There's a full list of IPOs to watch this week, with seven companies going public, according to Renaissance Capital, a manager of IPO-focused ETFs.
The upcoming IPOs this week include three energy companies, two biotech companies, an education provider, and a real estate investment trust (REIT).
The largest upcoming IPO this week is Invitation Homes (NYSE: INVH) with a proposed $1.5 billion U.S. offering. The company will go public as a REIT.
The company manages single-family homes and oversees 50,000 homes across the United States that were built after the 2008-2009 real estate bubble.
Invitation Homes also leases single-family homes. The company bet there would be rising demand for renting over homeownership because of the housing bubble.
That bet is paying off. Homeownership is at its lowest level in 50 years.
And the demand for renting single-family homes could continue to grow…
The U.S. Federal Reserve raised interest rates in December, and the Fed expects to raise rates three more times in 2017. Higher interest rates will make it more difficult to acquire loans, which means fewer people can afford to buy homes.
Invitation Homes plans to sell shares of INVH between $18 and $21 per share.
The INVH IPO may be the biggest in terms of deal size this week, but it's certainly not the only one to watch.
Here are the six other companies expected to go public this week…
