Ask HN: Is it normal for companies to purchase stakes in other companies at IPO?
1 point by samstave 1125 days ago | discuss
I was just thinking, do companies typically/ever attempt to buy IPO shares?

I.E. Do you think Google, as a company, is going to try and buy up a ton of shares of the Facebook IPO? Why or why not. Would this be good or bad?
