    There are literally hundreds of variables that create a stock price, the main one being psychology.

    Do you forget the scores of stocks in the past that have never earned any money (or never had a chance in hell of doing so) go to the sky?

    Face Book has a story that can bring about people who dream about making a killing by buying the stock.
    This is why the stock will swing wildly in the future, with no fundamental reasons at all.

    Sure, reality will some day reflect the stock price, but that is a long way off.
    Didn't you notice how the vast majority of people predicted that the stock would get hit hard when the last lockup period expired? The opposite happened because apparently the large holders held, because they believe (wrongly or rightly) that the stock has a great future.

    Even Mark Zuckerberg has publicly promised to not sell any of his shares for a year.
    Don't you think he has dreams about becoming one of the wealthiest people in the world?
    He is human like you and I, and I'm sure his stature in the financial world is very important to him.

    • Excellent observation. You sound like you have a lot of experience in the Stock Market.
      Only fools think they know all of the answers.
      The Stock market can be a humbling place.

    • I agree, trying to figure out future rev is tough but there is potential if they pull it together. I have read so much about the high P/E which on face value is high but when you compare it to LNKD (699) it is low. I bought this the day before the last lock out and sold half my position in the pre market friday. I will be buying it back if FB gets down around the 23 level. Everyone has been bashing this company based on the latest earnings which is a big mistake (My Opinion) I have been trading for over 25yrs and i have learned that it doesn't matter what i think. As long as the Big Money thinks it's going up i am willing to go along for the ride until something changes my outlook. GL Mike
