The 10 Best IPOs to Buy in 2017

Snapchat and Airbnb will likely offer in 2017, but are they among the best IPOs we could see?


Even though the market for initial public offerings has been light in 2016, we’ve still seen some noteworthy deals. For instance, Acacia Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:ACIA) and AVX Corporation (NYSE:AVX) — two of the market’s best IPOs this year — have nearly tripled, at 190% and 180%, respectively.

But why was 2016’s IPO volume so meager?

Well, the grueling correction during the first year stayed many a hand. Volatile, negative markets are not the right place for a budding publicly traded company. Moreover, the wild presidential race stirred up its own batch of uncertainty.

However, now that we’ve elected a president and things are settling down, we can look to 2017 — and the IPO environment looks awfully promising. Improved clarity on the political landscape and a likelihood of more corporate-friendly taxes should spark bullishness and risk appetite.

The following is a look at the 10 best IPOs that I expect to come to market and thrive in 2017.

Those are great measures, and they guide this list of the best IPOs to buy in 2017:
