IPO Calendar for 2015 - Below is a calendar for
upcoming IPO's in 2015. 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. Last year, we saw some hot IPO's start trading such as GoPro(GPRO), Zoe's
Kitchen (ZOES), Alibaba (BABA) and GrubHub (GRUB).
exciting because new stocks tend to see a pop on the first and second day of trading when market conditions are
good. Why is this you ask? When a new stock IPO's, most of the shares remain locked up for 6 months leaving
only 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,
last year, GoPro (GPRO) priced at $24, opened at $29, raced to $33, dropped to $31, and then closed around
$32. The following week GoPro (GPRO) hit $50 per share. 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. A
few months before and right after the lock-up expiration comes due, the IPO tends to come under heavy selling pressure
with insiders selling stock into the open market. If you plan to trade IPO's, always use tight stop orders and take
profits when you have them.
