Poor IPO-Stock Performance Weighs Further on New-Issue Market

Recently public companies are among the worst performers in this year’s stock-market rout, contributing to a deep freeze in the IPO market that shows few signs of thawing.

Roughly 87% of companies that went public in the U.S. last year are trading below their offering prices, down more than 49% on average as of Friday’s close, according to Dealogic. By rough comparison, the S&P 500 is down 23% this year, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite has fallen 31%.
