The third worst performing IPO so far in 2011 is Boingo Wireless (WIFI). Based on Wednesday's close at $9.72, the stock has lost 28% since pricing at $13.50 per.
The Los Angeles-based provider of wireless mobile Internet access services got a lukewarm reception on its first day of trading on May 4, losing 10%, and things haven't improved since then.
The business model may be a bit flawed as Boingo is all about providing public Wi-fi hotspots, but many places already offer similar accessfor free. The company reports its first public quarter on Tuesday June 7th.--Written by Debra Borchardt in New York.
