IPO Market 2013: What's Next After the White-Hot Start

Initial Public Offering

The IPO market has had a strong first half in 2013, in some cases delivering double-digit gains for those who have ventured into IPO investing.

As the stock market has staged an impressive rally, investor demand to get into the IPO market is returning to pre- credit-crisis levels. The second quarter was actually the most active three-month period for IPOs in six years.

So far in 2013, we have seen 92 deals. The average gain for initial buyers is around 20%.

The pace seems to be picking up, as the first quarter saw 31 deals raise about $7.6 billion, and the second quarter had 61 offerings raise more than $13 billion.

Financial firms, including real estate investment trusts (REITs), have been the most active industry, with 35 offerings. Healthcare companies are right behind, closing in on 34 deals so far this year.

Some analysts think we could see more than 200 deals by the end of the year.

That means more opportunity for IPO investing for double-digit gains...here's where to look.

Get in the Ground Floor of This $1 Trillion Industry

How many times have you studied the stock charts of Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG), Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) or Amazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN) - and wished you could travel back in time to become an early stage investor in just those sorts of king-making companies?

We can't, of course, but I can offer the next best thing: I can tell you about the brand-new industry where the next stock like this will likely come from.

I'm talking about 3D printing.

Folks who've been following my work know that I've been predicting this sector's emergence for some time. Back in March, I told readers of our sister newsletter Money Morning that 3D printing was a $1 trillion industry in the making. In October, in a note to all of you, I followed up with a roundup report on the newest breakthroughs.

In every piece I've written, my key message was always the same: 3D printing will give tech investors the next real shot at windfall profits.
