What Jim Cramer Doesn't Like About Slack's Direct Listing

Slack is going public Thursday. However, the company isn't taking the more traditional route of an Initial Public Offering (IPO). Instead, the company is going public through a direct listing. That means that the company did not get the more traditional night before pricing. Instead, the New York Stock Exchange--where the company is listed--issued a reference price for the company. The reference price was announced after the bell Wednesday and the NYSE set it at $26. But there's one thing that Cramer doesn't like. "I picked $40 as a target because I couldn't tell any idea what the price discovery is. Now you can say, well, Jim, uh, with Uber you had price discovery and it went bad, but...the $26 reference is what I don't like, it's like, what does that mean? How did they come up with that? Did they flip a coin?" Related.
