Fortune has a good article today about the pitfalls of investing in a hot tech company after it goes public. The article, written by Kevin Kelleher, is entitled "OpenTable's Rise and Fall is a Cautionary Tale," and discusses the rise and fall of OpenTable's stock price and the reasons for this. Essentially, the article identifies two primary reasons for the rise and fall of the stock price: the "herd mentality of momentum investors"; and the "company's business is beginning to face some headwinds." It's worth a read. Here's the link: http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2012/01/03/opentable-rise-and-fall/
