How can I purchase Skype stock during the IPO?
I've heard that only big institutional investors will be able to purchase Facebook shares at the Facebook IPO price. A small player like me (I've got an account with Charles Schwab) will have to purchase shares later in the day, after the stock "pops," reducing the chance that I'll benefit from the initial surge in the stock price. Is this true?
Is there any way for a regular guy like me to get in on the Facebook IPO?
