Tiptree (TIPT) Stock Rockets 170% Since March: But Why?

Ever since Tiptree Inc (NASDAQ: TIPT) announced the initial public offering of its subsidiary company The Fortega Group LLC in mid-March, its stock has recorded strong gains. Since then, the stock has gone up by 170%.

The roadshow for the Fortega IPO is going to start this week and it might be a good time for investors to take a look at the finer details. Fortega, which is the insurance arm of Tiptree, is going to offer its shares in the price band of $15 to $17 a share.

The offer price represents twice the book value. It is also important to note that if the share lists at $15 a share, then Tiptree is going to have a deal stake that is going to be worth $23 per share. Tiptree believes that The Fortega Group has considerable value and that has not yet been reflected in its own stock price. TIPT stock is up by 21.15% at $13.58 on Wednesday’s morning session.
