ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the slow down of the retail security market of the United States. Labor Day is over, but the new issue market is still on vacation. And with Google Inc.'s long-awaited initial public offering having fizzled, bankers expect the IPO market will remain sluggish For the foreseeable future. Though roughly hail a dozen issuers have launched road shows since the vacation break, with hopes of making it to market in late September, bankers say everyone is hoping someone else will be the first to test the market and gauge investor sentiment. That's because in the runup to the holiday, investor sentiment was so poor that even the hype surrounding Google's offering couldn't prevent the deal from being priced below its initial target range.
