Greenshoe) nach der Erst- tierung im Prim~irmarkt bzw. die Kurspflege einzubeziehen und dabei auch die M6glichkeit von IPO-Zyklen zu be~cksichtigen. Es mangelt an einem eher ganzheitlichen Untersuchungsansatz, der sowohl traditionelle Variable der IPO-Literatur, wie z.B. das adjust oder die eines Untemehmens, - achtet, als auch die Faktoren des Handels im Sekundgrmarkt, insbes, die Bedeutung des Investor Sentiment, und die Wechselwirkung von Marktbewermng (Underpricing) und Emissionst~itigkeit (Zyklen?) berficksichtigt. Neue bzw. erstmalige Erkenntnisse in diesem mr Wissenschaft und Praxis gleich- mal3en wesentlichen Bereich wfirden fiber den deutschen Markt hinaus Bedeutung haben: Mehr als nur ein Anlass mr eine Forschungsarbeit im variety einer Dissertation.
