IPOs in 2014

The Synchrony IPO will take place on Thursday, and it’s expected to raise approximately $3.1 billion. That would easily make it the largest IPO of 2014 so far, outpacing the $2.6 billion raised by Ally Financial Inc. (NYSE: ALLY)from April.

And while Synchrony Financial (NYSE: SYF) will be the biggest IPO to watch this week, it’s just one of 22 companies going public as July wraps up.

According to the Financial Times, this week’s 22 IPOs make this the busiest week for IPOs since August 2000. That total may change however, as it’s not uncommon for companies to delay IPOs the week they’re supposed to begin trading. It’s possible some of these deals will be pushed back.

Here’s what investors need to know about each of this week’s upcoming IPOs.
