Spotify Closes First Day of Trading on NYSE

Yesterday was Spotify’s first day of public trading on the New York Stock Exchange. The first day of trading saw the company earn a real-life valuation of $26.7 Billion. The stock price of the world’s biggest music streaming company traded as high as $169 USD per share, but closed the day at $149.95.

He predicted $130 per share market value for the stock this year.
