The Best Way to Profit Before the November 2017 IPOs Hit the Market

[mmpazkzone name="in-story" network="9794" site="307044" id="137008" type="4"]

Money Morning Director of Technology & Venture Capital Research Michael A. Robinson doesn't believe retail investors should invest in overhyped IPOs.

At first, the biggest gains are always made by insiders, like big banks and wealthy hedge funds, who can buy in at the discounted IPO offering price before the general public.

"I generally tell retail investors to avoid buying an IPO at the open because the insiders have already made all the money available at the debut," Robinson said.

However, we have one strategy that lets you safely profit from the hype these IPOs create without the risk that can come with buying at the IPO price.

Robinson advises investors to purchase an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that mimics the broader market for IPOs. It's the First Trust U.S. Equity Opportunities ETF Fund (NYSE Arca: FPX).

Because FPX is an ETF, retail investors can buy and sell it just like a stock.

And because FPX holds a mix of recent IPOs, it's diversified. That makes it less risky than owning just one stock.

Because FPX owns more of PayPal Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: PYPL) (7.43% of its holdings) than Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP) (1.10% of its holdings), for example, it balances out the risk of IPOs. If FPX just owned shares of SNAP, FPX would be down 37.21% so far in 2017. But the PYPL stock price is up 84.15% so far in 2017, and it accounts for a much larger position than Snapchat.

According to, FPX's holdings include the 100 largest and most recent U.S. public offerings.

It currently holds IPOs that rolled out over the last several years, including Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP), Match Group Inc. (Nasdaq: MTCH), and Blue Buffalo Pet Products Inc. (Nasdaq: BUFF).

And it also holds newly spun-off companies like AbbVie Inc. (NYSE: ABBV).

This structure lets you profit from IPOs and new public companies without the risk of owning just one stock. And for investors looking to outperform the market with safe investments, FPX is beating the Dow right now.

And because, in the fund's summary, it says it typically holds the "best-performing and most liquid U.S. public offerings," it takes away the guesswork of trying to time IPO price swings. FPX simply aims to own the best-performing companies.

This year, FPX has climbed 21.51%. In comparison, the Dow is up only 18.28% in the same time.
