Wondering how you can invest in SpaceX?

I’ve got you covered.

SpaceX is Elon Musk’s $100 billion space traveling company.

Musk’s venture transports NASA astronauts to the International Space Station, delivers communications satellites into orbit, takes people for joy rides into space, and will eventually transport people to Mars.

SpaceX is the first company to reuse the same rocket, the first to ferry passengers into space, and the first private company to reach a $100 billion valuation.

So, how can you buy SpaceX stock?

Can You Buy SpaceX Stock?

SpaceX is still a private company, which means you cannot buy shares of SpaceX stock at this time. Its shares are not listed on any stock exchanges.

This means you can’t buy SpaceX stock – at least, not directly.

Right now, SpaceX is owned privately by Elon Musk, a few public companies, and many private equity firms.

However, as we learned with TikTok stock, there may be a way to invest in SpaceX indirectly.

How to Invest in SpaceX Stock (Indirectly)

Although you can’t buy shares of SpaceX as a retail investor, you can invest in it indirectly by buying shares in one of the companies that owns it.

There are only 2 publicly-traded companies that have invested in SpaceX:

    Bank of America is a $270 billion investment bank and financial services holding company headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

    Bank of America invested $250 million in SpaceX in November 2018 at a valuation of around $30 billion. Its position in SpaceX is likely worth $1 billion.

    Google is a $1.5 trillion company which primarily sells advertising services across its Google brands and YouTube. It also invests in a variety of early stage tech companies.

    Alphabet invested $900 million in SpaceX in January 2015 at a valuation of $12 billion. It was part of another $337 million investment in December 2021. In total, Google’s investment is likely worth more than $10 billion.

The other investors in SpaceX are all private equity firms, which are not public companies.

Remember, both Bank of America and Alphabet (Google) have significant businesses, which their investment in SpaceX is just a small piece of. You should perform due diligence into their entire businesses before buying their shares.

How to Buy the SpaceX IPO

As a retail investor, you cannot buy SpaceX stock. Not yet, anyways. We must wait until its IPO.

The company has not announced when it will go public, but at some point its investors will be looking for an exit. This exit will likely happen through an IPO.

In addition to pressure from investors who want to sell their stakes, SpaceX is a very capital-intensive business. It’s expensive to send things into space. 

The easiest way to receive more funding would be for SpaceX to become a public company via an IPO. If it does decide to go public, you should be ready.

Here are the steps you will need to take to buy shares of SpaceX when it becomes available:

  1. Create or login to your brokerage account (if you don’t have one, we recommend eToro – it’s free)
  2. Search for SpaceX
  3. Select how many shares you want to buy
  4. Place your order
  5. Monitor your trade

Remember, you cannot yet buy SpaceX stock. You cannot buy shares of SpaceX stock until its IPO.
