“Which of the following statements are true?
1. 20% of IPOs gain 100% or more within their first year.
2. Over 90% of IPOs eventually trade below their first day low.
They are both true! IPOs provide great opportunities, but they are also replete with severe drawdowns that can leave traders with net losses, even for those stocks that are eventual big winners. This succinct volume dispels some of the misconceptions about IPOs and should serve as a useful aid in navigating the treacherous waters of IPO trading and in formulating your own trading plan for these unique stocks.”

“As a career futures and forex trader, I have always been intrigued by growth stocks, but never developed the skill to identify the 10X or 20X winners. The Lifecycle Trade is the first book I have read that could help an equities trader gain that skill in a methodical and systematic way. Kudos to the authors for putting a bookend to the earlier works by Peter Lynch.”
