Skype will be going IPO soon. How can I purchase their IPO stock?
- Sign up with a broker that is participating in the IPO. (I don't think that the date is even set yet, so it's probably a little early to check.)
- Read and follow their instructions. Here's E*Trade's IPO center HowTo as a sample.
I imagine you would need a lot of money to enter, and tbh I thought the shares are already allocated, thus ruling out members of the public purchasing any until after the ipo The IPO is the public offering, obviously, and you being a member of the public will have to wait until they are listed ... ?
My answer would be you can't buy stock until after the ipo, until then the company is held privately.
