In High-Profit IPO Strategies, IPO expert Tom Taulli explains all facets of IPO investing and trading, with a particular emphasis on the industries that are fueling the next generation of IPOs, from social networking and cloud computing to mobile technology.
So in my book, I want to help make your IPO investing a success and catch the next big waves of innovation. To this end, there are four main parts. Part One covers the fundamentals, such as the IPO process and how to obtain shares. Next, we do a deep dive into strategies and research. This includes covering online resources like EDGAR and RetailRoadshow. We also look at how to interpret the S-1 document—spotting the risk factors and analyzing the financial statements.
There’s even coverage of short selling. Unfortunately, there are still many lackluster IPOs, but you can short them to make a tidy profit. Part Three covers the many sectors of the IPO market. These include technology, biotech, financial services, retailers, energy operators, and real estate investment trusts (REITs). We also look at how to invest in foreign companies. Let’s face it—there are many growth opportunities in global markets.
The final part of the book looks at specialized transactions, such as spin-offs. There is also coverage of the emerging area of secondary markets. Essentially, these allow you to buy shares in pre-IPO companies.
Throughout the book, I cover a variety of short-term investment strategies. While they can be good for decent gains, I think these can miss the big picture, though. Getting the big gainers often means holding on to a stock for several years. Just imagine if you had sold Amazon or Microsoft in the early days. If so, you would have missed out on massive profits.
