Fun IPO Calculator

by Manshu on August 17, 2009


Here is something I was toying with for a couple of weeks now. It is a calculator that tells you how much money you will make in listing gains of an IPO, if you key in the amount you are willing to invest, what you expect to be allotted to you, price per share, and what you expect the stock to list at.

There is no way for you to tell how much you will be allotted, or what the stock will list at, therefore, this calculator is just for fun, and should not be taken seriously at all.

I am calling it Beta because I already have several improvements in mind. If you want to see any features added in, let me know, and I’ll add them, if I can.

Here is how it works:

In the “Investment Amount” field, enter the amount that you will be investing in the IPO.

In the “Allotment Amount” field, enter the amount that you expect will be allotted to you.

In the “IPO Price” field, enter the price at which the IPO is being offered.

In the “Listing Price”, enter the price at which you expect the stock to list.

Hit “Submit” and see the fun.

You mean the mechanics? That’s just simple PHP. I’m not much of a programmer, and have never seriously coded, but this was easy to do.
