Let’s Get Crafty: Etsy IPO Is Here

One share Etsy Stock

You can now buy one share of Etsy stock at GiveAshare.com in just two minutes! The company, an online marketplace for handmade products and craft supplies, is going public tomorrow at a price of $16 per share. The company is valued at $1.78 billion and raised $267 million in its initial public offering.

In 2014, Etsy’s revenue increased 56 percent to $196 million. Despite the drastic increase, the company still has yet to return a profit due to increased marketing expenses in recent years. Etsy CEO Chad Dickerson told shareholders in a letter that the company’s focus goes far beyond profitability.

“I believe that Etsy can be a public company that holistically integrates the concerns of people and the planet, the present and the future, profitability and accountability,” he wrote. 

The Etsy IPO is the largest ever of a certified B-Corporation, a company that meets stringent social and environmental standards.

The company will be listed on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol “ETSY.”

Oneshare.com Out of Business?

Oneshare.com appears to be out of business.  Over the last several months, we have been contacted by many Oneshare.com customers who bought Disney stock from them, had their credit card charged, and never got their share.  Unbelievable!   It’s hard to understand how a company could do something like that to customers.

To all previous Oneshare.com customers:

We would like to be your source for one share stock gifts.  At GiveAshare.com, you will find an outstanding selection of stocks and get unparalleled customer service.  Let us welcome you and introduce you to our business. 

GiveAshare.com is part of Leading Edge Gifts LLC.  We are a family-owned, reputable business based in Arizona.  We treat people the way we want to be treated.  We started GiveAshare in 2002, although we had the idea way back in the 1970’s giving friends and family shares of Boston Celtics stock as gifts.  In the 1980’s we contacted the SEC and actually did some test marketing  – BEFORE the internet.  It was an absolute flop!  In 2002, we tried again with a crude website that we were pretty proud of at the time – it was a huge hit!

Fast forward 12 years.  We are #1 in one share stock gifts because of our clever offerings, streamlined process,  friendly customer service, and because we diligently comply with all SEC requirements.  Over that time we have brought new innovations, many new and exciting stocks, and published the I’m A Shareholder Kit intended to improve the financial literacy of kids (a cause we feel very deeply about).  

Give us a try – you will be glad you did.

One More Reason To Buy One Share of DreamWorks Stock

dwa-101-logo100  Better buy one share of DreamWorks stock and get the authentic stock certificate while you still can!  Reports are that Japan’s SoftBank is in talks to buy DreamWorks Animation SKG.  If that happens, the authentic paper stock certificate featuring the famous logo and Shrek peaking out from the bottom, will go away forever.

That will be great news for stock certificate collectors as the collectible value of the certificate will increase but we will be sorry to see it go, because it has been one of the most popular stocks on our stock list.

Alibaba IPO – Should We Offer Alibaba Stock?

alibaba ipo






The massive Alibaba IPO is just about here.  Should we add it to our stock list?  Let us know:

The Chinese ecommerce giant will list on the NYSE with the ticker BABA.  “ba” means “8” in Chinese and is considered lucky (I guess double luck in this case).  We did a little research to determine if Alibaba will issue paper stock certificates and surprisingly, it looks like they may.

Let us know what you think – Would you want to buy one share of Alibaba?
