Medallia IPO! Should I buy?

I think Medallia actually has potential, and I think their stock is doing better than I expected today. Should I buy? Anyone considering purchasing? Or should I wait a couple of days/weeks?

      Medallia is a SAAS company focused on customer experience management. They sell software and services to operationalize measurement and actions around customer satisfaction. They are the industry leader by a wide margin.

    • Qualtrics now belongs to SAP. So basically it will be dead in a 2-3 years and Medallia will soar..What I am saying is, put all your money in that sheet ASAP

      I don’t think Medallia will survive on its own. It’s a ecosystem world now.

      As someone who just started at Qualtrics, they seem to still be very independent, but I don’t think I’m going to stay long enough for the inevitable SAP destruction.

      I don't understand why medalia has generated so much hype. They sell analytics. No offense but... So what?

  • Qualtrics / Other qualtricdo
    I hate their cash burn rate, but I think the market is strong. I'm a buyer. They have taken some of our clients, we have taken some of theirs. They're a real competitor

      I’ve heard your founder, straight from his mouth say he regrets the sale and not going through with the IPO. I think that was shitty for employees with stock options. Hope the buyer paid out well. I would have much rather bought into qualtrics
      Jul 19
    • Qualtrics / Other qualtricdo
      Really? When did he say that? I 100% agree, but interesting to hear him say that
      Jul 19
    • Thumbtack helloTT
      He came to UVU right after the sale. I went to hear him give a talk with a friend of mine that knew him and his family. Grew up in the same neighborhood. He asked him about it, and he got a very honest answer.

      I think both sides lost. SAP big wigs pushing this product hard. Tiny deals compared to what we are used to doing.

      Yes but nothing crazy or big money. Only bought 200, since this was my first time getting in an IPO and wasn't sure

      How do you buy iPo through fidelity?
      Jul 19
    • Microsoft rubaduba
      Login > news and research > IPO. Make sure your financial profile (under Accounts and Trade> Account Features > Brokerage and Trading > Financial Profile) is set to be Aggressive or Extremely Aggressive to participate.

      Turn on email alerts to know about IPOs appearing on Fidelity. When something interest comes up, follow the links and sign up for interest in IPO. On day of IPO pricing you will get an email saying re-confirm if you are still interested. Do that. Next morning if you are lucky, you are assigned shares. You need cleared cash ofcourse in account prior to day of IPO Trading.

      For small fish like me, its hit or miss if I get assigned IPO shares. I am trying to crack the code on how I can assure I always (nearly) get IPO shares assigned.

      Enjoy!!

  • Medallia YGF528
    Haha Medallia sends those annoying feedback requests you get from the big brands like Apple, Marriott, and Delta. It then compiles, analyzes, and visualizes the data for clients. Hate working here, but hey I'll take a 74% pop from the opening IPO price. Hopefully it stays up until the lockup period 😭

      Lock up period sucks. That’s why I stopped working at start ups.

    • Medallia YGF528
      Apart from not wanting to go to jail, I don't know of any honestly. It just seems like most tech IPOs soar then crash lol.

      They’re losing money YoY. There are much bigger (and better) players in their space. And they don’t have the tech talent to compete (sorry former O-Power folks). But I’m just a Pinterest employee... what do I know?

    • Medallia / Eng ouie
      Thanks! I wish Qualtrics had shared more of the wealth from the SAP acquire, seemed like most employees got peanuts from it. My entire team (all relatively new) started at at least 13,000 options and a very low strike price... you do the math. 💴💴💴

    Will be interesting to watch, most of the exec team are from SAP (ex Successfactors). Could be IPO then acquisition later...

      Most exec are from Callidus which was acquired by SAP and then they left at a year.

      Everyone is stoked. We are all chained to our desk now, albeit with gold chains post-IPO, so we will continue to work hard and deliver value. We’re a good company. Who knows what the tech/IPO/stock market will do though?
