Hello Investors,
IPO Lullaby
Looking at Renaissance Capital's IPO calendar, we're slated to have 4 total IPOs between August 6th and September 4th.  While August is historically a slow IPO month (there were only 9 in August 2014), issuers look to be waiting until after Labor Day (and maybe after a market rebound) to price their hopeful IPOs.
Looking for a dose of optimism? Ernst & Young published a state of the M&A and IPO markets with a somewhat bullish sentiment: the implications on the tech markets from this research has been well-summarized by John Rampton at TechCrunch.
