Twitter’s Public Now! And What Exactly Does That Mean?

Twitter_Goes_Public___Fast_CompanyThere has been a lot of uproar over Twitter going public. Will our timelines be bombarded with promoted tweets now? What does this mean for the future of Twitter? And some people are asking what the heck does it mean that they are public now?

Let me fill you in….

A Initial Public Offering also known as a IPO is when shares of stock of a formerly private company are now offered to the general public for sale on a securities exchange. Twitter is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) securities exchange.

Each new IPO or stock is issued a ticker symbol to identify the company on the exchange. Twitter’s ticker symbol is TWTR. So, when you are looking for the price per share of this stock, you can use this symbol to quickly identify it.

In Twitter’s IPO they offered 80.5 million shares at $26 a share, which equals around $2.1 billion that will be raised! The funds raised from this IPO will go directly to the company. Another interesting fact is that this IPO will make both of the founders, Ev Williams and Jack Dorsey Billionaires and will introduce 1600 people to the Millionaires club!

What’s your thoughts on the Twitter IPO? Did you buy any shares, or plan to in the future?

Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. no representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. for example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
