IPO Grey Market Premium (GMP)

GMP stands for grey market premium. It's a critical aspect of the IPO punting business that really gets people going on what's happening "outside" the legit markets.

The grey market is an unofficial market that exists in parallel with the official market. In the context of IPOs, the grey market is where unlisted IPO shares are traded.

It is here, at least in some portion, that the IPO punters get their kicks. And they get it by tracking what's called the IPO GMP.

The grey market premium or GMP is the amount, over and above the issue price, that traders are willing to pay or ask for to trade these yet to be listed IPO shares.

The IPO's GMP gives you an idea of the market's perception of the company and how it will perform on the listing day.

If you are looking forward to applying for an IPO, sure take a look to see what could happen on listing day.

But remember, the IPO's GMP shouldn't be the only factor influencing your decision on whether or not to hold or exit the stock.

If you are an investor, then we would say take the IPO GMP with a pinch of salt.
