DoorDash fell as much as 8.8% on Thursday, paring some of the massive gains seen in its first day of public trading.
The food-delivery company leaped 86% above its initial-public-offering price after the stock made its debut on the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday. DoorDash raised $3.4 billion by selling shares at $102 each. The stock opened at $182 Wednesday afternoon and reached an intraday high of $195.50.
Shares slid below their Wednesday opening level before markets opened on Thursday, signaling investors who took in hefty profits from the IPO pop moved quickly to lock in gains.
Even with the company’s mild Thursday drop, DoorDash still boasts a market cap of roughly $52 billion. That handily exceeds the $15 billion valuation it achieved in the private market earlier this year.
Some of the market’s bullishness was linked to the firm’s outperformance throughout the coronavirus pandemic. DoorDash’s third-quarter revenue grew 268% from the year-ago period as Americans increasingly moved to delivery services over eating out.
The company’s post-IPO rally sets the stage for similar pops for upcoming debuts. Airbnb is set to begin trading on Thursday after raising $3.5 billion in its own offering. The company priced shares at $68 each, above the $56 to $60 range it forecasted on Monday.
ContextLogic – the parent company of Wish – and gaming platform Roblox are also slated to go public before the end of the year.
DoorDash traded at $176.25 as of 10:45 am ET on Thursday.
