I think he gave tehm some money after the IPO or something. I dunno, I didn't see tthe movie. But I'm sure the Zuckster didn't just steal it. He looks too dorky to do that.
The idea was for some to short and distort the stock so they can steal money from investor's accounts.
It is called leveraging a free site with ads dollars. This is also all ex-ante analysis here, the company has refocused its attention on generating revenues from ads and acquisitions. Most of the past data is useless in determining the future outcome of this company except for the user numbers and 12 months of financial data because the company is transitioning from a free service to a revenue generating entity. These numbers are also trended up.
The recent negative stories in the press are meaningless to future projections of this company. The IPO is in the past, FB already beat out MySpace, the user base increased (contrary to false and misleading negative reports), ads from mobile devises increased and the content is increasing overtime. The company has also hired top quality people.
Marketers are not going to past up the opportunity to advertise to 1.1 billion people. Every person in sales knows that this data list alone is worth big BIG MONEY. This is a very different company from 1 year ago.
I have confidence that someday, maybe even a coupla years from now, that the PE ratio will eventually go down to about 100. I'm waiting for it.
Fundamentals are getting stronger, the stock is relatively very, very cheap. Investors are either holding or can't afford to buy into our monster stocks. I think people have FB in their sights daily and are not going to miss the ride for anything. And it's coming. The amazing gains of indexes may be the catalyst since FB is still within reach having been out only a year.
I don't know if you have worked or started a start-up company, but some contracts are written on piece of junks and verbal agreements can be made on sidewalks. Facebook gave a lot of stocks to an artist for a mural, How much stocks do you think Mark has given out in the early stage of Facebook when the company has no value and he has billion of shares? Mark had made a lot of promises and now he is refusing to honor them.
The idea is to bring FB to $10 OR LESS for the next pump and dump....most people don't spend a penny on this #$%$...they just post pictures...dumb advertisers will be scammed along with those that bought at the top...
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Some people just need the easy subjects. To project outcomes of this company is not easy. This is what is confusing some people. they are looking at unimportant ex-post information. The IPO information is useless to investors at this point. The only things that matter are ex-ante or future revenues and earnings potential.
Facebook IPO buyers you have been scamed.. Wallstreet is lighting cigars. You are the nieve, not rich, small invester. On the bight site maybe you have leared a lession. Wall Street can only make money when others loose money.
msg board to warn idiots and to make fun of the fools that bought in on this overpriced and overhyped so called stock. Thought I would come back again to make fun of the fools again... HA!
The revenue trend is positive for FB. Some people will always make an issue out mini downturns in the cycles because they are trying to distort the data. Seasonal effects, for example, are common when looking at data points over time but some will make an issue about these points even when the over all long-term trend is positive. So far, most of the company data is trending up. Desktop data may be a little flat due to more people using mobile devises to access their information but FB has done a good job transitioning to mobile platforms. This should have little impact on future models for growth in revenues. Smart phones and tables usage are also going up, so marketers will continue to target these users with an increase in advertising dollars future.
Projections also have errors small even when the with positive trends but companies can often correct them over time if the deviations are not too large form the actual data. Most FB app errors can be corrected with updates. It was really better that they caught these errors before they became too large to deal with. Most consumers will chase the new updates or wait for programs to get better. The key message from the company is its focus on providing advertising to open economies ( 1.1 billion and counting).Smart companies will be better working with, not against them.... understand or not.
with a name like masterbates this boy has no brains. probably keeps a picture of his right hand in his wallet where most men carry a picture of their wife. good luck to you loser.......
You prefer dogs, misterbates? Facebook has been around a decade. If it were going to disappear, hello-o, it would have done it. So buy a few shares and be happy.
Facebook has no future. It's not like Apple or Microsoft with product for sale. It's a free website trying to monetize via advertising. At least Google had the game plan from day 1 to monetize search. Good luck trying to make profit off some dorks cat pictures.
Exactly. "High teens" were the one's who made Facebook what it was in the first place. Now it's mostly their parents and grandparents. Facebook is rapidly becoming the geriatric social network. I've fallen and can't get up.
Monetize? That was never part of the plan anyway. The plan was to be the largest social network. Don'[t look now, but there's no breakout on the horizon, it's all downhill from here.
