Only two companies appear daring enough to attempt initial public offerings this week as investors shy away from risky investments and buzz-worthy companies wait for the volatile market cloud to pass.

Two companies expected this week, Welsh Property Trust and Nobao Renewable Energy Holdings Ltd., will likely get a cold reception from investors, according to analysts who track the IPO market.
