The Biggest Tech IPOs to Hit the Market- Money Morning

Thursday, micro-blogging site Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) will debut as a publicly traded company on Wall Street’s Big Board. Many analysts – including those at Money Morning – will steer clear of the hotly anticipated IPO – but TWTR has had no trouble generating investor interest.

The San Francisco-based company even increased its price range Monday on roughly 70 million shares from $17 to $20 per share to $23 to $25. The move values the company at a whopping $13.9 billion, or 26 times its revenue over the last 12 months. Twitter hopes to raise as much as $1.75 billion.
