IPO Calendar for 2014 - Below is a calendar for
upcoming IPO's in 2014. This list of new initial public offerings shows you the top IPO's of the week and new stocks
that will soon begin trading on the NYSE or NASDAQ.
What is an IPO? IPO is short for Initial Public Offering
which is another phrase for a new stock listed on an exchange. Each month, the IPO Calendar fills up with companies
wanting to go public and issue stock. In 2013, we saw some hot IPO's start trading such as Noodles & Company
(NDLS), Twitter (TWTR), Potbelly (PBPB), RocketFuel (FUEL), VoxelJet (VJET), and ExOne Corp (XONE). See additional details about
these Top IPO's below.
IPO's are exciting because
new stocks tend to get a pop on the first and second day of trading. Why is this you ask? When a new stock
IPO's, most of the shares remain locked up for 6-12 months leaving a small amount of stock trading during IPO
day. With such little stock trading combined with the high demand for an IPO, you get a buying frenzy which
produces some of the biggest gainers of the year. For example, in 2013, Noodles & Company (NDLS) priced
at $18, opened at $32.90, raced to $37, dropped to $33, and then closed around $35. The following week, Noodles
& Company (NDLS) hit $52 per share. I was able to buy this IPO at $32.90 and haven't sold a single share.
Combined with the other shares I bought, I own NDLS around $41.70 and the stock trades at $47. If you buy these IPO's
for a trade, don't forget to take profits! Insiders have their stock locked up during the first 6 months of going
public. When the lock-up expiration comes due, the IPO tends to come under heavy selling pressure with insiders selling
their stock into the open market. If you plan to trade IPO's, always use tight stop orders and take profits when you
