Equity Capital Markets Overview
Equity Market Commentary
•
The S&P 500, Dow Jones and Nasdaq all fell in
March, while the Russell 2000 was the only
major index to end the month in positive
territory
-
•
Healthcare was the sole S&P sector to
move higher, ending the month up 0.8%,
while materials was the biggest laggard,
falling 5.0%
During Q1, the Dow Jones recorded the most
daily swings of 1% or more since the fourth
quarter of 2011; the increase in volatility
occurred despite below-average volume for the
quarter

IPO Market Commentary
•
•
•
The IPO market was quiet, with 8 IPOs pricing
in March, raising $1.5 billion; this brings the Q1
total to 30 IPOs raising $5.6 billion, compared
to 68 IPOs raising $12.1 billion in Q1 2014
Demand for IPOs during Q1 was strong, with
30% pricing above their filing range, compared
to 18% during Q1 2014
Given the backdrop of elevated volatility,
aftermarket performance in Q1 has pulled back,
with average offer to 1-day and offer to 30-day
at 12.2% and 18.5% respectively, compared to
19.4% and 33.4% during the same 2014 period
