As you know, the biggest social networks are fiercely competing to attract and gain the loyalty of their users. In order to be able to compete, Twitter will have to double its resourcefulness. It is sensible that investors adopt a global approach to this line of business by taking the competition into account. Keep close watch on the market development of every big name in blogging and information sharing, but also on outsiders which could have a high impact in the years to come.
The Twitter group will go public on October 31, 2013 on the NYSE New York Stock Exchange. The IPO price is set at $26 per share. The first quotation of this stock will thus be at 45.10 dollars. The share will then peak at $73.31 in December 2013 and will then begin to fall back to $31.85 at the end of the lock-up, i.e. at the end of the period during which a shareholder cannot dispose of the shares purchased, i.e. in May 2014.
