Investor Beat: IPO Bonanza

The New York Times has reported that the first three months of 2014 saw more companies go public than in any quarter since 2000. While some recent IPOs such as King Digital got crushed after their public offering, others such as Coupons.com saw a big pop after going public, indicating it may have left some money on the table.

On Wednesday's Investor Beat, host Alison Southwick and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Eric Bleeker look at the performance of some of the recent IPOs making headlines, and look ahead to the most anticipated IPOs of the year, including Weibo, considered the Twitter of China, and Alibaba, China's massive e-commerce giant.

Then, Jason and Eric look at four stocks making moves on the market today. Shares of Yahoo! were up after the company announced a small beat in its earnings report, though perhaps the largest driver for Yahoo! today was its 24% stake in Alibaba. Intel was also up, despite a relatively unimpressive first quarter that saw quarterly revenue down by 1% year over year, and down 8% sequentially. SodaStream announced that it was in talks to sell up to 16% of its company to an unknown buyer. And shares of King Digital rose after announcing a partnership with Chinese tech company Tencent.

And finally, Eric and Jason each pick one stock they'll be watching closely in the week ahead. Jason points to Xoom, which he calls a money transfer business for the 21st century. He considers this a capital-light business with a focus on technology that could be set to make a lot of money as it continues to add users to its app and ecosystem, so he'll be watching closely when the company reports earnings next week. Meanwhile, Eric will have an eye on search giant Google, which he reminds investors still accounts for one-third of all digital ad spending. He tells investors why enhanced campaigns are the buzzwords he'll be listening for when the company reports earnings after market close tonight.
