The flood of initial public offerings (IPOs) continues, with attention now turning to a popular social-media service.
Pinterest (PINS) announced yesterday it would issue 75 million shares for $15-17 each. Based on its 529 million share count, that translates into an overall valuation of $7.9 billion to $8.9 billion. The number immediately raised eyebrows because PINS was valued around $12 billion in the private market 22 months ago.
Still, prices can change quickly in the world of IPOs. Ride-sharing firm Lyft (LYFT), for instance, initially floated a $68 number for each share and then issued its stock $4 higher. It subsequently spiked to $88.60 after trading opened, and then slid back toward the low $70s.
Even before PINS, other technology firms are coming to market. Here are some of the pending names, according to TradeStation’s partner ClickIPO:
