U.S. 30-year mortgage rate soars to highest since 2000
U.S. mortgage applications for home purchases have hit a 28-year low, with refinancing down 35% compared to last year, as reported by the Mortgage Bankers Association. Mortgage rates reached 7.31%, the highest in 23 years. A combination of elevated rates and reduced purchasing power has led to a decline in homebuyer activity. Existing home sales dropped 2.2% in July, reflecting a 16.6% year-over-year dip. Low housing supply is further contributing to high home prices, creating affordability challenges for buyers. Despite earlier predictions of a 2.2% price decline, Goldman Sachs strategists now foresee a 1.8% increase due to scarce new listings and limited purchase applications. Read more

How do I invest in an IPO?


An IPO gives the investing public an opportunity to own and participate in the growth of a formerly private company. By their nature, however, IPOs can be risky and speculative investments. 
There are two ways the general public can invest in a new public company. First, if you are a client of an underwriter involved in the IPO, you may be offered the opportunity to directly participate in the IPO. In this instance, you will be able to purchase the shares at the offering price. It is often the case that underwriters and dealers will distribute most of the shares in the IPO to their institutional and high net-worth clients, such as mutual funds, hedge funds, pension funds, insurance companies and high net-worth individuals. For the typical investor, being able to directly buy in a popular IPO is a unique opportunity.
The other way, which is more common in the case of individual investors, is to purchase the shares when they are resold in the public market in the days following the IPO. An investor could place an order with their broker to purchase shares in this manner.
