Buying the Latest IPOs Not the Best Trading Strategy

Wall Street’s making big money with these overpriced IPOs. They’ve gotten so smart; most companies are only selling 10% to 20% of their equity. This creates perceived value for the company issuing the stock.

IPOs of stocks in the last quarter of 2011 have been exceptionally strong, but Michael Lombardi, lead editor of Profit Confidential, says that investing in these new issues isn’t the best trading strategy.

“Would I buy any of these IPOs? Of course not,” says Lombardi. “I don’t have the appetite for the risk they present. And when the bear market rally we are currently experiencing finally ends, it will be these kinds of companies, with unstable earnings, which will fall the fastest.”

Lombardi’s strategy has been consistent over the last 10 years. He just continues to buy “boring,” stable senior gold mining stocks when the price of gold bullion corrects sharply on the downside.

As for those hot IPOs, Lombardi is staying away from them.

“Wall Street’s making big money with these overpriced IPOs,” writes Lombardi in Profit Confidential. “They’ve gotten so smart; most companies are only selling 10% to 20% of their equity. This creates perceived value for the company issuing the stock.”

Lombardi believes that with so many investors and funds chasing the small supply of stock that is offered, only “quality” clients of the big brokerage houses are able to get in at the early stages of the IPOs.

“It’s one of those ‘the public be damned’ situations again,” says Lombardi.

Profit Confidential, which has been published for over a decade now, has been widely recognized as predicting five major economic events over the past 10 years. In 2002, Profit Confidential started advising its readers to buy gold-related investments when gold traded under $300 an ounce. In 2006, it “begged” its readers to get out of the housing market...before it plunged.

Profit Confidential was among the first (back in late 2006) to predict that the U.S. economy would be in a recession by late 2007. The daily e-letter correctly predicted the crash in the stock market of 2008 and early 2009. And Profit Confidential turned bullish on stocks in March of 2009 and rode the bear market rally from a Dow Jones Industrial Average of 6,440 on March 9, 2009, to 12,876 on May 2, 2011, a gain of 99%.
