Bella says: I know i am a new investor and have still so much to learn

Having the stock price move the "wrong way" immediately after buying is a common experience. It's not unique to IPO s.

You will rather frequently see some investor advising that s/he bought XYZ, therefore, everyone else should expect the price to drop cause her/his action is a contrarian indicator.

I've personally bought or sold and had the stock price move the opposite direction. It's FRUSTRATING!

I've held off buying or selling, "expecting" the price to decrease or increase respectively, only to have it move the "wrong way". It's FRUSTRATING!

Choose good companies, based on fundamentals, then don't stress. Be patient.

I'm mostly LTBH, and my stash has grown even though I've experienced the frustrations.
