Well, it could be worse. The IPOs that debuted the first week of May averaged a 2.7% return. Supernus Pharmaceuticals led the returns at 7.4%. The health care company is highlighted for its work in improving drug formulas for epilepsy and ADHD.

Amazingly, Pacific Coast Oil Trust, ended its debut with a 0% change. Given that trading volume was counted at 10,077,356 this raises some eyebrows. Sure, it peaked for a moment around 11am at $20.2, but apparently the 2 cents gain wasn't meant to last. Good news for the firm however, it appears to be trading up in after hours.
