Ali-ByeBye - Weibo IPO Plunges To Bear Market

Tyler Durden's picture

Just a few brief days ago, Weibo IPO'd "successfully" at the bottom-end of its range ($17) and exploded higher - "proving" that Candy Crush (or take your pick of recent IPO failures) were all one-offs and that 'quality' companies were still in demand. Fast forward 6 days and Weibo just entered a bear-market - down dramatically from its highs over $24 and is nearing its IPO price. There's no data, no news - just selling, in size. Investors stashing cash away for another pop in Alibaba's forthcoming IPO perhaps? Not if market conditions continue to look like this...

The IPO Dream: Get in on the ground floor!  This is a productive, scalable company that adds value in innovative, unique ways in rapidly expanding markets.

The IPO Reality: Here, hold this for me-  [runs away]

Most small companies fail near the beginning. Wall St has figured a way to dump the worthless garbage companies onto suckers and make money along the way.

Alibaba will be the biggest IPO ever....they will make it so...but I think it will be the high water mark for IPOs....then the crash....and the fake numbers will come out...just like 1999....

Weibos wobble and apparently fall down.

But, it has to go to $15 before it can go to $60, or some such bullshit.
