Can Anybody Buy An Ipo

Can anybody buy an ipo


So many misconceptions about stock in this thread.

1) no, not anyone can buy the IPO issued shares pre-market. You have to be on the inside/invited.

2) buying after it hits the market is a crap shoot and very volatile.

Just ask the dumbasses that bought PALM. LOL. But don't think you are "buying IPO" after it hits the market, that's ignorant.

3) you can't short an IPO, there is a moratorium on short sales for newly public companies.

4) uncovered short sales are stupid from the get go.

In general never sell short, instead BUY a PUT.

5) if you don't know what a PUT is, you have no business even discussing stocks.

No you didn't. You bought shares after they became traded on the market.
