IPOs are great for either shorting or loading the boat depending on the pricing and the pitch. How do you know which to do? That is what we asked for years when we started investing in the markets and soon grew to understand and know. That is why you come to us right, to get the facts to help provide you the profitable tools to make educated decisions. While we wish we could boast a sure thing but that is about as possible as the Dow Jones hitting 20,000 in 2010 that is why we too evaluate the research available and then trust our gut to swing us in the right direction.
