From the perspective of the company in question, this is a powerful way to create capital quickly and generate a buzz as the stock is introduced into global markets. From the perspective of the investor, IPO's and other capital raising ventures provide an exciting and potentially valuable opportunity to buy shares at low prices and get in on the ground floor. Good IPOs could have a huge return on investments. It is hard to pin point a good one because there are many around. Our job at B&B is to find the best for you.
