Early signs point to strong IPO for Hilton Worldwide

Hilton Worldwide (HLT) is scheduled to price its IPO on December 12 and start trading the next day in what will be one of the larger IPOs of the year.

The company's emergence as a public company again is expected to go very smoothly after the Hilton story was told up and down Wall Street during a successful $13B debt recapitalization in October.

A capital-light plan by Hilton to expand through franchising is also seen as taking some risk off the table.

    Don't buy into IPOs, it may be a good investment, but I doubt the IPO will be.


    I absolutely could be wrong, but I still won't buy it.

    Why would you want to start trading on Friday the 13th. Traders and Investors are known to be a superstitious lot.
