    Text size

The third week of April is going to be a busy one for our IPO calendar. Six companies will be making their debut including some of the most anticipated offerings of the year so far.

The aftermarket has remained strong with recent offerings like Pinnacle Foods (NYSE: PF), which appreciated more than 20% following the IPO. As long as the equity markets remain stable and pricing in the aftermarket remains solid we should continue to see strong demand from institutional investors for IPOs.

Let's take a look at what investors have to watch in the IPO market next week.
