Snap Inc., Snapchat's parent company, has recently made a regulatory filing for an IPO listing on the NYSE scheduled for March with ticker code: (NYSE:SNAP). Snapchat (“Snap”) is looking to raise $3bn in funding for the company in its SEC filing with a $20-25 billion valuation. In terms of its business activity, as at end of 2016, Snap has 158 million daily, active users creating …

Pace Micro Technology (LON:PIC) has seen a spectacular fall from grace from its share price highs due to a combination of not meeting financial result expectations with the City and not being transparent enough about the problems causing these short falls. Pace has dropped from the circa 200p region since the start of the year to a 52 week low of 87p and currently trading…

When such a large scale IPO hits the market, there are some concerns as whether this is a sign of the commodity cycle peaking. The Glencore IPO is the largest since General Motors sold shares in November, and will give Glencore a value of $61 billion if priced at the midpoint of its offer range.

There are 3 fundamental rationale points which supports my view: 1) Pace is currently trading within 15% of its historical trough P/E (excluding 2009 trough…

I enjoyed reading your article. I am surprised that circa 50% of the fund raising book for Vallares is from the US. The level of US investor interest speaks volumes on Tony Hayward being quite respected in the US (even post "Gulf of Mexico" oil spill crisis).

Glencore will have a crucial week this week as its price stabilisation period comes to an end. Morgan Stanley, the stabilisation manager has aided in keeping Glencore shares trading within a narrow band meaning if the price dips, the stabilisation manager can buy back the stake in the open market to support the price.
