    You think Rakon might do a Plus SMS & have its share price multiple within 12 months?

    I personally wouldnt touch PLS, but it did go up from 0.14 to 0.82 (now at 0.68) so hype or not, most people would still be in the money.

    This would be the first IPO in a long time ASB Securities have not offered me an allocation.

    Hype sells. So sell the hype until reality bites.

    Ask Lanenz about NZO and the hype there. He's still sore about holding NZO whilst Woodside goes higher and higher and higher. Only thing going higher and higher at NZO is management's salaries.

    Nothing wrong with getting in early before the herd & letting the hype drive up the share price & making a quid from it is there?

    BTW, am holding NZO & not complaining, but lets leave this to a more appropriate thread.

    Rakon is IMO a stag play until the market see some real numbers chalked up & disclosed.

    Totally agree. Will stag my little allocation.

    Which tells you it's worth investing in. The brokers only shove their snouts in when it's a "cert". That's why they don't want any punters getting a sniff.

    Rakon is a good company. They have good product and good management, remember that they have a strong position in their market and invest in making the most of it. They are evryhting one looks for in a growth share

    However everything has it's price and reading this thread leads me to believe that this one will end up well overpriced once trading gets underway. It will take time for this to settle at a realistic price.

    If you have not got a firm allocation then patience will be the key to gaining a stake in this one.

    Pumpkin Patch was way over-priced at the time of the IPO, wasn't it? [8D]

    I know this will most likely get blasted, and that's all good - however, one thing that striked me as fairly odd (given rough mental calculations of comparably sized orgs) was the number of employees...500 is a hell of a lot of people isn't it?

    Keeping in mind the fact that I believe regardless of the IPO price, this share is bound to have some blue sky on open- at which time i will most likely throw some speculative cash into

    Plus SMS anyone?
    Bit rough comparing it to PLS! Rakon actually makes money where PLS is all smoke and mirrors with a technology no one seems to understand and does not make any $$$.

    You're reference to Pumpkin Patch may seem closer to the mark

    What it really tells you is if you are a good client of your broker or just another one making up the numbers []

    End of the day brokers have to fulfil all client demand before they can take stock for themselves. So in a tight issue like this it is only the top clients that will get stock.

    Like hens teeth these were...
    Managed to grab 6000 split across two brokers.....

    I like these for more than a quick stag. I think that Rakon have some geniuine IP in their production processes that others will need to be able to get hold of should they want to replicate and gain market share.

    Maybe.

    When I was paying 1% commission on any trades I was a pet of the brokers too. He helped me get into the NZF IPO.

    But when I eliminated the middleman and started trading online I was cast adrift.
