Arm Holdings, a chip designer company, made a strong entrance on the stock market this Thursday, with its shares closing at $63.59. This represents a 24.7% gain from its listing price of $51 per share. The firm was previously purchased by SoftBank (TYO: 9984 ) in 2016 for $32 billion, under the ticker ARMH. This successful IPO is the fifth in just a month, following a period of stagnation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, rising banking costs, and recent IPOs' lack of significant traction on the stock market.

The small-cap Russell 2000 outperformed all others with a 1.4% increase. This rally brings us close to one-month highs, a milestone that has been elusive since difficult trading conditions were experienced in August and early September.
