Yes, but look at their financials.... Damn that is a small margin!

That said, I order a lot of stuff from Newegg.

What happened to the free gifts they used to give with orders? I have a newegg shirt and a paper weight. I miss the old egg.

Okay, I have to ask since this is not my purview.

If I wanted to purchase stock in their initial offering what would i have to do?

Have tons of money already :(

Pre-open IPO stock purchases are usually heavily restricted to the big kids. Otherwise you're stuck with the rest of us.

You might want to read this to understand why it's hard to get shares before it's available in the general exchange:

Any rumor as to when the IPO will hit the street?

Generally speaking -

Either be an i-bank or have a very close relationship to one (and be very wealthy already. We're talking VERY, like 10m or more with that bank alone.)

Some companies have worked to get more 'average joes' involved with their IPOs in the past. But this is the notable exception not the rule.
