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 (UNKNOWN:KING.DL) got crushed after their public offering, others such as (UNKNOWN:COUP.DL) saw a big pop after going public, indicating it may have left some money on the table.
