The day Snap investors have been watchful for is here, and it has not been good for the company.

Monday marks the first day of trade after the company’s first jail duration expired. 400 million shares owned by early investors are now accessible to be traded freely.

This is the first such death given the company went open in March. An estimated 1.2 billion shares are planned to turn accessible for trade for the first time over the next few weeks.

Shares of Snap are down 1.39% on Monday, and trade at about $13.62.

One bank thinks the jail death is the ideal time to buy, as the batch cost falls due to selling of the formerly sealed shares. 

Shorting the company forward of its jail death was so popular, the trade became too costly for some investors. Snap has been on a downward trend forward of Monday. Shares are down 20.17% given the IPO at $17 and the batch has been environment new all-time lows for weeks.

Betting on Snap seems to be a gamble on the company’s chief, Evan Spiegel. The CEO is one of the few people that can see opposite the heavily siloed groups at the company. Spiegel has also been sincerely secretive about Snap’s future plans. Betting on Snap requires a “religious” devotion, a person close to the company told Business Insider’s Alex Heath.

Snap has recovered some of its early waste on Monday. Shares were down as much as 3% in premarket trade on Monday. Shares are now trade at $13.61.
