The Facebook Offering: How It Compares

Posted to Visualization  |  Tags: , , ,  |  Kim Rees

The New York Times does it again with this succinct look at tech IPOs. It begins with looking at everything through the lens of when Google’s IPO in 2004, which, at the time, was considered huge. The next screen adds Facebook to the mix which dwarfs everything prior. It continues on to show the first day of trading pop and where things landed long term (3 years post-IPO).

It’s a very interesting view of IPOs and could actually be a good financial analysis tool with a few more features.
