Groupon is finally among more than a dozen tech darlings that have made their trading debuts.But it all hasn’t been pretty. Among the most hotly-anticipated tech IPOs, only two are performing well. Most fresh IPO stocks are trading well above their IPO price, but they haven’t reached the prices they held when they made their trading debut.

Groupon has finally gone public and is now trading at around $28 — 41 per cent higher than its IPO price of $20.

Next on deck is social gaming company Zynga, which filed to go public in July and is looking to raise up to $1 billion. Zynga is one of the most profitable companies to file to go public this year.

Will Groupon be among the small group that’s kicking arse? We’ll find out in a few months. Until then, here’s a list of some of the biggest tech IPOs this year so far:
