Medallia IPO! Should I buy?

Jul 19, 2019 85 Comments

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?

    • 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 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

      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.

    I got in at IPO at 21 via fidelity

      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!!

    Why do people purchase individual stocks? Only do it with money you're willing to lose

    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 😭

      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.
