Real estate website Zillow soars in IPO debut
(AP) -- Shares of real estate website Zillow have more than doubled in their trading debut.
Zillow, founded in 2004, provides online listings for more than 100 million homes for sale and rent. The portal's "Zestimate" helps estimate property values.
Investors are bidding up Zillow Inc. stock, even though the Seattle company has never posted an annual profit.
It priced shares for $20 per share late Tuesday, $2 more than the top of the range it had predicted Friday.
In midday trading Wednesday, Zillow had risen to $43.02 after trading as high as $60 earlier in the session.
The stock is trading under the symbol "Z" on the Nasdaq exchange.
