Since coming public in late June, Twilio Inc (NYSE:TWLO) has offered juicy returns for both the longs and shorts. Keep in mind that the first-day return was a sizzling 92%. Then a few months later, the gains for TWLO stock came to 366%, making the Twilio IPO one of the top performers for the year.

Snap Inc., which was previously called Snapchat, reportedly wants to raise $4 billion in its initial public offering (IPO) for 2017.
The Snap IPO is expected to take place during the first quarter of 2017. The IPO for the company is expected to value it between $25 billion and $35 billion. However, it is possible that it could reach a value of up to $40 billion.
Unnamed sources close to the matter claim that the company will be confidentially filing its IPO documents with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. This is possible because the company has yearly revenue below $1 billion. It is planning to bring in $350 million in advertising revenue in 2016. Read
