I told you this weekend that some of the biggest money-making opportunities this year have come from IPOs. What I failed to show you is how much IPOs can move. Ben Sturgill — the IPO Whisperer himself — sent me the below chart. It shows the returns of some of the top-performing recent IPOs…

The top performer, Beyond Meats, was up an astonishing 510% just 60 days after it went public!

I’ve traded BYND options and generated some pretty nice gains… but a 510% equity move in just two months is almost unheard of outside of the penny stock world.

And these explosive moves happen no matter what the market is doing. And there’s basically an endless supply of IPOs… new companies become available to trade for the first time ever, all the time.

That should get you excited —  especially now that you’ve seen the potential gains.

And if you haven’t fully taken advantage of trading IPOs, don’t worry, that ends Thursday.

I’m hosting a live event with IPO expert Ben Sturgill to get everyone up to speed on how to trade this lucrative market. But you must register now to watch this one-time event.

In the meantime, I’ve asked Ben to join me in today’s Insider issue. I got a flood of emails when I announced the IPO Payday event, and he’s agreed to answer some of your questions.

But first, I want to tell you about something else that’s happening…

My Interview With IPO Whisperer Ben Sturgill

Jeff B: Hey Ben —  thanks for letting me pick your brain.

You and I have worked together for a while now, but many of our members might not know who you are. Can you tell them a little about yourself?

Ben S: Sure. First and foremost, I’m a husband and father of three boys.

And if you want a fun fact about me… I used to play professional basketball overseas. It was a great time and a fun adventure while it lasted.

But after that ended, my energy and passion turned to trading. And I haven’t looked back.

Jeff B: I mentioned up top some of the massive returns IPOs have delivered in just a few months. Is that what got you interested in trading IPOs in the first place?

Ben S: YES! In fact, I saw the power and potential of IPOs with the first one I traded 15 years ago. It was Google —  I’m sure you’ve heard of it.

After that experience, I was hooked. IPOs have fascinated me ever since.

Jeff B: There’s a lot of traders that think IPOs are risky, what would you tell them?

Ben S: Well —  like you always say —  there’s no reward without risk.

If you’re looking for a way to make significant amounts of money with no risk, I have some bad news, that doesn’t exist. So, of course, there’s some risk —  especially if you don’t know what you’re doing and don’t have any guidance.

But like any other strategy, my goal is to maximize returns while reducing risk as much as humanly possible. And I’d say the best way to reduce risk is to do your homework.

I spend dozens of hours each week analyzing all available information about an IPO before I trade it. The more you know about the company, the better you can predict how it’ll trade.

And like any other strategy, it takes experience and discipline to trade these fast-moving stocks. You need to understand support/resistance levels, chart patterns and where to exit trades.

I’ve studied, tracked and traded IPOs for a long time, but I understand that most people don’t have the time or interest to master trading IPOs.

But that’s what I’m here for… I’ve developed a simple strategy that I’m making available to all RagingBull members,

Jeff B: Speaking of your strategy… I know you’ll be revealing all the details this Thursday, but can you give us a sneak peek?

Ben S: My IPO Payday strategy focuses on trading the predictable life cycle of an IPO.

The first stage is what I call “The Pop.” That usually happens when an IPO first starts trading. This doesn’t happen with every IPO — there are certain things I look for which I’ll be detailing this Thursday.

But the research I do before the company goes public is a big factor. Here’s an example of what a “pop” looks like using Beyond Meat (BYND) as an example:



As you can see, shares shot up over 90% in the few days after the company went public. As we now know, that was just the beginning.

You see, there’s usually a lot of built-up excitement and demand for certain IPOs (especially one as hyped up as Beyond Meat), so there’s an immediate opportunity to generate a Payday in the first couple of days after a company becomes goes public and pops.

I’ll save the other two phases for Thursday.
The whole idea is that — for every new IPO… there are at least three solid opportunities to make a killing. And remember, there are a few new IPOs each and every week.

Jeff B: In the meantime, are there any IPOs you’re watching now?

Ben S: Like I said, there are new IPOs hitting the market each week, and there’s usually a few dozen I’m keeping an eye on. Does that mean I’ll trade each one?

No. I’m patient and wait for the right moment in the “IPO Lifecycle” to enter the trade.
That being said, here’s an exclusive list (for RagingBull Insiders only) of IPOs I’m watching right now:

Remember, this is a watchlist, not any sort of ‘buy’ alert. Everything needs to be in place for me to pull the trigger on any of these trades…

But by the time I’m done on Thursday, you’ll be on your way to knowing how and when to trade these IPOs.

JB: Thanks for talking with me Ben!
