How to buy Bumble shares from Australia

Bumble is set to go public, here's what you need to know if you're looking to buy in.

Bumble is a Texas-based online dating and social networking platform. Bumble offers two main dating services: Badoo and Bumble. These services cumulatively have more than 40 million monthly active users. Founded in 2014 by Whitney Wolfe and recently listed on NASDAQ, Bumble is known for only allowing female users to make the first contact for straight relationships.

It has not been the most successful debut so far. Since listing shares in Bumble have fallen 61% to $29.08 at the time of writing.

However, for those who think the share price offers value to investors:

How to buy shares in Bumble

  1. Compare share trading platforms. To buy shares in a US company from Australia you'll need to find a trading platform that offers access to US stock markets. If you're just starting out, look for a platform with low brokerage and foreign exchange fees.
  2. Open and fund your brokerage account. Complete an application with your personal and financial details, like your ID and tax file number. Fund your account with a bank transfer, credit card or debit card.
  3. Search for Bumble. Find the share by name or ticker symbol: Research its history to confirm it's a solid investment against your financial goals.
  4. Purchase now or later. Buy today with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until Bumble reaches your desired price. To spread out your risk, look into dollar-cost averaging, which smooths out buying at consistent intervals and amounts.
  5. Decide on how many to buy. Weigh your budget against a diversified portfolio that can minimise risk through the market's ups and downs. You may be able to buy a fractional share of Bumble, depending on your broker.
  6. Check in on your investment. Congratulations, you own a part of Bumble. Optimise your portfolio by tracking how your stock — and even the business — performs with an eye on the long term. You may be eligible for dividends and shareholder voting rights on directors and management that can affect your stock.

What we know about the Bumble IPO

It's listed on the NASDAQ on February 11.

How do similar companies perform?

It's impossible to predict how any stock will perform — and IPOs can be particularly volatile. But evaluating the performance of companies like Bumble can be useful in determining how the market is performing and whether now is a good time to invest in this industry. Select a company to learn more about what they do and how their stock performs, including market capitalisation, the price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, price/earnings-to-growth (PEG) ratio and dividend yield. While this list includes a selection of the most well-known and popular stocks, it doesn't include every stock available.
