Let’s Whore Through the IPO Market, Shall We?

1,271 views

I am really pissed off to have missed out on the LITB run. If I was a chinese male, I’d likely boil a dog for dinner.

Let’s not waste time with small talk, friendo. There are things to do, people to talk to, and money to snatch. Instead of giving you bozos are long list of stocks that you’re never going to research, I am going to give you just three.

What you do with these three securities is entirely up to you.

ICEL
CTRL
FLTX

Pick one and shut up about it.

  1. CTRL doesn’t come up as a ticker symbol on finviz lol…

  2. $ICEL above 11.44 should rocket higher.

  3. Fly here’s a major idea for you: Short PNRA

    momentum name that has run out of juice and is now going to get crushed as health consciousness takes over and people want salads not bread. Look around the city they pay double the rent and have have as much business as their competition

  4. The hypothetical subjunctive should be used in the second sentence (e.g. “was” should be conjugated “were”). Think Beyonce’s hit title, “If I were a boy” rather than Bieber’s asinine “If I was your boyfriend”.

    Please don’t block me for my dissent, Fly. I acknowledge your genetic superiority and bow down to those who out earn me. Should I ever spot your car in Mexico City, I will wash your windshield for free.

  5. CTRL- Home automation story, much less expensive software package vs. competitors and is easily customizable. No need to pay for professional programmer to make any adjustments. Essentially opens up the market so all high-net-worth homeowners can install the system rather than just the 0.001% who have $600k to burn on a system they won’t know how to use. Simple GUI interface allows even flyaway18 to make sure his HVAC system turns on to 69, Bravo channel records his show, and his microwave starts cooking his hot pocket a half hour before he figures out how to google tickers.

    • And how big is the “high-net-worth homeowners” market? Bah humbug. The home automation market is nowhere near ready with an accessible and reasonably priced system. All we have now are niches (Nest, Lockitron), the ancient X-10 stuff and high end vendor systems (Control4, Crestron). This market will explode when I can go to my local Home Depot and pickup components myself. Bonus points to the company that sells an open source type solution. Had high hopes for Google’s Android@Home but it never materialized.

  6. I love my Nest and will be stalking the CTRL. Jetson houses FTW

  7. IPOs are my favorite trading vehicle, which is why I wish J could figure out a way to pick them up and put them in the PPT on the very first day they come out. And don’t worry LITB will come in again and you can take a crack at it!

    • The iPos are entered day 1, with my own hand.

      What do you mean? How can we make it better?

      • Yes, you’re correct. i didn’t state it correctly. What I would like to see is an IPO screen that starts as soon as they are public. Currently, the screen starts at 1 year and views anything under a year as an IPO but misses the brand new ones. I usually start trading tjese by the third day.

        • In other words, right now the IPO screen says has 1 year of data. I’d like to be able to have the flexibilty to make it say has 1 day, 2 days, 1 week, 1 month, or whatever I want to look at. Thanks!

      • Gotta get in pre-IPO and flip them the day they open to public.

  8. I love vacations and have built a nice position in DRII.

  9. ICEL needs to sit down with ONVO..

  10. Stem cells? Pass. Home automation? Pass. Fleet management? Hit me. Grabbing FLTX ahead of earnings.

  11. Z buy it hard

  12. NNVC (nano) is running on high volume.

  13. thoughts on SCTY today? anyone holding through earnings

  14. Hey fly, I have a question for you regarding IPOs. Are you able to get into IPOs at the IPO price? Do you know what it takes to be able to get in on them (relationship with underwriter and $ in account)? I am not talking about the really hot ones, like FB, but just standard IPOs like SFM.

    • You need to be considered an “eligible brokerage” customer to get in on IPO allocations, which means you need to have a fairly large amount of assets parked at your brokerage ($100k+ usually) or some brokerages just require that you’ve done x amount of trades with them over the last year. Either way, the slice of the pie that the retail investor group as a whole is generally small relative to the % of the deal allocated to institutions/hedge funds/mutual funds because they pay the i-banks the most in commission fees. Talk to your broker about it, but just be careful, they usually make a higher commission off selling you IPO shares, and if a deal is not being well received by the institutions, the banks will dump it on retail investors because they don’t really care if they piss off some doctor from Ohio vs. a hedge fund paying them millions in commissions every year. Any deal that breaks IPO price on day 1-3 (happens maybe 10%-20% of the time) usually means that the institutions/long-only investors didn’t have any interest, which usually leads to hedge funds dumping it when they don’t see a pop, leaving the retail investor holding the bag. (FB being an exception because of how massively up sized the banks made that deal prior to trading).
