There were 70 initial public offerings in the first half — six more than in the first half of 2012. Not quite back to the levels set in 2007 … but good nonetheless.
Last July, I picked five former IPO stars whose stocks had fallen on times but looked ready to make a comeback. A year later, four have performed beautifully, with Green Dot (GDOT) the only exception.
This time around I’m going to pick five dogs from the group of 70 first-half IPOs that I feel are coming to come to life in the next six to 12 months. Here’s hoping I’m even half as successful as last year.
