NEW YORK (CNNfn) - Shares of Del Monte Foods Co., the foods and juices processor, made their public debut Friday alongside a handful of other initial public offerings, but Wall Street barely blinked an eye.
     The San Francisco-based company's stock was trading at around 15-11/16 on the New York Stock Exchange, up just fractionally from its offering price of around $15 a share.
     Analysts had expected a lukewarm reception for the company, which had postponed its IPO in 1998. This offer was led by Morgan Stanley.
     Analysts said the nature of the business is slow-growing and wouldn't attract the momentum players who have driven recent technology and Internet IPOs to lofty levels.
     Del Monte had 1997 revenue of $1.4 billion.
     Among the other companies that went public Friday are: Delphi Automotive Systems Corp. (DPH), Modern Media Poppe Tyson (MMPT), Pacific Internet (PCNTF), Corinthian Colleges (COCO) and MicroFinancial (MFI).Back to top
