Here is lesson from morningstar.com on how to invest in IPO. In US, they have cited the example of Microsoft. Frankly i too, wish i have the foresight to invest in Raffles Education, Ezra, Swiber etc since their IPO.
But the reality is, for every 1 good IPO, there are 9 other lousy ones. How many of us really have the foresight (to pick the right company) and the patience to hold the IPOs for 10, 20 and even 30 years?! and looking at the latest poll results (still in progress) where 45% of you said you will sell the IPO on the first day, no wonder you and i are still punting IPOs and not investing in them. Perhaps i should use change the title of my Blog to Punting in IPOs and sign off my postings with Happy Punting. :)
