If the stars align correctly, the U.S. IPO market could see its busiest week ahead in almost a year.
There are nine initial public offerings scheduled to trade beginning Wednesday, ranging from a mattress retailer to consumer review website Angie’s List Inc. The last time IPO investors had such a full calendar in front of them was in December 2010.
Getting all nine of them out the door will require cooperation from the broader stock market, which took its biggest daily dive since mid-September on Wednesday as investors panicked in the face of Italy’s surging bond yields. The following two days of stock market gains helped the Dow Jones Industrial Average end the week in positive territory.
