How to buy ByteDance stock when it goes public

Here's everything we know so far about the ByteDance IPO.

There's speculation that ByteDance, the parent company of popular app TikTok, may be planning an IPO. Word this week that the company had hired a CFO, Xiaomi executive Shou Zi Chew, renewed that speculation.

But while rumors have been swirling for over a year now, ByteDance has yet to publicly file or confirm that it's planning to list stock on a public exchange. (There have also been rumors about a possible TikTok IPO, but no details.)

If the company does go public, US investors will need an international brokerage account to buy stocks.
