STILL APPETITE FOR MORE!


The best stock market listings in 2018


With another 76 IPOs already listed in 2018, it appears the IPO boom is continuing in Stockholm.


It may not look like a record year like 2017, but with companies from Denmark, Norway, and the United Kingdom increasingly considering going public in Sweden, it seems there is a never-ending appetite for new companies to IPO in the Swedish capital Stockholm.

In 2018 about one-third of the newly listed companies on the Swedish marketplaces have generally done well. Smoltek did the best with an increase of 232 percent.

Of last year's companies floating, 32 percent have rising stock prices, according to the news agency Direkt. The best among newcomers has been the nanotechnology company Smoltek, the color technology company I-Tech, the wound care company S2 Medical and the hydrogen company Metacon with increases of over 100 percent each.

Below is a summary of how the 2018 new float's have done. The compilation refers to companies that were introduced on Nasdaq First North, NGM Nordic MTF and Spotlight Market in Stockholm. The price trend has been measured from the introductory offer until the 2018 last trading day.
