Square and Match Lead the Way for 8 New Stocks to Watch

Last week, the market for new stocks got back into gear. And there were certainly hopeful signs, with various offerings posting strong gains.

Yet there are still some nagging issues. After all, the market volatility has returned, and there have also been grueling plunges from former red-hot new stocks, such as Fitbit (FIT) and GoPro (GPRO).

Something else: Last week also saw the postponement of the LoanDepot IPO. No doubt, this could be ominous for the prospects of the upcoming Square offering, which is slated to hit the markets on Thursday. Read

Finally, IPOs Are Back With 8 New Stocks On Deck

New stocks have gone through a very long dry spell. But things should get much better this week, with eight new stocks on deck.

No doubt, it certainly helps that the markets have staged a nice rally after its brutal correction during the late summer.

Granted, most of the new stocks for this week are on the small side. But offerings of companies like LoanDepot and Instructure are large enough to generate plenty of interest from the IPO market. Read

Wednesday, Albertsons postponed its IPO because of rocky market conditions, as well as the plunge in the stock price of Walmart (WMT). In fact, there was also a delay from Neiman Marcus.

Now it’s true that First Data (FDC) was able to get its own deal done — the largest one for the year — but it was far from inspiring. The company priced the offering at $16, which was below the proposed range of $18 to $20 a share. Read

The Neiman Marcus IPO being delayed may actually work out well for the company. Many companies that have launched IPOs lately have had their offering priced below their initial range. There have also been less companies filing IPOs in the third quarter of 2015 when compared to the same time last year, Reuters notes. Read
