There were some big winners from Snapchat’s initial public offering (IPO) yesterday. Shares in the company closed 44 percent above their listing price, making the company’s two co-founders worth more than $5 billion each.

The stock’s rise also paid off for a high school in California that made millions by investing in the company.
