Wired: IPOs Still Beating the Odds

“Ever since December, IPO analyst David Menlow has been waiting
for the inevitable slowdown in the IPO market. … For the time
being, however, IPO investors can still relax. Analysts see little
chance of a correction setting in next week, when approximately 17
companies are planning initial stock offerings.”

“Besides Infineon, Menlow expects a few other companies to
weigh in with splashy debuts.
The list includes Linux
software developer Caldera Systems
, networking products
supplier RADVision.com, and lastminute.com, a European firm that
sells last-minute gifts and airline tickets online.”

“Investors are also looking a few weeks ahead, when the
IPO calendar includes sizeable offerings from cut-rate computer
manufacturer and Linux software and services provider
LinuxCare
, and search engine Alta Vista, among others.”
