  1. If I was a local I would move my money to the U.S., buy U.S. citizenship and move to the U.S. Things are going to get dicey in that neighborhood soon.

  2. Yeah, I wonder why no one is talking about how only 1.5% of shares were issued? If Aramco issued another 1.5% tomorrow, the stock would instantly be diluted by 50%…with a lot more shares where that came from.

  3. Who will dare sell at a lower price within the kingdom?

    With those lunatics, If I were local I would consider that a legitimate concern.
    The homicidal prince, the one the western media was venerating up until the dismemberment, really really wants $2T valuation.

  4. The Saudis floated the IPO on a local exchange and forced locals to buy shares while only floating ~2% of all of the shares. This was really more of a creative tax than an IPO.
