Cashing out before the crash while the markets will still support IPO's
Let’s say the company you work for goes public and your stock is suddenly worth $1,000,000 (as an example). A wise investor, you normally put all of your other savings into broad market index funds. Now, do you sell your company’s stock that was given to you and took you four years to vest into, or do you hold on to it and hope the valuation keeps rising? (This is a rhetorical question btw)
Will this result in appreciably more money flowing into the rest of the ecosystem from the people that are enriched turning into Angel investors? Or does that only happen with the massive IPOs like Microsoft, Google, et al?
There are some good and some not so good among these companies. Uber is a taxi company with an app. Cars still cost the same as before to run, drivers still cost the same as before, all costs are the same as before. So once the subsidization by VCs stops, Uber rides will be as expensive as any other ride. Self-driving cars will not save Uber either. There is no network effect with self-driving cars, and once the technology is ready it will be commoditized, and Uber will have no advantage.
As a rider, it's great to use it while you can, but there is no actual business there.
Airbnb on the there hand has all the advantages people like to see in a business.
So how do the "rest of us" profit from these IPOs?
Smells like a bubble....
something tells me all stars are aligning for a huge correction. real estate prices inflated beyond imaginable while wages bave been stagnant. almost a decade old tech companies not making any money valued in billions and an administration made up of moron wages war on issues that have no relation to the country. something tells me shit will collapse big time in Trump's last term and everything will be blamed on him and people who voted for him by the media and the elite. meanwhile the elite will have cashed in on all these ipos by having dumped overinflated stock of unicorns on middle class. 2020 will be a hell of a year
