William Hubbard, Benzinga Staff Writer

It's been a busy week, with 12 initial public offerings priced and opened -- including the fifth-largest IPO of 2014.

As the stock market pushed on to new highs, IPO investors continued their recent success, picking up another 10 percent, even with a couple of pain-causing IPOs.


Winners for the week of June 16 were Viper Energy (VNOM), ZS Pharma (ZSPH), Zafgen (ZFGN) and Kite Pharma (KITE). Respectively, these companies enjoyed gains of 28, 55, 25 and 50 percent, based on their priced IPOs.

The fifth largest IPO of 2014, Markit (MRKT), opened Thursday with very notable success; making gains in excess of 10 percent. The financial research firm raised $1.28 billion in its IPO by selling an upsized offering of 53.5 million shares for $24 per share, the middle of its range.

Dragging down IPO gains for the week are Signal Genetics (SGNL) and Parnell Pharmaceuticals (PARN). Both stocks opened just below their offering price and have subsequently dipped by 20 and 25 percent, respectively.

Next week is slated to be another busy week, with 16 IPOs expected to price, including versatile camera-maker GoPro (GPRO).
