Overview

What Is IPOFN?

IPOFN is known for the accuracy of its IPOFN Rankings on IPOs and Secondary offerings, but is equally proud of the comprehensive IPO research package covering pending deals, after-market coverage, trading ideas and its historical database.

IPOFN provides all the information necessary to participate in the IPO and secondary markets in a series of crisp, concise FAX reports. If you are a participant in these deals, you need to know where each deal is expected to open, which deals are going to be hot, and where to go to get in on the deals - the IPOFN proprietary package is the only source you will need.

What Are the IPOFN Rankings?

IPOFN Rankings tell you which deals are hot and which are not. Over the last six years, IPOFN has achieved high accuracy on its IPO rankings and strong accuracy on its secondary rankings.

Each deal receives a ranking indicating where the deal will trade: 7 possible ranks for secondaries and 17 ranks for IPOs. The IPO ranking correctly predicts where the first bid-side trade will hit the tape. The secondary ranking tells you where the stock will trade on the bid-side during its first 15 minutes of trading.

The IPOFN Rankings are simple to use, however, the analytics behind the rankings are complex. The system utilizes 250 fundamental data items on each company to formulate its ranking.

Who Is Behind IPOFN?

IPOFN has been analyzing the IPO markets and publishing the IPOFN service for 6 years. He is a frequent commentator on CNBC and has appeared on CNN and the Nightly Business Report. Mr. Menlow is known as a source for The Wall Street Journal, Investors Business Daily and all of the financial publications commenting on the IPO market.
