IPOs in 3D V – ShockWave Medical: a promising one?

Time for a positive one! When I selected some of the IPOs with very high positive or negative returns,  Shockwave Medical showed a stock-price of nearly 90% above the original pricing. Today, checking at IPOScoop again, it is even 130% !

The question is, do we see something different in the quarterly numbers of companies with an (high) positive and negative return, or is it something else “out there” determining these results? The information about the company in general is available here.

Again, we had to estimate the Q4 2018 number. Dividing the 9-month results from January to September 2018 (available in the Q3 2019) by three, we got an artificial revenue and profit, although the number are very different throughout the quarters. For transparency I provide the links to my sources for Q1, Q2 and Q3 2019

Showing the 3D-graph, a very obvious pattern comes up. The early quarter, before the IPO, shows a negative equity and after the IPO there is suddenly a lot of money. The shape of the building changes dramatically when it comes to the top-view. Revenue and Profit do not always change a lot and it seems its more about the promiss as Shockwave Medical shows huge losses – before and after the IPO.  Data Mining could bring up a predicting value, but it’s good to have some visuals first. That’s why we refer to AnRep3D as “Visual Mining”.ShockWave Medical added to 3D-graph

Double-clicking the screenshot will open the 3D-graph in your browser. For maniputalion of this 3D-graph: Clicking the right mouse-button and moving the mouse up and down at the same time, will zoom the graph in and out. Clicking left while moving the mouse will tilt the graph in different directions. Double clicking in the graph translates it and readjusts the centre at the same time. Just try it – If you don’t know how to get the normal position back, refresh the page in your browser.

A free demo can be downloaded there as well.  It is fully functional, yet limited to one line of data (meaning that only one building will appear, representing one company in a specific year or quarter). For an in-depth explanation, visit our Youtube-channel. There AnRep3D is explained in a couple of short videos.

Looking forward to your comments!

About AnRep3D

AnRep3D is the new company, founded after the handover of Scientassist (together with VRBI) to one of my sons. From now I will focus on three-dimensional graphs for the financial markets, showing the main figures from annual reports in comparison. As per 2021 a second product is available: EnRep3D. It is meant to visualise energy. Although the engine is the same, the texts, manual, website and examples (including blogposts) are focused at energy.
