After another modest decline on Friday, shares of Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) closed the week at $25.87, slightly below its headline IPO price back in November 2013. While Twitter shareholders find themselves back at square one after a 27.9 percent decline in 2015, Benzinga checked up to see how the five biggest IPOs of 2014 are playing out.

5. Virgin America Inc (NASDAQ: VA)

Airline stocks were having a rough go of it in recent weeks even prior to the market collapse this week. However, despite a 23.4 percent decline so far in 2015, Virgin America is still trading 43.8 percent higher than its $23 IPO price.

4. GoPro Inc (NASDAQ: GPRO)

GoPro’s 2015 decline has nearly mirrored Virgin America’s decline, as shares of the camera maker are down 23.5 percent year-to-date. However, overall, GoPro IPO investors are still looking at more than 100 percent returns from the company’s October, 2014 IPO price of $24 per share.

3. King Digital (NASDAQ: KING)

Yikes. The maker of Candy Crush Saga raised half a billion dollars from its 2014 IPO, and it’s been bad news for the stock ever since its opening trade at $22.50. At this point, IPO investors are down 42.2 percent.

2. LendingClub Corp (NYSE: LC)

The peer-to-peer lending marketplace raised $870 million from its 2014 IPO, which priced shares at $15. After peaking at $29.29 in the weeks following its IPO, the stock made a complete 180. Buyers can now buy LendingClub at a 19.0 percent discount to its IPO price.

1. Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE: BABA)

The $22 billion that Alibaba raised from its much-hyped IPO in September of last year made it the largest IPO in history. If you regretted not getting in on the groung floor with Alibaba, you’re in luck!

Alibaba joins Twitter this week in offering buyers a second chance to buy at the IPO price. After a 3.0 percent decline on Friday, Alibaba closed the week at $68.18, only 18 cents above its 2014 IPO price of $68.
