The IPO Buzz: Chasing

From the streets of Hong Kong to America’s financial TV Land, last week’s buzz was about the $1.5 billion IPO. Like many hot issues, millions were shut out from getting a piece of China’s huge, hot IPO, including Americans. The later was not a case of: “Yankee! Go home.” It was the Securities Act of 1933 that got in the way.

The IPO Buzz: Speed Bump
