It's been a busy week, with 12 initial public offerings priced and opened -- including the fifth-largest IPO of 2014.

As the stock market pushed on to new highs, IPO investors continued their recent success, picking up another 10 percent, even with a couple of pain-causing IPOs.

Winners for the week of June 16 were Viper Energy (NASDAQ: VNOM), ZS Pharma (NASDAQ: ZSPH), Zafgen (NASDAQ: ZFGN) and Kite Pharma (NASDAQ: KITE). Respectively, these companies enjoyed gains of 28, 55, 25 and 50 percent, based on their priced IPOs.

The fifth largest IPO of 2014, Markit (NASDAQ: MRKT), opened Thursday with very notable success; making gains in excess of 10 percent. The financial research firm raised $1.28 billion in its IPO by selling an upsized offering of 53.5 million shares for $24 per share, the middle of its range.
