The IPO market is poised to make a comeback in 2017, and we've put together a list of the most anticipated potential new issues worth paying attention to as investors.
Political and economic uncertainty acted as headwinds for the IPO market in 2016. Only 128 IPOs were filed last year - the lowest number since 2009, during the financial crisis.
But investor optimism is up. Plus, the Trump administration has the potential to deliver a more business-friendly regulatory environment, which can trigger an uptick in new issues.
Right now there are 178 "unicorns" - private companies with valuations over $1 billion - that could begin testing the market. A few have already started paperwork for a 2017 filing.
That said, not every company that goes public this year will be a good investment. Knowing how to distinguish between companies that offer genuine profit potential and those that are overhyped and overvalued is critical.
This exclusive report includes our list of the top 10 2017 IPOs to watch. From ride-hailing services and music-streaming companies to meal-kit delivery services and file-storage companies, these could be the most promising deals of the year.
We closely examine each company to help you decide if it would be worthy of your investment dollars, looking at ability to generate revenue, current profitability (or lack thereof), and potential obstacles to a company's success.
Here's what else you'll learn in this special report:
- The two most important criteria to look at when evaluating any IPO
- Key factors used to gauge the likelihood that companies will want to go public in a given year
- Why you shouldn't be swayed by a company's lofty valuation - and which number to look at instead that's a better indicator of profits
