Zacks Value Investor Highlights: Renaissance IPO ETF and First Trust US IPO ETF

For Immediate Release

Can Value Investors Buy IPOs?
Welcome to Episode #11 of the Value Investor Podcast

Every week, Zacks value stock strategist and the Editor of Zacks Value Investor portfolio service, Tracey Ryniec, talks about all things happening in the value stock universe, including her top stock picks.

This week, Tracey digs into the IPO market. After a really slow market in IPOs, the last week saw a flurry of activity including ELF Beauty , which went public expecting to raise $100 million but instead booked $141 million after it priced above expectations.

Shares of ELF, which makes lower priced cosmetics, finished up 56% on their first day of trading.

But IPOs are usually high growth companies and they don’t come cheap.

Can value investors ever buy into an IPO when it first launches?

You may be surprised by the answer.

Outside of stocks, Tracey also discusses how to play IPOs using ETFs. There are two IPO ETFs, the Renaissance IPO ETF (IPO-Free Report) and the First Trust US IPO ETF (FPX-Free Report) .

Which one does Tracey like and why?

Find out more about value investors diving into IPOs on this week’s podcast.
