Spotify's stock market debut strikes a chord with investors

  Spotify's stock market debut strikes a chord with investors Spotify's opening act on Wall Street struck a chord with investors betting the unprofitable company's trend-setting music streaming service will maintain its early lead over Apple and other powerful challengers. After several hours of anticipation Tuesday morning, Spotify's shares traded as high as $169 in their stock market debut before falling back slightly. The stock closed at $149.01 — well above its previous high of $132.50 in deals worked out during Spotify's 12-year history as a privately held company.

Spotify on Wednesday announced a new bundle deal called " Spotify Premium, now with Hulu " that combines the two subscriptions for .99 per month. The deal bundles the .99 Spotify Premium subscription and the standard .99 Hulu with Limited Commercials tier, for a saving.
