(Bloomberg) – Uber's injured investors have had the weekend to prep for what looks like a tough Monday for markets, partly because escalation of President Donald Trump's tariff patch with China is set to hammer sentiment.
. Uber opened at $ 42 or 6.7% below the $ 45 IPO award. Shortly afterwards, it went to $ 41.06. While the company briefly withdrew almost all its losses within the early afternoon, the withdrawal showed briefly.
"While the trade war has caused total stock market volatility, we believe that the poor trading in lift was the most important factor affecting Uber," said Kathleen Smith, co-founder of Renaissance Capital and head of stock exchange listing funds. "Investors are looking for valuation multiples of Lift to Uber. And when the Lift share dropped, it also made Uber."
During the last three trading days, Lyft pulled 13.9% to a very low level. At the same time, the Renaissance increased the IPO ETF 0.5% and surpassed the S&P 500. So while Uber and Lyft go through some "tough price discoveries" and may continue to do so in the coming days, the rest of the market research market appears to be healthy, Smith said.
In the first hour of the tour the company's IPO, retail investors at TD Ameritrade performed 1.8 times more trades than in Lyft's first 2.5 hours, according to TD Ameritrade's Alyson Nikulicz. Uber had made up 10% of Friday's equity trades from 1:28 pm in New York at TD Ameritrade.
Before Uber's debut, of a total of 60 companies, only four IPOs had a billion dollar or more decline of at least 5% since the beginning of the decade. Only seven ended the first trading day in red.
"We think this is a bit of a brief momentum, we don't see this as a Lift 2.0," says Dan Ives, CEO Wedbush Securities on Bloomberg TV. "This continues to be a" show me "story. "
For now, history is set to be one of volatility as trading dump stocks and other risky assets. The weekend back and forth between Trump and China suggests US government bonds and currencies like the yen and Swiss francs will look much on Monday.  – With help from Sarah Ponczek.
