Would you be a buyer of VISA at the open? I would normally have said, "Heck no!" But I remember similar fanfare for VMW last year. All of the fast money traders on TV and Cramer said, DO NOT buy it, buy EMC. Well....... on the first day, VMW ran up $7 immediately from the open.... 52-59. I just stared at it in amazement and thought, "That would have been easy money."

So, again his time, fast money is saying, don't buy it, buy MA. Well, what has been your experience on the first day an IPO (of this size) opens, does it run up, or sell-off in most cases.

Thanks Ya'll
Wait for a dip in the day, but still buy
Wait several days, weeks
Not at all
