An initial public offering, or IPO is the first sale of stock by a company that has gone public. It's an offer by a company of its shares to potential buyers prior to the stock actually being listed on the stock exchange. Companies go public and sell IPO usually to raise a large amount of money. Like all kinds of investments, the success of IPO trading depends on market conditions. Do your homework before investing.
