As we move deeper into the second half of the year, we're seeing a robust IPO market that has been able to shake off 2012's Facebook IPO shame.
So far this year there have been 116 debut offerings, the strongest pace since 2007.
As Money Morning Executive Editor Bill Patalon explained earlier this week in his Private Briefing investment service column, the IPO market in 2013 is "white hot."
From Bill's analysis: The market has locked and loaded on about $4 billion in U.S. IPOs so far this year, Bloomberg News reports. At that pace, companies "going public" would raise the most this year since at least 1999, the financial news service says.
