Citizen Financial (CFG), the U.S. retail bank unit of Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), became the year's second largest IPO behind Alibaba (BABA) after 140M shares began trading on the NYSE this morning. The stock ended it first day up $1.58, or 7.35%, at $23.08, which was far cry from the advance seen by another of the day's new stock debuts. CyberArk (CYBR) priced 5.36M shares at $16.00, opened for trade at $25.00 and ended the day at $29.94, making for a rise of over 87% from its IPO pricing.

Civitas, which was private, had been scheduled to come public via an IPO that was expected to happen later this week prior to the deal announcement.
