Most Tech IPOs This Year Were Total Busts

Zynga finally went public on Friday and started trading at $11 per share — but that euphoria wore off and it quickly fell below its IPO price of $10.It’s the latest in a long string of tech companies that have gone public this year and haven’t done so well.

By year’s end, seven of the 16 tech companies that went public are actually outperforming their IPOs. One of them, Bankrate, doesn’t really count because it was taken private and then re-IPO’d this year.

Was 2011 a bust for IPOs? You can draw your own conclusions. But to help out, we’ve assembled a list of the top tech IPOs this year, and where they are now:
