Right now, the company isn't showing any innovation or major expansion. That's going to hurt long-term growth. Just being a social network isn't gonna cut it.

The again, LinkedIn is currently @ $109 and IPO'd for $45

I plan to jump on the IPO for a quick flip. I'm hoping for something like 20-30% jump in the first few days.

LinkedIn IPO'd at $83 ....



But anyway, I think there's so much hype around Facebook and its IPO that it will have a huge pop on the first day. But like any other social network/fad it will die sooner or later.

Because it's priced so cheap it'll probably have a 50% gain in the first day and continue higher for a while. It's supposed to be pricing around $30.

Definitely not a long term hold IMO, short term it's cool for a flip though. And I won't be buying it. Waiting for options which should be out a few days after the IPO.

That was the pricing.... it never traded at $45. It opened at $83.




Look at the chart for LNKD. All time low is $55.98.

You don't go long on a company whose primary source of income is derived from it's amount of Internet traffic, couple that with Facebook being nothing more than a fad, and IMHO are already losing people to both Twitter and Instagram is a recipe for disaster for would b Lon term investors, BUT FB is powered by the oh so beautiful hype machine and should make for a promising flip. I wouldn't go long with FB until I see them post profits, and hear how they plan to grow.

Facebook already bought Instagram so need to worry about them. Twitter, eh... they're really not the same at all IMO. Even though I like Twitter more, it doesn't have the same feel as Facebook if that makes sense


I'd be more worried about Google+ taking market share from Facebook. Problem I have with them is that they're changing too much, they're acting like Myspace did. There's a ton of bs spam on FB now and it's turning to sh*t.

FB is still the 2nd largest site in the world after Google. Google+ is their main competitor now IMO.

One more thing, in their S1 filing Zynga was contributing about 12% to Facebook's revenue. But Zynga is not doing as good as everyone thought, they're making less and less which affects FB's revenue too.

plenty of sites but I use TradeKing. Each transaction (buy/sell) is $5. For basic trading, that's the only fee. Many are predicting 75-90 a share after the market opens.

I've been following your posts and you've been giving dope advice

I've been looking at Google and Apple's stock from the early days and the one thing that has kept those two stocks on top is revenue, there's so much smoke and mirrors with Facebook's valuation, I'm not sure where they're going to get the revenue to get on the level of Google or Apple. Their foray into the branded mobile phone market was a complete failure. The Facebook App store seems like a good idea but it's not revolutionary. Facebook's only real a.sset is the large amount of cash they're sitting on that will allow them to continue to make acquisitions.

lol not with a credit card. it's basically like a bank, in fact most of the major ones are banks like etrade, TDA, etc.

It's free to open an account, you just have to transfer money from your bank account. Do you have a Paypal account? It works like that. Once you create your brokerage account you link it to your bank account and they make 2 small deposits to your account that you have to verify. Then you transfer money from your bank account to your brokerage through ACH (takes about 3-4 days), wire transfer (instant), check, etc. They have step by step instructions on their site.

Also, one thing for those who are just getting in for the flip. If you're not familiar with stocks then be careful.

There is a ton of hype around the stock, so yes it may jump the first day. But like I said earlier, it's pricing between $28 - $35 a share. That doesn't mean you will be able to buy it there. I'm guessing the stock will open around $50 at least.

Facebook already has a lot of share holders from the secondary private market. That's the main problem with this IPO. Everyone who bought in the secondary market may dump their shares on the IPO and run....

Just a heads up, be careful if you touch this.
