Comments on: AvantGo's IPO a Big Success

On Tuesday, AvantGo (AVGO) sold 5.5 million shares at $12 each, $1 above the originally predicted $9 to $11 price range. They raised $66 million, which they intend to use for more marketing efforts and to continue the company's growth. Since its debut, the stock has been as high as $27.75 and opened the day on Thursday at $20.

This capped a month marked by strong rises in Palm-related stocks. Since August 24, shares of Handspring have jumped 100% and shares of Palm have shot up 38%. Much of Handspring's increase can be credited to CIBC Oppenheimer analyst Thomas Sepenzis, who rated it a "strong buy" with a price target of $70. He rates Palm a "buy" with a target of $65.

I'm sure AvantGo will have to make a major turn in their business strategy just in a couple of months. As soon as palms get mobile it is just as outdated as "push" software (you remember?) like PointCast/entryPoint. What's left is a good browser for the palm. But that's not what companies pay for
