Renaissance Capital, a manager of IPO-focused ETFs, reported 275 stock launches last year. That's a 23% increase from 2013. Last year's record number of IPOs also lent a huge hand 2014's bull market.

Alibaba IPO Price May Come at a Discount to Investors

Alibaba square

According to a Bloomberg report, the Alibaba IPO price could be 22% lower than most analyst valuations when the company goes public later this year - but the reason is actually good for investors.

A discount would not signify weakness in the IPO – rather, it would be Alibaba’s attempt to avoid a flop like the one Facebook experienced during its initial public offering, when it ended up losing half its market value in four months as investors worried about slowing growth.

Here's how a more modest valuation will actually help Alibaba investors...

There's nothing we like better than discovering a "back" way into the current hot deal.

It's just so gratifying to find that sorta-secret way to bag profits from the IPO or merger that's dominating the headlines and that everyone you work with is so excited to talk about.

The year is nearly half over, and the mainstream media continues to obsess over a whipsaw stock market that's been cutting highflyers down to size.

The sullen outlook has lots of retail investors dumping tech stocks and running for the "safety" of the sidelines. That's a mistake no one should be making.

But tech stocks - and especially biotech stocks - are poised to do very well in the last half of 2014.

And there are four big reasons why…

Uber IPO: Issues Facing the $10 Billion Driver-On-Demand App

20140516-Uber-IPO

According to a Bloomberg report yesterday (Thursday), Uber is in talks to begin a new round of fundraising that would value the on-demand taxi booking company at more than $10 billion.

The $10 billion valuation would be a dramatic increase from $3.5 billion it was valued at last summer.

An Uber deal probably won’t make the 2014 IPO calendar, and Uber stock would undoubtedly be a hot commodity and one of larger recent tech IPOs when it hits the market. But there are still a number of issues facing the company…

Time to Turn High-Tech "Rust" into Gold

As a tech analyst, I spent my early years in Detroit, and I know a lot about the Rust Belt.

In fact, when I moved to the West Coast in the mid-1980s, I drove a Honda that had already started rusting. Every once in a while, some wag would come up and ask if I was from the Midwest.

No doubt, rust like that was obvious. But in my more than three decades of working with Silicon Valley companies, I've found high-tech "rust" may be a lot less obvious and much more insidious.

The good news is that while this "rust" often takes down companies, it happens to be setting up three cash-generating firms that are handing us a big opportunity now... Full Story

MSFT stock

In his first “report card” since taking the reins of Microsoft Corp. in February, CEO Satya Nadella showed why he was exactly the right choice to get MSFT stock moving again.

Microsoft beat expectations in when it reported earnings Thursday mostly on the strength of its cloud computing products – Nadella’s area of expertise, and the single most promising business segment for the Redmond-Wash.-based tech giant.
