The Real Yext Stock Price
The IPO offering price is what hedge funds, big banks, and large institutions pay for shares of a new public offering.
For example, Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP) priced its IPO at $17 per share. However, retail investors had to wait until March 2 to purchase shares of SNAP, which opened at $24. SNAP stock closed at $24.48 that day, leaving some retail investors with a tiny profit of 2%.
But the big banks and large institutions were the real winners, netting a profit of 44% in just one day.
And not only do these insiders make the most money, they still profit even when a stock slides...
The Snapchat stock price plummeted to an all-time low of $18.90 per share in intraday trading on March 17. For retail investors who first purchased shares of Snap on March 2, that's a loss of 21.5%.
Of course, insiders were still up over 11% from their original investment of $17.
IPOs are heavily hyped by Wall Street. But when the hype dies down in a matter of weeks or even days, it's retail investors who incur the most losses.
However, there is a safer way to play IPOs that maximizes long-term gains while limiting short-term losses.
In fact, this unique investment strategy has returns of 14.39% in the last 12 months even with shares of SNAP (down 15.84% in 2017) in its holdings.
How's that possible?
