The best performing IPO from IPO price to first day close was Autohome Inc (ATHM) who was up 76.88% by the close of that day, with an intraday high of $31.44. Autohome is a leading online destination for automobile consumers in China. They run two websites, autohome.com.cn and che168.com, where they deliver comprehensive independent and interactive content to automobile buyers and owners.

Those of you unfamiliar with an IPO, it stands for “Initial Public Offering”. This is the first point in time when the public is able to purchase an equity stake in the company. There are also secondary offerings, which are utilized when an already public company is looking to raise some cash to be used.

HSD – Twitter $TWTR

The Hot Stock of the Day is Twitter Inc (TWTR). Twitter was on a tear today up 5.80% to close at $51.99 and is up 24.85% since the beginning of last week. Twitter has been an interesting stock to follow since it just IPOed on November 6th, for $26 a share. Investors have been, and still are, cautious thinking that this will be another Facebook (FB) .

Twitter’s revenue model is still being developed and their user base is still growing. They have not fully tapped into the potential revenue generation that they will see moving forward. A lot of investors are sitting on the sideline and waiting to see where they will go.

Twitter is still fairly speculative at this point. I am bullish on this company, but cannot justify it at its current valuation.
