For thos who didn't participate on the IPO, get your eTRADE, Datek or Ameritrade accounts ready, becuase the fun is ready to beguin. We should expect to see it actively trading on the NASDAQ tomorrow morning.

Based on the IPO price change I predict a 3 - 6% increase on open by the end of the first day based on demand of those who did not participade through the bidding process.

GOOG LUCK!!!

Don't forget to bookmark your favorite stock source. I personally like Yahoo! Finance.

Few more articles:

Google IPO priced at $85 a share, CNN

Google sells 19.6 mln shares at $85 each, Reuters (which does the math and says this means Google has now raised $1.67 billion).

If I understand things right, anyone who bid at $85 and above got the offered shares Wednesday night (whether if you bid more, you paid more, I'm unclear on). And today when the markets open, some of those newly minted investors may begin to flip their shares on the NASDAQ.

Is there a pot of gold in the other side of the rainbow?

Google's Insiders Strike It Rich With IPO

Quote:
- Page collected $41,052,750 and Brin got $40,894,605 from the IPO. That's a pittance compared to their remaining stakes in the company. They are holding on to Google shares that are worth $3,239,416,725 for Page and $3,230,674,475 for Brin.

- Yahoo sold off 1.61 million Google shares to raise $136,914,430 and still owns 6.59 million shares worth $559,990,710 based on the initial offering price.

- Eric Schmidt picked up $31,362,025 Wednesday and still owns a stake worth $1,223,118,975.

- AOL made a killing on the IPO -- $63,218,325. AOL's remaining Google stake is worth $568,965,095.

- Angel Investors pocketed $7,061,205 in the IPO and is holding on to a $63,551,355 stake.

Most Google employees who own stock in the company didn't get to participate in the IPO, but some will have a chance to start cashing in next month. Google is allowing company insiders to sell up to another 4.58 million shares on the Nasdaq stock exchange in 15 days.
