This Recent IPO's Investors Head for the Door. Should You?

Coming off the day when a major lockup period expired, shares of subscription review company Angie's List fell about 16%. Perhaps more alarming, insiders and early investors own about 44% of the stock, leaving Fool.com editor Andrew Tonner not a huge fan of the company. Inside ownership has caused a lot of problems with other companies like Facebook; it appears to be the same trend here. So, Fools, for relatively new tech companies, make sure to examine the lockup periods as they could offer predictions for the lower shares down the road.

Looking past the web 2.0 set of IPOs, the mobile revolution is a great example of a place in the tech inudstry that's still booming in its infancy, but with so many different companies it can be daunting to know how to profit in the space. Fortunately, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution that  tells you how. Inside the report, we not only describe why this seismic shift will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, and you can access this new report today by clicking here -- it's free.
