IPO Calendar 2014 Update: Following June's slow start, the IPO calendar is once again loaded this week as eight companies make their public debut.
Just two companies held IPOs last week, in what was one of the slowest weeks of 2014. This year has been the busiest for IPOs since the "dot-com" era of 1999-2001, with 117 companies already debuting year to date.
And for investors, that's meant an abundance of investment opportunities as the average IPO has returned a 13.2% gain so far this year, according to Renaissance Capital.
For investors looking to profit from the IPO market this week, here are the eight companies making their public debut.
