Participation in the IPO of large international companies is now available to private traders. You can use a familiar terminal, for example, Metatrader, to participate in the listing of well-known companies on the stock exchange.
IPO (Initial Public Offering) is the process of selling company shares to an unlimited number of people on the stock exchange. After the IPO, the company becomes public, and investors from all over the world can now make transactions with the shares listed on the exchange.
This is beneficial for companies. They raise investments through the sale of shares. But it is also beneficial for investors, because on the very first day of trading, the prices of purchased shares can rise by tens and even hundreds of percent. A few examples:
Meat substitute maker Beyond Meat sold shares in an IPO for $25 a share. But on the very first day of trading, the price rose to $65.75. +163% profit per day.
Home rental service AirBNB went public at $68, but on listing day, the share price rose to $144.70. Investors earned 112.8% profit for the day.
A manufacturer of vaccines (including coronavirus) CureVAC held its IPO at a price of $16 per share. The first trading session ended at $55.90. 249% return for investors in 1 day.
These are just a few items on the list of successful IPOs, which can be continued for a very long time.
As we have already said, now participation in the IPO is also available to Forex traders. You can select any company preparing for an IPO in your terminal and participate in the placement of shares.
In this article, we have selected a few expected IPOs that could take place as early as 2023.
It seemed to many that the social networking market was already divided among the giants. But TikTok changed that in less than a year. Now it is one of the largest social services with more than 1 billion users in 150 countries.
ByteDance has always attracted the attention of investors. In private funding rounds, the company managed to raise $9.4 billion. Last year, the company’s valuation exceeded $300 billion.
Even if ByteDance lists a very small share of the shares in the IPO, this IPO will still be included in the list of the largest in history.
Given the reputation of the company, the IPO will be closely watched by private investors. Therefore, demand for shares can greatly exceed supply. While prices can show a multiple increase.
Rumors about ByteDance’s IPO have been around for years. The media even appeared information that the company is considering potential underwriters. There are no official confirmations or dates yet, but many experts believe that ByteDance is already ready for public auction.
Electric vehicle companies have been performing well in the stock market in recent years. Their number will soon be replenished by Vinfast. The South Korean manufacturer of electric vehicles, electric buses and batteries for other vehicles has already filed for an IPO with the US regulator SEC.
The placement should take place in the first half of 2023. It was planned and officially announced by Vinfast management in the second half of 2022, but was postponed due to unfavorable market conditions.
According to company director Lou Thi Tu Tuy, Vinfast expects to receive a $60 billion valuation.
Right now, the company already produces more than 100,000 vehicles a year and plans to increase production by 1.5 times by 2024.
We hope that you have not yet forgotten about the success of the Beyond Meat IPO, which we talked about at the beginning of the article. The placement brought more than 160% profit to investors on the first day.
Impossible Foods is another well-known manufacturer of meat substitutes. The company held several large rounds of financing at once, and among the investors: Bill Gates, Jay-Z, Serena Williams and Katty Perry.
Impossible Foods plans to enter public auction were told by Reuters, citing sources in the company’s top management, back in April 2021. The initial placement was planned for 12 months, including with the option of entering the auction through SPAC.
The company has a bright future as many experts predict the alternative protein market will grow to $100 billion within 10 years. What is more, Impossible Foods already has a large share of this market. Therefore, participation in such an IPO can be a very good idea.
Another well-known social service that is preparing for its IPO. The company filed papers with the SEC at the end of 2021, but the exact date has not yet been determined. Representatives of Reddit said that they are waiting for “suitable market conditions.”

The company is now valued at more than $10 billion, but many analysts agree that an IPO could raise the valuation to over $15 billion. If you also think that Reddit can replicate the success of other major social networks in the stock market, you can participate in an IPO

The online payment market is growing every year. And if you want to become one of Stripe’s investors like Elon Musk, you can consider participating in the company’s IPO.

5 companies on the Pre-IPO market, which you need to enter now
Venture investment is now available to individual traders. To buy shares of well-known private companies before they go public, huge capital is no longer needed. You can invest in rapidly growing companies directly from your Metatrader.
The so-called Pre-IPO companies are also available. These are large projects that have already successfully completed several rounds of financing and are preparing to go public.
At each of these stages, company shares grow by tens and hundreds of percent. A couple of examples:
- Snowflake – the IT company, in which Warren Buffett himself invested, brought hundreds of percent of the profit. At the Pre-IPO stage, Snowflake shares could be bought for $15-$30. Immediately before the IPO, analysts estimated 1 share already at $70-$80. The shares were placed at $120 and rose to $253.93 on the first day of trading. The capital of investors who invested money at the Pre-IPO stage increased by 10-15 times.
- Another interesting example is the well-known cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase. Before the company went public, Coinbase shares could be bought for $40-$50. But on the first day of trading on the Nasdaq, the share price rose to $328.28.
What’s more, multiple price increases don’t just happen on the day of the IPO. With every successful funding round, new investors come into the business. The capitalization of the company is increasing, and everyone who has invested before is making money on it.
As mentioned above, you now have access to the venture investment market. Moreover, in a convenient and familiar terminal. This is a new product for traders, so in this article we would like to share a list of Pre-IPO companies worth investing in now.
The first private company to launch its own spacecraft into space orbit. SpaceX and its projects are so famous that hardly anyone needs to describe their activities.
