Opened at $45 a share. (low end of the $44-$50 anticipated price range)

Currently $44.50 a share.

N.B. Bloomberg have suggested that Uber has prioritized selecting shareholders -- particularly institutional investors -- that it thinks will hold on to the stock for a long time. They don't want a Lyft style mini crash.

First day closed $3.43 (7.62%) down.

Current price $41.57.

Business Insider gives a view on the first day and indicates why some will not be pleased.

I think the real marker will be how the market reacts on publishing the first full results after the IPO

I think uber will "miraculously" show a profit for the first time ever and shares will finish at a 10 to 15 percent premium over 12 months after that is where it will be make or break time

Not sure that will happen at all, but if they ever did make a profit it will be 10 years + at the earliest.

Remember "they" (the buyers/sellers) of shares make money regardless of the share PRICES, once its a saleable item its commission on share movements and also 1 rumour drops the price (SELL SELL SELL) and another hikes the price (BUY BUY BUY) to a peak then SELL SELL SELL to take the profit.

Its not our world and we can never truly understand it

you are of course assuming that they left their money in and didn't cash in on the IPO ?

My understanding is that often on these IPO's there is an option for all current investors to get a slice of the IPO money and be reimbursed at a tidy profit as the business is immediately worth x amount more than the sum of previous capital investment

We have to remember in early 2018 the Saudi's invested $3.5 billion in Uber, buying shares at $48.77 each.

The markets closed today at $41.70. Thus they are down just over $8 a share, or $547,000,000.
