    Let us see the real facts

    MSFT earns 10 dollars per share. 22 bil net income. Operating margin 34.8 %.
    FB 2.55 dollars per share, 550 mil net income.

    It is being said and expected that FB will grow 30% per year.
    That means 2014, net income will be 715 mil dollars. EPS: 715 mill / 2.41 bil sahres= 29 cents PE: 131
    next year 2015: net income: 929 mil. EPS: 38 cents PE: 100 ( stock price is 38 dollars, if it goes uip, PE higher)
    2016: net income: 1.2 bil EPS: 49 cents PE=76. ( FB sp is 38 dollars)

    You need to wait ten years maybe even more if you continue calculating and also assuming the stock price does not go up ever, then FB will catch MSFT.

    The only way to justify the opinion that FB will go up, is the fact that it will surpass 30% growth exponentially so then maybe can not even come close. Like 60% growth and FB stock goes down to 25 then maybe.

    That is why they are releasing the news that FB will get into tv ads business and putting out the numbers there, 16 billion. Vow. Where were they ? Why they did not mention this on IPO day at least?

    Again again, people who dont ask question and momento players will jump the wagon.
    I am just telling you where the people driving the train are thinking and calculating.

    It is just heartbreaking and unbelievable how they can deceive everyone. Everyone.
    Sure a simple arithmetics is a lifesaver. If you know it.

    • Let me make it simple. You make profit at buying a home and not at the time selling it.
      here, they are selling you FB shares so high, you need to wait 15 years to break even.
      It is like buying a home at 1 million dollars. But if you sell it now, its current market price is 50,000 dollars and you are asked to wait 20 years may be it will reach to 1 mil dollars . Plain and simple.
      LNKD YELP all the others same.
      Not google, not msft.

      That is why insiders dumping, dumping dumping.
      How can one be soo fool if FB would go up to 50 in December, to think that the insiders would sell it as it is now today?

      Would you sell your house at 380,000 now if you were convinced that it would be 500,000 by december
