Hot anticipated IPO’s of 2014

We all want to make money. Jordan Belfort (Wolf of Wall Street) did, although illegally, but we all want to make money someday and buy the things we have been dreaming about for years. This year, 2014, the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) will have some amazing opportunities of companies that are planning their IPO’s (Initial Public Offering). This means that a company is going public where shares of stock are sold to the general public. There are some companies that have great potential to be successful at the Stock market, as well as show great potential for future stock investors like you and me. Here are some of the hot ones trending for their IPO:

  • Alibaba
  • Square
  • GoPro (rumoured)

In order to qualify to be registered on the stock market a company needs to have a net value of around one billion dollars! This is the case for all of these companies above. Their introduction to the stock market can mean several advantages, but also disadvantages as you can see here:


  • Enlarging their equity base
  • higher prestige level and image value rises forScreen Shot 2014-03-07 at 17.57.27 succeeding the requirements to be on the NYSE
  • Exposure to a new financial cliental, both public and professional


  • company has to give out information, which may give competitors
    an advantage in the market
  • loss of control as new shareholders are now entering the company
  • risk that the funding wanted and needed through an IPO is not made

So do you think that your company has the guts, requirements and necessary flare to be successful at the stock market? It is a very tricky and risky business running a company after an IPO is made, as the company is now not in private control anymore, but rather in the public#s interest. Whether these companies will succeed in the competitive market no one knows, unless you are “Warren or Jimmy Buffet” (Matthew McConaughey) Leave us a comment and tell us what you think!
