    hi, more and more chinese conpany go to public in usa market,qihu will go to public in the future now ,please see:

    someone tell me ,ha ,you are internatianal investor(i am a chinese), you can't buy ipo stock,only usa citizen can purchase shares in usa market ipo,

    You have to contact the underwriters to see what the availability is. As a general rule, the better the IPO, the less shares available since preferred customers get first priority.
