Initial Public Offering ( IPO ) is the first sale of stock by a private company to public.IPOs are issued to raise capital for expanstion.IPO can be a risky investment as the investor do not have any idea about how stock will trade on first day.There is no historical data available.Large IPOs are underwritten by syndicate of investment banks.
