FEWER PROCEEDS: The five companies that began trading Thursday raised less money than they had hoped in their initial public offerings of stock after recent market volatility.
STOCKS RISE: But four of the five companies logged first-day trading gains as the broader market rose. HD Supply, an Atlanta-based industrial distributor, raised $957.6 million in its IPO. That's the fifth-largest deal of the year.
COMING UP: More companies expect to tap the market. Burlington Holdings Inc., owner of the Burlington Coat Factory store chain, said it was planning a $175 million IPO.
