As noted by Statista, Snap's early stage investors will earn themselves a very large profit since they managed to buy into the private company at very low valuations. But ordinary investors looking to buy Snap's IPO aren't guaranteed to share the same outcome. There are many examples of highly anticipated tech IPOs whose stocks are trading at a lower price today than they were when it began trading for the first time ever.
Here is a list of stocks investors might consider to be a failed IPO:
- Zynga Inc ZNGA - down 73 percent since its 2011 IPO.
- Fitbit Inc FIT - down 68 percent since its 2015 IPO.
- GoPro Inc GPRO - down 60 percent since its 2014 IPO.
- Twitter Inc TWTR - down 38 percent since its 2013 IPO.
- Pandora Media Inc P - down 18 percent since its 2011 IPO.

- Alibaba Group Holding Ltd BABA - up 52 percent since its 2014 IPO.
- Godaddy Inc GDDY - up 86 percent since its 2015 IPO.
