Facebook IPO  Reply with quote  

Who has bought the Facebook shares, they seem very promising although the $35 per share is putting many people off.

Actually, the underwriters changed the price to $38. And that's about where it closed the first day (up 23 cents), despite expectations it would take off. One analyst predicted over $50. The talking heads tried to spin it by saying "it shows it was priced right".

Baloney.

It goes to show not everybody is stupid enough to buy into hot air. This is a company that makes nothing, adds no value, has no new technology, and whose revenues come mostly from a source for which there's abundant competition. It has a PE of 90, and the rest of its metrics are either sick or disgusting, with the except of debt. Virtually no debt. Well, is that a surprise? What do they have to finance?

My prediction is that in six months this will be a $20 stock.

I agree with coaster. The price seems inflated and very over valued.

There was more news today where some analysts are saying Facebook was way over valued and the price per share will drop even further.

I know this is not directly a fiscal based comment, but I've had the sense that Facebook was trending down for some time. Numerous "friends" have removed themselves over time and I have considered doing the same.

It's at 31.55 right now.. I never buy single stock anyway, so it's not for me.

I read one analyst's opinion that said pretty much the same thing.

I've never been on FB; I intend to never be on FB; and I resent the agreements they've made with other content providers that you have to have a FB account to gain access to their content (Spotify, for one example).

No doubt Zuckerburg is a brilliant individual and recognized the best possible time to make a bundle on his ownership, and I think that's how it's going to go down historically.

It will be fun to watch. Kind of wished I had grabbed some of those $16 Google shares. 44% of people say they will never click on a FB advert. GM pulled out of advertising there. Thinking of doing some FB adverts but haven't taken the plunge yet.

I have found some grade school friends on FB so I'm glad I joined for the free del taco taco.

An initial public offering (IPO) is often explored once a company hits the $100 million mark. Clearly, Facebook has long surpassed that ceiling, as the company is expected to declare a $4 billion dollar revenue once it goes public. This makes Facebook one of the biggest, if not the biggest, social networking site to be traded publicly.

There was huge hype regarding Facebook and it all proved to be wrong to the general investors. So all of the hype was false actually and Facebook stock was overpriced at the initial stage with huge hype which was not appropriate.

Facebook is not Google. It has a very unattractive advertising platform for businesses. I don't think they will be able to drive sustainable revenue through their ad platform. They might get a boost one day if and when they start charging for membership.
