    Japan Post jumps on open in 2015's biggest IPO

    The largest initial public offering in the world this year got off to a painfully slow start, with more than 30 minutes passing before shares in Japan Post companies changed hands on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Kaori Enjoji writes, a decade in the making, three entities went public today: the postal arm, the banking division and the insurance division of Japan Post. But trade remained bid-only for some time amid heavy orders. The postal business, Japan Post Holding, eventually opened up 15.5% at JPY 1,617, against an IPO price of JPY 1,400 per share. Japan Post Bank also jumped more than 15% to JPY 1,652, from an IPO price of JPY 1,450. Each business floated just 11% of its stock.

    Guotai Junan shares surge 44% in stockmarket debut

    Guotai Junan Securities, China’s largest brokerage by revenue, surged 44% on its first day of trading in Shanghai after it completed the nation’s biggest domestic initial share sale since 2010. The stock was suspended after it jumped by the exchange’s daily limit to 28.38 yuan. Guotai Junan, based in Shanghai, raised 30 billion yuan ($4.8 billion) after selling shares at 19.71 yuan apiece. “The strong performance is a demonstration of investors’ confidence in Guotai Junan’s business and its future prospects,” said Chen Xingyu, a Shanghai-based analyst at Phillip Securities Research. “However, as the broader market is relatively weak at the moment, its share price will likely come under pressure. We might see a correction soon.”

    Lock-up period for Alibaba's early backers ends

    The pressure on Alibaba’s US shares could mount this week, as many of the Chinese company’s earliest investors get a chance to sell shares for the first time, writes Bloomberg. Today (Wednesday) marks the end of the lock-up period for about 14% of the company’s publicly traded stock. While there’s no guarantee that they will unload the shares now, Alibaba’s investors have seen the stock slump about 19% this year on bad news. But Alibaba still fetches a premium to other internet companies. While it is trading at 17 times projected sales for 2015, Tencent Holdings trades closer to 10 times, and Ebay is at 3.8 times estimated revenue for this year.

    Berger: Alibaba: what now?

    Serge Berger
    Serge Berger, a veteran of many IPOs, assesses the performance of Alibaba shares which went on sale in the world's largest IPO last Friday. The stock rose to open almost forty percent above the original USD 68.00 price set before the NYSE opening bell, but now appears to have established a crude range between a high of USD 99.70 and a low of USD 89.95.
