Upcoming IPOs in May 2019: Uber and 14 IPOs Upcoming in May 2019 – Uber Collecting Momentum as the Biggest IPO in 2019

The biggest IPO of 2019, Uber IPO has been started on Thursday, May 9th.  At the opening sale, Uber started at the price of 45$, soon going down below the initial price and touching 41$ per share at the closing.

Lyft had a similar destiny, Uber’s ridesharing competitor that went public at the end of March 2019, dropping from the starting share price of 72$ and ending at 51$ over the course of 5 weeks.

Uber raised 8.1 billion dollars with their IPO in oppose to the expected 9 billion, while market capitalization of Uber now stands at 76.5 billion dollars.

Uber is set to become the largest IPO in 2019 even though Beyond Meat IPO (BYND) showcased an amazing performance due to increased demand among investors.

Uber’s main challenger, Lyft (LYFT), didn’t quite managed to raise the same level of interest as Beyond Meat or Uber ahead of its IPO, so there are some speculations on the matter of how Uber will be welcomed.
