Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey, the world’s leading questionnaire tool.

After staging a bit of a comeback in 2010, the IPO market has gotten off to a strong start this year. So far, there have been 24 U.S. IPOs, raising $8.1 billion, up from 13 offerings that raised $1.9 billion in the first month and half of 2010, according to Renaissance Capital. The strong results are due in part to the IPOs of Nielsen and Kinder Morgan, both of which were PE-backed deals.

There are currently 34 PE-backed IPOs in the pipeline, including Toys “R” US and Freescale. HCA, which is expected to be the biggest PE-backed offering ever, is expected to launch in early March.

This week’s question is a two-parter: Which PE-backed IPO will do the best, and which VC-backed offering will be tops? (Make sure to use the scroll bar on the right to see the entire survey.)
