How To Buy Airbnb Stock (ABNB)
How To Buy Airbnb Stock (ABNB)

With more than 4 million hosts and 800 million guests on the Airbnb platform, Airbnb has gone from a niche brand to a household name. Now that Airbnb is listed, you can invest in the future growth of the company.

If you’re banking on a recovery in the travel and leisure industry after the Covid-19 pandemic subsides, here’s everything you need to know to buy Airbnb stock.

How to buy shares in abnb stock (ABNB).

1. Open a brokerage account

To buy ABNB, you will need to open an investment account if you do not already have one. You should focus on those with no transaction fees and minimum investment.

Most brokers and investing apps allow you to choose the type of account that suits your goals. The two main options you have are an individual retirement account (IRA) or a taxable investment account.

IRAs give you tax benefits when investing for retirement. Depending on your situation and goals, you can usually choose between a Traditional IRA, a Roth IRA, or a SEP IRA. It is important to remember that if you withdraw before age 59, you will face taxes and penalties.

Taxable accounts lack the tax benefits of an IRA, but they can provide more flexibility. That’s because you can deposit as much money as you want and withdraw your winnings at any time. If you lose money on your investment, you can even deduct some of the loss from your taxes by collecting tax losses.


2. Think about how much you want to invest in abnb stock

To find out how much you can invest in Airbnb, you need to ask yourself four simple questions:

What is your budget? Do you have enough money each month to cover your expenses – at least some superannuation and emergency funds? The rest can flow into investments like Airbnb.

What is the current price of ABNB? Stock prices are always moving, but you can check recent price trends to get an idea of ​​how much a stock might cost. Over the past year, Airbnb’s stock has surpassed $100 a share. This means that unless your broker offers fractional stock trading, topping up Airbnb stock can be expensive.

What is your investment strategy? Most investors follow one of two strategies: buy a lot of stocks at a time, or slowly build up a small number of stocks over time. The latter method, called dollar cost averaging, allows you to invest in small increments on a regular basis and can help you reduce the amount you pay per share over time. It also reduces the risk of accidentally buying too much when prices are high or accidentally buying when prices are low.

What about other investments? Airbnb probably won’t be your only equity investment, so you should consider how it fits into other investments you own. “Airbnb is a growth stock that hasn’t been consistently profitable,” said Matt Frankel, certified financial planner (CFP) and senior analyst at The Motley Fool. “As a result, Airbnb is best suited as part of a well-rounded equity portfolio for risky investors with years of experience.”

3. Due Diligence

Before you buy abnb stock, or any stock, do some homework. You want to review the company’s financial records, future plans and corporate structure to make sure you are comfortable with its strategy and confident in its potential.

Public companies like Airbnb are required to file quarterly and annual financial statements with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing. You can view Airbnb’s annual and quarterly reports on the SEC’s Investor Relations page or on the database. You can supplement this with expert analysis from your brokerage firm or third-party providers like Morningstar.

4. Place an order

You can buy stocks by logging into your brokerage account or investing app. Then just enter the Airbnb ticker symbol (ABNB) and the number of shares you want to buy or the dollar amount you want to invest.


You may have to choose the type of order you want to place. By default, you might enter a so-called market order, which means you buy stock at Airbnb’s current price.

You also have the option to enter a limit order to limit your purchases to a certain price threshold. If the ABNB exceeds this amount, you will not buy shares. Limit orders are especially useful if you only want to buy a stock at a certain price, or if you are concerned that the stock will experience drastic price movements and your order will be executed if the price is too high.

Since Airbnb trades on Nasdaq, your transaction will be executed during normal business hours (9:30am to 4:00pm EST Monday-Friday) unless you can extend the pre- or post-listing mediation time.

5. Monitor your account

When investing in a single stock like Airbnb, it’s best not to put things aside and forget about them. Instead, you should check your investment progress from time to time.

You may want to track how prices have changed over time compared to major benchmarks like the Nasdaq 100 or S&P 500 and stocks in similar industries. You should also keep abreast of how its financials have changed or evolved over time by paying attention to its public filings and industry reports, as you did before buying from ABNB.


How to Sell Airbnb Stock

To sell your Airbnb stock, log into your investment account and enter the stock symbol and the amount you wish to sell.

If you sell your stock for a profit, you need to consider capital gains tax. If you want a significant gain (or a significant loss), you should consult a tax professional about how best to manage your income.

Other Ways to Invest in Airbnb

If you love to travel or make money hosting Airbnb, investing in the company may seem like a no-brainer. However, keep in mind that investing in individual stocks can be extremely risky and costly, even for seasoned traders.

That’s why financial experts recommend investing the bulk of your portfolio in index funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), which hold hundreds or even thousands of stocks. This greatly reduces the risk that your investment experiences drastic price fluctuations that could cause you to lose money.

Fortunately, Airbnb is easy to find among funds: according to, there are about 100 ETFs that hold Airbnb stock and were recently included in the Nasdaq 100, and you can get exposure to any Nasdaq 100 fund.
