What is YELP ticker symbol and when is the IPO date ( initial public offering) 

 Updated March 2nd , 2012 9:59 amEST 
YELP has opened well over that $15 level — low was $22 and high was $26   ( as of 10am was $24.65 )

— Looks like YELP ipo price will be $15 per share well above the $12-$14 that was projected:
news here: 
Could explain why $ZNGA had a strong run into the close of markets today & was higher after hours tonight ( went as high as $14.62 in afterhours )
watch the other internet IPO’s and possibly the China Internet Plays could get a push tomorrow if the YELP iPO goes well ( $GRPN $LNKD $ZNG A $RENN $YOKU $DANG etc.)
I actually prefer ZNGA business model and stock vs. YELP #ipo tomorrow for a few reasons
1) YELP has not been profitable although there is a lot of excitement into tomorrow’s IPO
2) ZNGA should do well ahead of FACEBOOK #ipo ($FB) – but waiting for any decent drops on ZNGA to trade it
3) ZNGA should continue to do well due to the close partnership with Facebook and as they both grow should explode ZNGA further
4) ZNGA seems good to adapt to new games , and any other income sources should be a great plus for them going forward
In the coming days/weeks will keep watch for dips on some of the other names i mentioned but if that YELP does well expect a bigger push across the board on the internet new #IPO stocks  i mentioned above

You can see some info on past IPO’s i’ve traded & the IPO Strategy that seems to work well on these here:  http://sg22.ly/nWpdOp  & here for intraday fib strategies which worked well on YOKU DANG ipos – could work well on YELP : http://sg22.ly/ofyUme 
I’ll do some updated charts on $ZNGA $GRPN $LNKD ( i missed those trades but the pattern was the same) I should not have missed those nice bounces on these 3 since they were easy traders into the drops after the IPO’s
