Twitter IPO Live – Business Insider

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo on the floor of the NYSE.

Twitter had a relatively steady first day as a public company.

The IPO was priced at $26 a share. The opening trade was at $45.10.

That price took a little longer than expected for the NYSE. Trading opened at 10:49. People were expecting to start at 10 AM.

The extra time was spent getting the price just right, and it worked. The stock briefly hit $50 during the day, then settled in at ~$46. At the end of the day it lost some steam and closed at $44.9o. Not too bad!

“It has changed the perception of who Patrick Stewart is.”
