supposed to get priced tonight, i.e., September 27, 2017. IF it shoots up, it, like so many other tech IPOs of late, is most likely to come down 20% within the month! I will keep you appraised. Do not sweat. That is what and why I am here.



8pm, Wednesday, September 27, 2017.

Roku has set the IPO price at $14 — the maximum that had been previously muted. Hhhmmm.

Thursday’s opening will tell.

Heard Of IAMXU & CIC.U, Recent IPOs Planning To Acquire Startups!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE and read here. From ‘GlobeNewswire’.


Click to ENLARGE. From ‘MarketWatch’.


Just happened to hear about them, fleetingly, on CNBC on Monday morning, i.e., September 11, 2017.

They actually call themselves ‘Blank Check Companies‘. They did an IPO and raised $50 Million — which isn’t much. What they now plan to do is to, in effect, do a reverse merger. Enable a ‘start-up’ to go public without the hassle and risk of an IPO.

At $10/share it is tempting. They could hit big. I might have to have a flutter.

Just letting YOU know.

“Shake Shack” Adds Chicken To The Menu With “Chick’n Shack” — Yes, Yes, Yes.

by Anura Guruge


chickenshak


Though I have only, as yet, managed to eat at a ‘Shake Shack‘ once, and that was a couple of weeks ago when we were in New York, I have been shareholder of the ‘SHAK‘ since more or less the IPO — and today, as I heard on CNBC, with SHAK the bell ringers for the market open, was the one year anniversary. With the stock in the dumps (even more so than others) I am all in favor of anything to further improve the financials though to be fair the financials are not bad and from what we saw, the restaurants are mobbed.

I am in SHAK for the long haul. I am now writing options against the shares and that alone is beneficial. But adding chicken to go with the vegetarian ‘Shroom Burger is good. Love it. Can’t wait to go again.

I am happy.
