SEMrush IPO: how to buy SEMrush shares

SEMrush is a US-based search engine optimisation (SEO) company that’s expected to hold its IPO in 2021. Learn how to buy and sell SEMrush shares – as well as how to analyse the SEMrush share price once the company goes public.

How to buy SEMrush shares

You can buy SEMrush shares through investing in the company directly once it has completed its public listing. You'll be able to buy SEMrush shares on the day of their IPO, though it may take a few hours for the stock to be available - which is the case for all US IPOs and with all brokers.

You can invest in shares with us for zero commission on US shares, and from £3 commission on UK shares. These are our best share dealing commission rates, and they apply to clients who opened three or more positions on their share dealing account in the previous month.

Here’s how to invest in SEMrush shares with us:

  1. Create or log in to your share dealing account and go to our trading platform
  2. Search for ‘SEMrush’
  3. Select ‘buy’ in the deal ticket
  4. Choose the number of shares you want to buy
  5. Confirm your purchase and monitor your investment

This’ll make you a SEMrush shareholder, and you’ll profit from any increase in the SEMrush share price above the price you initially paid to buy the shares. You’ll also receive dividends if the company pays them.

But, keep in mind that investments can fall in value as well as rise – and you might receive less back than you initially invested.

How to sell SEMrush shares

You can sell your SEMrush share investment with us, directly through our platform. You’d do this to either take some of your profits, or to cut your losses. You can choose to sell a portion of your shares, or you can sell all of them at once.

Here’s how to sell your SEMrush share investment with us:

  1. Log in to your share dealing account and go to our platform
  2. Search for ‘SEMrush’
  3. Select ‘sell’ in the deal ticket
  4. Enter the number of shares you want to sell
  5. Confirm the sale
