After IPO, Twitter stock
instantly rises 70 percent B

Company valued at
nearly $31 billion
after first day
NEW YORK (AP) - Shares
of Twitter went on sale to the
public for the first time Thurs-
day, instantly leaping more than
70 percent above their offering
price in a dazzling debut that
exceeded even Wall Street's
lofty hopes.
By the closing bell, the social
network that reinvented global
communication in 140-charac-
ter bursts was valued at $31 bil-
lion - nearly as much as Yahoo
Inc., an Internet icon from
another era, and just below
Kraft Foods, the grocery con-
glomerate founded more than a
century ago.
The stock's sizzling perfor-
mance seemed to affirm the
bright prospects for Internet
companies, especially those

focused on mobile users. And
it could invite more entre-
preneurs to consider IPOs,
which lost their luster after
Facebook's first appearance
on the Nasdaq was marred by
In Silicon Valley, the IPO
produced another crop of mil-
lionaires and billionaires, some
of whom are sure to fund a new
generation of startups.
Twitter, which has never
turned a profit in the seven
years since it was founded,
worked hard to temper expec-
tations ahead of the IPO, but all
that was swiftly forgotten when
the market opened.
Still, most analysts don't
expect the company to be profit-
able until 2015. Investors will be
watching closely to see whether
Twitter was worth the premi-
um price.
Thursday's stock surge was
"really not as important as you
might think," said Kevin Lan-

dis, a portfolio manager with
Firsthand Funds, which owns
shares in Twitter. "What really
matters is where the stock is
going to be in six months, 12
The most anticipated initial
public offering of the year was
carefully orchestrated to avoid
the dysfunction that surround-
ed Facebook's IPO.
Trading on the New York
Stock Exchange under the sym-
bol "TWTR," shares opened at
$45.10, 73 percent above their
initial offering price.
In the first few hours, the
stock jumped as high as $50.09.
Most of those gains held
throughout the day, with Twit-
ter closing at $44.90, despite a
broader market decline.
The narrow price range indi-
cated that people felt it was
"pretty fairly priced," said JJ
Kinahan, chief strategist at TD

supply of shares," said Wedbush
analyst Michael Pachter.
Earlier in the day, Twitter
gave a few users rather than
executives the opportunity to
ring the NYSE's opening bell.
The users included actor Pat-
3 rick Stewart, who played Cap-
tain Jean-Luc Picard in "Star
9 7 Trek: The Next Generation";
Vivienne Harr, a 9-year-old
girl who ran a lemonade stand
for a year to raise money to
end child slavery; and Cheryl

Twitter raised $1.8 billion
Wednesday night when it sold
70 million shares to select inves-
tors for $26 each. But the huge
first-day pop left some analysts
wondering whether the compa-
ny could have raised more. Had
Twitter priced the stock at $30,
6 for instance, the company would
have taken away $2.1 billion. At
$35, it would have reaped nearly
$2.5 billion. That's a lot for a
company that's never made a
profit and had revenue of just
$317 million last year.

Now that the newcomers have
entered the space station follow-
ing a long hatch-opening pro-

since 2009. Fyodor Yurchikhin

The Olympic torch was taken
aboard the U.S. space shuttle
Atlantis in 1996 for the Atlanta

responsibility getting to work'

Tyurin told journalists on
Wednesday before the launch.

The four-month Sochi torch
relay, which started in Mos-
cow on Oct. 7, is the longest in
the history of the Olympics. For
most of the 65,000-kilometer

Last month, the Olympic

highest mountain in Russia and
The torch will be used to light
the Olympic flame at Sochi's sta-

of the 2014 Winter Games that
run until Feb. 23.
