2019 should be one for the record books in the IPO market. The list of potential 2019 IPOs is long, diverse, and includes some of the biggest and fastest growing private companies.
Wendi Choi of IDS Associates in Hong Kong said, “I think many of these IPOs will be extremely successful. The group of companies going public this year include the list of companies that were born out of the Financial Crisis years ago.
They are cut from a different cloth than current public companies. Most importantly, most of these companies are employing coordinated economic principles to give power back to the people, and in so doing, are utilizing great strength and smarts.
Not only does the 2019 IPO market project to be one for the record books, but it should also yield some big winners.
Let’s look at a list of IPOs that investors are excited for in 2019;
Investors should be excited about the Uber IPO because this company has truly optimized transportation services. Before Uber, transportation services were performed by the few (namely, taxis). Uber democratized the supply of transportation services.
Lyft is now a publicly traded company. That’s exciting news. Much like Uber, Lyft is a quintessential coordinator who has helped coordinate supply in the transportation industry to meet robust demand. In so doing, Lyft has huge opportunities in front, to not only become a solid second player in the ride-sharing market.
Airbnb, who also projects to go public in 2019.Much like Uber, Airbnb has become a quintessential coordinator. Before, accommodation services were provided by hotels. Airbnb democratized supply in that market and said that anyone who has an extra room or living space can rent it out for accommodation purposes.
Airbnb doesn’t have any second competitor that is also set to IPO in 2019. Thus, the competition landscape for Airbnb is quite attractive for the foreseeable future.
Palantir is set to go public in 2019. At its core, Palantir provides solutions which enable companies of all sizes to make sense of big data. Big data is of increasing importance, where Palantir excels is providing the best of the best analysis on such data.
The long-term outlook for Palantir looks good. So long as data becomes increasingly important, Consequently, the Palantir IPO should be successful.
Choi of IDS Associates says, ”2019 should be an exciting year for IPO’s and we are doing our best to position our clients where they can reap the most rewards”.
