Tech floats MYOB, Liquid Audio double on debut

Its second day of trading and MYOB shares were still reaching heights of more than double their issue price, closing today at a high of $4.94.

Accounting software company MYOB debuted on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) on Friday, opening at $4.01, more than double the $2 issue price. MYOB shares reached a peak of $4.58 and closed at $4.40.

Today 1,701,086 shares changed hands, closing 54 cents higher than Friday's closing.

US firm Liquid Audio achieved similar feats when it listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange on Friday, shares doubling in price from the initial cost of $US15 per share, up 143.7 per cent to $US36.50.

The company, which produces software to publish and encode music that can be downloaded from the Internet, issued 4.2 million shares under its initial public offering (IPO).

The dramatic takeoff of the company follows the success of other recent Internet-related IPOs in general and with the increasing attention paid to companies that offer digitally delivered music, analysts said.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
