Yelp (NYSE: YELP) kicked off its initial public offering with a bang today. Shares were up 66% in the first half hour of trading after an IPO pricing of $15. The online consumer-reviews site’s IPO priced above its targeted range of $12 to $14 per share suggests strong investor demand to get in on the action.
The offering nets Yelp about $96 million according to the company. However, as with any IPO, investors need to consider the risks. In this case, investors must weigh the fact that Yelp hasn’t turned a profit since its 2004 founding, not to mention the company generated a loss of $16.1 million last year.
Yelp is so overvalued right now, and its challenges such as dealing with tough competitors like Google, its difficulty getting traction outside of categories like shopping and restaurants, and its easy-to-duplicate business model are just a few reasons you won’t catch me buying this stock. Read on for more on this IPO.
I’ve just posted the newest issue of GameChangers on our website and I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read it right away. I have two exciting new recommendations for you that will deliver knock-out profits in the year ahead.
While much of the world’s attention has been focused on Europe over the past year, and China before that, something miraculous has been happening much closer to home. There’s a new Latin America rising. When you think of advanced technologies, Latin America doesn’t quickly come to mind. That’s where you’d be mistaken. Latin American countries have leapfrogged into advanced technologies such as mobile phone payment systems and high-speed wireless, which has resulted in skilled labor forces working in everything from pharmaceutical research laboratories to advanced aircraft design, engineering and production.
We’re going to profit from these trends with my two new recommendations. The first is a company set to become the Costco of Latin America. And the second is a fast-growing Brazilian company that’s doing business around the world—especially in China and emerging markets where demand for their product is skyrocketing. Get the names of these companies and my detailed buy instructions immediately.
Dow 17,000 Realistic?
There’s no denying the Dow closing above the all-important 13,000 mark this week was a big deal. Not to mention the S&P 500 just hit its highest level since June 2008 and the Nasdaq has finally gotten back to where it was in 1991 before the tech bubble. What does this all mean? It’s time to get off the sidelines and position yourself to profit form the market’s next big leg up. While I think Dow 17,000 is a stretch, I do think this rally is going to take us to Dow 14,000 and the time to position yourself is NOW. That’s why urge you to get on boardnow and get started with my top fivegame-changing stocks before it’s too late.remaining.
Google, Microsoft and Apple are in a game-changing race to come up with the first talking TV. Just think of the possibilities….
You would no longer need to call for the kids to come and pass you the remote control that’s 3 feet away. You can just instruct your TV to change the channel or find your favorite TV show and presto, it happens. Eventually, your TV may even talk back to you.
At the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this January some of the biggest names in the technology game demonstrated that they are already taking the first steps to make this talking TV a reality. Microsoft demoed interactive episodes of Sesame Street in which viewers spoke to characters and relied on gestures to interact with the show’s characters. Samsung and LG showed off motion-sensing remote controls that feature built-in microphones for voice search and Google showed how its voice input could instruct the TV to show listings of a particular TV show. Even Apple has been rumored to be working on what has unofficially been dubbed as the "iTV"— a TV that could use the iPhone’s Siri technology to find TV shows or channels on demand.
The potential of what Microsoft, Google, Samsung and LG showed at the annual electronics showcase was clear. Read more about this big race that is being fought by these technology leaders.
