Spotify (grey market, IPO, full listing)

Recommended Posts

We have a pretty big IPO expected on April 3rd for Spotify, and with IG you can speculate on Spotify’s market cap ahead of its IPO with our grey market, as well as trading or investing in the underlying stock once the listing is complete. This is a going to be a slightly different event to a normal IPO. As quoted 

 

"Spotify hasn’t applied for a traditional initial public offering, it has chosen to float via a direct listing. While the outcome for retail investors is largely the same – Spotify shares will be made available to buy and sell on the NYSE – there are some important differences between the two.

 

The biggest of these is that no new shares are being issued, so Spotify isn’t seeking to raise capital from the listing. Instead, existing shareholders will be able to sell their shares to the public for the first time. This means that Spotify doesn’t need to get a bank to underwrite its offering or undertake a lengthy roadshow, cutting down costs. It also means that existing shareholders’ positions aren’t diluted.

 

If the direct listing is successful, then it could convince other tech firms to follow suit. But choosing a direct listing over an IPO brings its own risks – most notably that the lack of a major bank acting as underwriter could bring additional volatility to Spotify’s shares in its early days on the markets."

Spotify has been overshadowed this week unfortunately due to the whole Facebook debacle. Pre ICO earnings are expected on Monday so I'll try and remember to update the community when these are released.

Spotify could be a good buy. Its valued less than its worth and has just released good expectations. Lets see how the ipo does.

 Hi , you can find it by opening the old platform from the dashboard then in 'watchlists' and look under 'popular markets'.

    • Dax and Dow daily chart levels;
    • long NDX in the demo account (posting this here to give it some more emotional commitment...), stop 10625.   some NDX rebound would have been due today without the leak, I guess...  not least due to futures stabilizing after Friday cash close, and strength of recent oscillation pattern...   market being surprised that banks profit from money laundering, sure... probably more surprised they got caught again... if anything...   (plus no banks in NDX)   alternative narrative - for everyone bored by China virus conspiracy theories...: facts:  - lenders (incl. JPM) tightened standards during crisis - see e.g. WSJ May 25th  - mainstream lending facility still has only used 0.3% of capacity (recent Powell statement)  - leak of money laundering records came from FinCEN, a US Treasury unit conspiracy theory: Treasury unhappy with banks' lending reluctance plans to take banks under control - explicitly or implicitly - to boost lending activity. more advanced conspiracy theory: Treasury plans to take banks under control to boost lending activity - to an extent that eventually makes MMT/MP3  seem unnecessary, at which point banks get privatized again...  motivator are of course the banks themselves who profit massively from Fed asset purchases, and are scared of losing said profits if the Fed would start lending to Treasury directly under MMT-motivated MP3...   let me know what you think ...   this is not investment advice..        
    • stop hit - now much lower, no signal..
