    (First, Mod's I had no idea where to put this, feel free to move).


    Anyways, is anyone else here following the news that Dolby will be having an IPO later this year or early 2005? I've told my broker to keep an eye out for this stock and I'm thirsty for more information. We all know our hobby is growing more mainstream everyday, and I think this is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a company with a large growth potential.

    What are everyone elses thoughts? Anyone else plan to invest?

    You wouldn't exactly be getting in on the "ground floor", Dolby has been around for a while [​IMG] If I have the $$ when they offer, and the price isn't crazy, I may consider it.

    This is true, I meant that more from the stock poing of view. As in I would be buying the stock from the ground floor. Do you have any idea what they expect it to open at?

    It's not really an HT topic; so I'm moving it to After Hours.

    You can already buy into DTS....if you like wild rides [​IMG] Since they've landed being incorporated into the HD DVD format (which may or may not appear soon) the might even have an edge over Dolby....not for the faint of heart.

    I'm guessing Ray is going IPO so he can retire.

    A recent news report stated that he was doing it in large part as a part of estate planning (retirement, inheritance taxes, etc.)
