No official IPO date has been set for Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., but analysts predict the company could file for its U.S. IPO as soon as the end of April.
While investors wait for the official date, the Chinese e-commerce firm has been on a spending spree. In the last year Alibaba has spent nearly $3.5 billion on acquisitions covering various industries.
I'm sure everyone has read at least one story about an investor who made a fortune buying some now-famous company on the day it originally started trading on the open market.
In some cases, the key to that fortune was buying a relatively obscure company that no one had heard of and then waiting for it to become the next Apple.
La Quinta Holdings Inc. (NYSE: LQ) stock was down in its first day of trading today (Wednesday) after the company's IPO price disappointed early investors.
The company announced late Tuesday that it was offering 38.3 million shares at $17 each. The company had estimated offering 37.2 million shares at a price range of $18 to $21. The La Quinta (NYSE: LQ) IPO price was lower than expected, and the stock opened down today. But these bullish indicators still remain for LQ.

The 2014 IPO calendar will see one of its busiest weeks yet when 14 companies make their public debut this week.
According to the research firm Renaissance Capital, 71 companies have already gone public this year. That's an increase of nearly 122% from this time last year. A total of 116 IPOs have been priced in 2014, which is the highest total in more than a decade.
GrubHub Inc. (NYSE: GRUB) is the latest initial public offering (IPO) to take the market by storm in 2014, opening at $40 today (Friday), or 54% higher than its offer price. Through the IPO, the company raised $192 million, which easily beat previous projections.
The money raised in the IPO gives GRUB a valuation of approximately $2 billion.
GrubHub priced its shares at $26 on Thursday, which was above its proposed range of $23 to $25 per share. The GrubHub IPO had been gaining momentum for weeks, as the company revised its range last week from an initial range of $20 to $22.
A spate of Internet IPOs have made news in 2014, including the headline-grabbing initial public offerings of Alibaba Group Holding (not out yet) and King Digital Media (which went public last week).
When Alibaba confirmed that it will bring its IPO to an American exchange, analysts predicted that it could be one of the largest Internet IPOs in U.S. history, surpassing Facebook Inc.'s (Nasdaq: FB) $16 billion.
As the Internet IPO market heats up in 2014, Here's a look back at the 10 biggest Internet IPOs in U.S. history...
Investors can add another deal to the 2014 IPO calendar, with the GrubHub IPO expected to take place on Thursday, April 3.
Today, Grubhub officials announced that they have upped the price range on Grubhub stock to $23 to $25, from a previous range of $20 to $22.
Last week, GrubHub officials announced that they plan to raise approximately $155 million in an initial public offering by selling 7.03 million shares.
Now that the GrubHub IPO financial info has been released, investors are investigating the company.
This week's IPO calendar has eight companies making their public debut, and the GrubHub IPO will steal most of the headlines.
GrubHub plans to raise $148 million by offering 7 million shares at a range of $20 to $22. By meeting that total, GrubHub will have a valuation of $1.8 billion. GrubHub will hit the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday, April 3. Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C), Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS), and Allen & Co. are serving as the lead underwriters on the deal.
With the number of companies that have hit the IPO market in the last year, many are wondering if the market has become oversaturated.
According to the IPO investment firm Renaissance Capital, 222 companies went public in 2013, raising a combined $54.9 billion. That made 2013 the biggest year for IPOs since the "dot-com" bubble of the early 2000s.
But before labeling the 2014 IPO market as a repeat of the dot-com era bubble, check out these statistics...
The Alibaba IPO is officially coming to the United States in 2014, and the deal is expected to raise as much as $15 billion for China's largest e-commerce company.
A Reuters report in February polled eight analysts who estimated that Alibaba could reach a valuation of $140 billion.
Naturally, investors want in on the Alibaba IPO, which is likely to be one of the largest IPOs in U.S. history. Those who are able to get their hands on shares of Alibaba before it goes public stand to make quite a profit.
There's still no official date set for the Alibaba IPO, but that hasn't stopped analysts and investors from speculating about the size of the company's initial public offering.
According to some analysts, the Alibaba IPO could raise almost as much as Facebook Inc.'s (Nasdaq: FB) 2012 IPO, which raised $16 billion.
Facebook was valued at $104 billion when it made its public debut on May 17, 2012. At the time, that was the highest valuation of any American IPO.
Last week, King Digital Entertainment PLC (NYSE: KING) officially begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange. The maker of popular mobile game "Candy Crush Saga" has priced its shares at $22.50. The 10-year-old company raised $500 million at this price.
After months of speculation, we're one step closer to the Box IPO, as the company filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Monday.
Box Inc. announced that it plans to raise up to $250 million in an initial public offering that could take place as soon as April.
King Digital Entertainment is the biggest deal on the IPO calendar this week, but there are nine other IPOs to watch.
