In this week's show, we discuss recent IPOs and IPOs in general. We talk about why and how IPOs are priced and how they can trade at such different prices on their first day of trading. We then move into a discussion revolving around the emerging risks of passive investing. Basically, the way market-cap-weighted indexes are constructed can create imbalances. For instance, Tesla is going to be the fifth largest weighting in the S&P 500! We wrap up talking about the very different way Gen Z thinks about and interacts with the world, and investment trends to consider as a result.
