    Spotify went public today. Market Watch has some of the numbers:

    The stock’s first trade was at $165.90 at 12:43 p.m. ET for 5.7 million shares, according to FactSet, or 27% above the reference price of $132. The stock then rose to an intraday high of $169, before falling to a low of $148.48. The stock was recently 9.8% below its opening price in afternoon trade.

    If only I had money to burn, I'd buy some of this. They're in a pretty stable spot and haven't (as far as I know) made any decisions to annoy their customers like Apple Music has.

    I would stay away from it for now. Never good when your competitors are Apple and Amazon.

    Truly hope they've got some way to make their model profitable without raising prices on users or lowering royalties on artists, but what the hell do I know
