    Underwriters are going to show a HUGE loss on their sheet next quarter

    The more they try to postpone the inevitable doom of FB, the more they lose.

    Investors in any shares of the underwriters like GS (Goldman Sachs), MS (Morgan Stanley), JPM (JP Morgan) and the rest of the 40 investors will want to sell their stakes in those companies soon. The more they try to prop this POS ticker up, the more they will have to sell eventually, to the losses of the average investor who has purchase FB.

    FB has TOO MANY shares out there and not sustaining business modelfor growth.

    One point to realize here is that even if insiders and employees hold on to their shares at this price point, they will only lose long term because paper is worth nothing if not in liquid cash. Sales of shares will be made from now on until the end of 2013 when Zuck will sell off his remaining 500 million shares.

    Lower prices are NOT factored into lockup expiry no matter how much the longs may try and make you believe that. If it was the case, you would not see such huge falls from one day to the next each time lockup expires or even long after that.

    Groupon is an excellent example. It fell from $30 to $2 !!!!

    FB is going down to $2 where it belongs.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

      Considering FB has less than $8 billion liquidity in it's coffers, wonder how the employees feel when their company has to file for bankruptcy soon. After all longs are hoping that employees continue to hold their shares, that just means potentially no more liquidity is coming into FB in the short term. How long will it take for $8 billion to be burnt out? Not much considering the way it is being used to spend for acquisitions. Instagram itself was a $1 billion acquisition whose same functionality but with patented filters were created by Twitter under $15 million. Such a huge loss of investment money over nothing.

      On the flip side, when employees sell over 75% of their stake, the shares will definitely fall much further.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Many investors think GS and JPM are so smart but they are also stupid. They get caught up trying to control the markets and get blistered in the end. Real investors with big money don't like GS. They always put their nose in where it doesn't belong, I love seeing them get crushed!!

        ditto!

        Market manipulation may be one of the worst main reasons for why we are in this mess currently. If the market was allowed to go its way, the real sentiment of a majority whole against a useless ticker may become known. Unfortunately market manipulators use investor money to control the market. On either side it is the investor that runs a loss, while the manipulator will always make money on their fees and cuts.

        Sentiment: Strong Sell

        Underwriters can spend however much they want. This POS ticker will continue to go down down down to the low single digit until bankruptcy over the next year.

        DOES ANYONE ON THIS FORUM LIKE CLICKING ON ADS? THERE IS A PROGRESSIVE AD ON THE RIGHT OF MY YAHOO MESSAGE PAGE RIGHT NOW. HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I CLICKED ON A YAHOO AD IN THE LAST 1 YEAR??? HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU?

        ZERO, NADA, ZILCH, SQUAT, 000000!

        But suddenly investors expect people to love clicking on ads when they do not do it themselves? FB is expecting each of its users to click on its ads many 100s of times to show a 104 BILLION worth (what a scam) . Hah , so much for a business model.

        Our nearest comparison, Google, had over 50 products other than search from which they make money. People can check it out for themselves by going to their site, clicking on About Google , and then looking at their products. Companies use those products a lot and pay Google for it. Their Search and ads is only a portion of their total revenue. And yet we have clicked on Google ads so many times before because we go to Google to search for a certain product (without logging in). Why would a bald person for instance log into FB to run a search and know they just tracked his search for his friends and advertisement companies to spam him with bald products? And no I am not bald, and I do not care if I was, but this is an example for you to think over.

        Sentiment: Strong Sell
