Initial Public Offerings (IPOs)

In recent years, the number of companies “going public,” or selling stock to the public for the first time, has increased dramatically. Investors seeking to profit from these “IPOs” purchase new shares of stock soon after they are issued, hoping that their market value will increase in the near future.
