Public offering price
Public Offering Price
The first price for which a company offers to sell stock in itself when it makes a new issue, whether or not that is its first new issue. For example, if a publicly-traded company is issuing new stock, it may set the public offering price at $10 per share for primary trading. Investing at the public offering price can be a risky investment, because one does not know how much demand will exist for the stock after its initial offering; the risk comes from the uncertainty of the stock's resale value. However, it is usually less risky if the company has made public offerings before. See also: Initial public offering.
