- Lyft shares have fallen 30% since the stock first hit the market in late March, and they’ve fallen 11% from the company’s first closing price.
- But this kind of volatile trading isn’t uncommon for newly public companies, especially as short sellers swoop in and try to capitalize on an initial public offering (IPO)’s early hype wearing off.
