Are some IPOs designed to cheat?

That seems to be the conclusion of some investors who chose to sue Facebook and several operating banks that led the company’s IPO in recent days.

It accuses Facebook and the big operators of having hidden information that finally led to the IPO was a big failure that led thousands of investors to lose a lot of money in a short time.

In addition, it is speculated that the exit value of the shares of Facebook (38 dollars) was overvalued, fictitious, which led to that value was quickly placed below 30 dollars infringing huge losses to those who bought large amounts of shares on day when Facebook debuted on Nasdaq.

And is that the only ones who lost money were the unsuspecting investors who believed to make their August, because Facebook won a lot of money at the exit, money that is still in your bank accounts.

Facebook and its shareholders had an insured item, since they placed their shares in the primary market , and those who lost were those who bought those shares and then continued to sell them in the secondary securities market.

Facebook sold its shares at 38 and more dollars, and with it collected more than 16,000 million dollars, and then the shares sold plummeted even below 28 dollars, but that loss was assumed by those who bought the shares, not Facebook, because they had already charged.

In view of the fact that the company that goes public only sells the shares, it is not affected in the future by fluctuations in value, so they seek to ensure the highest value at the exit, even if it is fictitious, deliberately inflated. What happens next will be the problem of those who bought those shares.

Of course, if the shares of a company are devalued, the company loses value in the stock market but does not lose money, since the shares belong to the investors and these will be the ones that lose. The company will lose, or better, stop winning if in the future it requires a new placement of shares to increase capital, in which case it will have to offer them at a significant discount, but this does not mean that it does not have to be done once and for once. its August at the expense of the unsuspecting investors.

It is stated that Facebook was fully aware that his actions were worth much less than $ 38, and yet fixed that exit value which assured him an enormous initial collection, which can be accused of bad faith, because his interest in filling his bank accounts prevailed not caring that investors would then lose money when the value of the stock was adjusted by the market itself, as indeed it happened.

The certain thing is that the investors or speculators went by wool and they left trasquilados. They came to believe that buying the shares at $ 38 would then sell them at $ 50 or $ 60, and the reality has been very different.
