Today's IPO for South Korean e-commerce company Coupang (NASDAQ: CPNG) opened for trading at $63.50 after pricing 30 million shares at a better-than-expected price of $35 per share. Coupang previously priced its IPO in a $32-$34 range.

Softbank holds a 35.1% stake in the company, which is described as "Korea's Amazon."

Analysts are bullish on the company and its prospects.

“The fact is that (Coupang is) becoming the biggest e-commerce business within Korea and 24% market share, I think, it might actually even rise further. It is possible that they can actually gain as much as 30%+ over the next few years,” Daniel Yoo, head of global asset allocation at Yuanta Securities, told CNBC.
