Microcap IPO flow picked up last week after a traditional slowdown around Independence Day.
The IPO flow continues this week with four companies on the calendar.
United States inflation is at the lowest rate in over two years and slowed by 3% last month, so investors may not see more tinkering by the fed in the months ahead.
Many companies report their second-quarter earnings this week. Investors will also be closely watching what companies forecast for their financial performance to weigh the state of the economy.
Upcoming microcap IPOs include a theme park souvenir designer and developer in the U.S., a warranty marketing company in Japan, and two platform-based tech companies, one stateside and the other in Australia.
