There are 10 upcoming IPOs this week, including the largest initial public offering by a real-estate investment trust (REIT) ever.
This week's IPOs should raise roughly $4.16 billion, bringing the 2014 total to $82.6 billion. That total is by far the largest for the IPO market in the last decade. In fact, IPOs have averaged a full-year total of just $38.6 billion over the past 10 years. This year's group of IPOs has already more than doubled that average - with more than a month left to go.
