Though the path from startup to multibillion-dollar concern doesn’t always travel through the stock market anymore, there are plenty of companies still looking to make the transition from privately held to publicly traded. And as Motley Fool Money host Chris Hill previews 2019, he has this question for senior analysts Aaron Bush and Matt Argersinger: Which initial public offerings are they particularly hoping to see announced this year?
In Bush’s view, it’s time for powerful payment platform Stripe to debut on Wall Street. For Argersinger, it’s a company he’s had a long relationship with: AirBnB. In this segment from Motley Fool Money podcast, they explain what makes them so upbeat about those companies.
