Put the pin on the history of Pinterest (PINS) .
It all started back in 2009, when Ben Silbermann and Evan Sharp began developing Pinterest.
And two years later, in 2011, it became one of the top social media sites. And, a year later, in 2012, it actually overcame Tumblr--the micro-blogging website.
Fast-forward to 2019, and Pinterest is now a public company that trades under the ticker "PINS."
The company officially began trading on April 18. The company's first trade was priced at $19 a share, higher than the original pricing of $15 to $17 a share.
As of May 15, the company has a market cap of nearly $16 billion. When it filed for its IPO earlier in 2019, the valuation was around $12 billion. To get the latest on Pinterest, read Nvidia, Pinterest, Luckin Coffee, Amazon and Deliveroo - 5 Things You Must Know.
