Conditions ripe for huge IPO market in 2015: Pro

IPO Pro: 2015 pipeline very full

Is 2015 shaping up to be a huge year for the initial public offering market? Former MarketWatch and Rocket Fuel Chief Financial Officer Peter Bardwick thinks so.

Bardwick was finance chief of those companies the day they went public. He witnessed valuations double in just one day of trading, twice.

In an interview Wednesday, Bardwick pointed out that in 2015 he sees growth in many technology and business-to-business companies.

"Look for names like Uber, Airbnb, Snapchat and Dropbox to go public next year," he said.

Innovative technology is key, said Bardwick. "There are some really good companies out there with very disruptive business models," he said on CNBC's "Fast Money: Halftime Report. "

The current U.S. economic conditions, low interest rates and solid jobs market create a good market for IPOs, according to Bardwick.

"Investing in IPOs is always risky but not as much as 1999. Companies going public are bigger today and as a result are more likely to survive than they did in the class of 1999," he said.

"Don't go too early," he said. "Just because the markets are good doesn't mean you should go public."
