Run And Hide: Goldman Sachs Says The Internet IPO Market Is Back

from the uh-oh... dept

The signs of the new bubble are coming fast and furious these days. Startups are getting money they don't want or need, buyouts are starting to happen, and now Wall Street has woken up. Goldman Sachs has declared from atop the mountain that the time for internet companies to go public is now back. Open up the floodgates and let the hype flow in... To his credit, the managing director at Goldman who said this tried to limit the remarks by saying that it's more cautious and less about hype this time, but Wall Street doesn't seem to work around that kind of subtlety. It's usually all out or nothing.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Where's Osama when you need him?

    Wasn't he good for the economy, giving us something to care about? What's wrong with letting more burning bankers fall out of windows?
