Listen to Article

Aside from MicroStrategy raising $650 million for Bitcoin this past week, one of the biggest news on financial Twitter was the Airbnb IPO. After months and even years of anticipation, the global peer-to-peer rental service went public on the stock market. While this came in the middle of a pandemic when the firm’s profits are slipping, the markets bid it higher anyway.

Airbnb’s stock, ABNB reached a $100 billion valuation just after it began trading. Further, the shares now trade for $139, despite the IPO closing at $68 per share.
