Lyft IPO price action thread


Well-Known Member

Lyft should be trading here any second and Frankie plans on following the price action closely. I trade using interactive brokers, but you can easily follow the price on yahoo finance or Morningstar, among others. I believe shares will open at $72 giving the company a >$20B valuation. Where do you see the stock initially popping and where do you see it ending the day?

I just logged into my Ally account they won't let me put in an order yet. Not that I am going to I just wondered if I could. Still shows it at $72.00
I don't believe it has begun trading yet. It was supposed to start trading an hour ago, but sometimes there are last minute hangups.

Yeah, like people realizing it’s a scam. :rolleyes:
It is trading at a high multiple to sales at ~13x, but that is not an entirely unheard of valuation. Workday, Adobe, Autodesk all trade for 10-12x sales and Veeva Systems trades for 17.5x sales.

Demand appears to be soft - price continues to trickle down towards $85.

Just started trading up to 86.23 right now.
Shares continue to fade, down to $84. Where does the bleeding stop?

All Techs IPO initially trade very high before completely crashing, is the instability that make then volatile and you wont see it’s real price till next year when I think it should be trading at ~50

Live from my trading account (level 2). As you can see it’s up $9 from IPO price as of now but tanking hard. Unfortunately no options available. I’d love to get my hands on some juicy puts!

Everyone knew the first hour would jump higher and after that first hour it will stabilize some. I suspect somewhere around 2-3 PM to see some heavy volume as it starts getting added to some big funds as part of the portfolio.
