10 IPOs on Tap for This Week

Biotech, cement, supermarkets, forex, waste management and casinos are in the mix

   

IPO performance was mixed  last week. In fact, there were three deals that had to be postponed (one was because a company agreed to be acquired).

Here’s a rundown of the offerings:

company ticker return (%)
Cempra CEMP 0
AVG Technologies AVG -18.2
Greenway GWAY 32.3
Matador Resources MTDR 0
U.S. Silica SLCA -5.2

Despite the volatility, the average return was still nearly 2%, which shows how one deal can make up for the duds!
