We're happy to announce that you can now sign up to receive an email alert whenever an equity initial public offering (IPO) or fixed-income new issue offering that we're participating in becomes available.
Equity IPO alerts
To sign up, log in to your account at tdameritrade.com and go to Research & Ideas > Alerts > Equity IPOs. Once enrolled (see figure 1), you’ll receive an email whenever a deal we are participating in is open to take conditional offers to buy (COBs), which is usually a week prior to the IPO offering price. The alert will include the name of the company offering the IPO, a symbol (if one has been assigned), the estimated pricing date, and range.
It’s important to note that receipt of an IPO alert does not mean you are eligible to participate in an offering or that you will receive an allocation. See our IPO eligibility requirements.
Fixed-income new issue alerts
To receive an alert when a fixed-income new issue becomes available, log in to your account at tdameritrade.com and go to Research & Ideas > Alerts > Fixed-Income New Issues. Check which types of alerts you want to get (see figure 2). Depending on which you choose, the email you receive will include information relevant to that type like the offering period, issuer, expected yield and ratings, and payment frequency.*
IPOs are subject to unique risks and are not suitable for all investors.
Knowledge is Power
On occasion, we will act as a member of the selling group for IPOs. When we do, we can offer qualified accounts the opportunity to participate. For more information, please visit our page on IPOs.
