Most of you will not be offered an allocation in Groupon because you keep accounts at Zeeco and are literally nobody on Wall Street. However, there is a conduit to get in on all of these hot privately held names, even before the ipo fuckers get an allocation. The solution to your piker problems lies in the shares of GSVC.
Per GSVC’s 10q:
GSV Capital’s current portfolio provides exposure to investments in venture capital backed private companies including Bloom Energy Corporation, Chegg, Inc., Facebook, Inc., Gilt Groupe, Inc., Groupon, Inc., Kno, Inc., Serious Energy, Inc., SharesPost, Inc., Silver Spring Networks, Inc., TrueCar, Inc., Twitter, Inc., ZoomSystems and Zynga, Inc.
Since then, the company raised another $30 million and is in a position of strength to make additional investments. My best hunch, they take a piece of Yelp next.
Bottom line: the stock price of GSVC trades like shit, with low volume and little momentum. However, if the ipo market opens up to the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Zynga and Gilt, that is going to change quickly.If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
