Six companies are due to carry out public listings next week in the U.S. as the IPO market continues to recover from its post-Facebook slump. Among those set to debut, Manchester United and Bloomin' Brands (BLMN), the operator of the Outback Steakhouse restaurants, hope to raise $300M each, and hamburger chain CKE $200M.

    I would be shocked if Manchester United does better than FB. Seems like we are going to see more of the same. When will investors get tired of losing money. Instead of the so called ''investing'', they can just send checks to CEO's and owners of companies ... no need to do complicated IPO's that achieve the same.
