Since there are so many IPOs expected, it’s best to consider the worst 2017 IPOs by industry:
In the US, the Medicare sector could be among the worst performing sector. President Trump aims to repeal Obamacare, which encouraged more people to acquire medical insurance. At the same time, it restricted insurance companies within states, not allowing them to sell insurance across states. If these conditions are repealed, big insurers may have an advantage over smaller ones. Considering that companies going through an IPO are usually ‘small’, IPOs in this sector are sure to be troublesome.
