The IPO Risk-Factor in the Market

By Nicole Urken

As a follow-up to my previous post, am including a more in-depth analysis of the aftermarket performance of IPOs. As has been noted, plaguing the markets year to date has been the bloodbath in the momentum names--particularly names with no earnings. One thesis regarding the pain in these names is the simple law of supply and demand. Simply put, there is just too much supply....Just look at these aftermarket returns...

The Lesson of Allergan

By Nicole Urken

Just over one year ago, when Allergan stood at about $115, worries abounded, causing the stock to drop to the low $80s by the middle of 2013, as the overall equity market continued to roar. This underperformance spooked many investors, but that low was a huge opportunity, as the stock has posted a stellar run ever since, now at new highs at over $130. I bring this up now because many are talking about a bubble in biotech, particularly given surges from recent IPOs.
