    3 ROCK solid reasons why FB is going on a tear...no #$%$ here.

    No #$%$ around here....just facts...no #$%$.
    #1: FB being added to NASD 100 next week.
    #2: Huge user traffic(individual and advertiser) the next 4 weeks...Holiday pics/posts from individuals; huge marketing blitz by advertisers.
    #3: FB rolls out a new feature in Jan.'13: A "Wanted" button....where users can find items they are looking to buy...a cross between Ebay & Craigslist. This alone will be MONSTER! Think viral.
    Now I know why I stopped viewing these message boards.....too many idiots talking #$%$. This will most likely be my last post. These boards are a huge waste of time.

    • You are doing the same thing that you are complaining about. There are multiple parts of the market and on this board there are posters who love FB or hate FB.

      The reason for the recent rise in FB is not fundamental. It has been due to a large amount of institutional buying. You can tell this by the way it rose and the volume involved. It actually rose during a negative fundamental event.

      Now to put any type of value on a stock, you have to have numbers. There are many good reasons for FB to gain in the future but there are also negatives which could bring it down. You took your perceptions and added a twist and after that you put some sort of value on the stock.

      Here is a question. How much is FB worth? Do you know how much they will earn? Will the market value FB the way it is valued now or will that change? I can tell you right now....... No one knows. The current action is caused by very big players who are buying stock. None of this is retail buying and many the buyers are not buying due to fundamental reasons but because this is a stock that they need in their portfolio.

      Also on a growth basis, you need to know what type of future revenue and earnings FB will have to produce to support any future pps.

      If you want reasonable discussions, you have to have make reasonable statements. What you gave in your 3 statements are basically reasons to support your conviction that FB is going to go up. To get reasonable thoughts you have to listen to both sides and if you have a neutral stance on a stock you can watch the market better and make better trades and investments. This is not a football game where you either love or hate a team.

      I am not just picking on you but you have to understand that you are yelling at people you disagree with and you're basically doing the same thing that you complain about regarding others. FB will do what it does and most successful investors/traders are looking at multiple stocks. They treat the stock as a vehicle to invest and they try to invest in what the market tells them instead of what they think.

      Good luck

    • I am a seasoned internet pay per click advertiser. I have 12 years experience in this field, I have used all the major SE and have been paying for Ads on FB and also use it for postings on specials. Internet traffic and sales on the target sites have increased 46% in 6 months time. This stock is a MONSTER the true value is unknown and uncalculatable, it is a unique business and is adding new ideas all the time. There marketing trumps GOOG and Bing to attract new advertisers offering $50 and $75 credits for new users. It works and works best.of all the SE out there. Their mobile capabilities and reach are equivalent to none. THIS IS THE STOCK OF OUR TIME. Remember when you first heard that if you invested $200 in MSFT or AAPL 10- 15 years ago You would have $MILLIONS$ FB is the one you are gonna wish you bought NOW and held. Buy what you can afford add a little from time to time and forget it. Look back 1 year from now FB will be $100 for LOW. Let the shorts and traders #$%$ to help them deal with their decisions or indecesions Last Post from me on this until Next year. Happy holidays to all.

      • One short gave u a thumbs down. LOLOL those poor simple goofs wouldn't know a good deal if it slugged them right in their teeth.....Merry Christmas to all....long or short

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • Then why do the feel the need to purchase Vetti if their mobile capabilities and reach are the equivalent to none? Is it because their current platform is BOTTOM OF THE BARREL GIVEN THE MONEY THAT HAS BEEN INVESTED THUS FAR????????

        I suspect I am late in the game in asking the following question: What assurances can Facebook give that their privacy settings are TRULY PRIVATE SO THAT I CAN STILL CONTROL WHO SEES WHAT WHEN AND HOW I WANT INFORMATION ABOUT MYSELF TO BE PRESENTED without it possibly being seen and read by those who have no business reading said information??? I'm from Missouri, SHOW ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Maybe you young folks don't care about privacy anymore. Us old time fossils still DO!!!!

        Finally, and I still have not seen anyone address this risk, what if the Zuck's marital relationship
        terminates? How could this possibly impact Facebook??

        FACEBOOK STILL REMAINS FAR WORSE THAN A STRONG SELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • I don't know where you get the number $100. This is in a year's time for large cap stock. Even at multiples of 30 at a pps of $100, FB will have to produce income of 8 billion dollars to support that number That number is 2 billion more than projected revenues and 6 times projected income. They will then have to double their number the next year because their multiple will retract to 15. 100 is a long ways off and it is 3 times what FB's 1 year projected target is. FB will not trade at multiples of 840 (6 times todays PE) because of the size of the company.

        I just wanted to bring this little closer to earth. Use your DD to figure out an income and use it to to give you a reasonable value based on your future pps. You need to use numbers though. There is also a problem because much of the future is unknown so the exercise will just be a perceived number.

        I wish you success and hope you do well on your investments and trades so you can have a good holiday.

    • I do not know why you got upset ? I ignored ALL those LOSER whoever talk sheeee or made no sense of talking , I listen , even the opposite side . I accept and change my mind if someone do make good point of it. unfortunately , that not people do on this board ( or say on ANY board ), so , unless you are new in stock market , or anyway , you will get used to it. good luck , BTW , you did make good points.

      Sentiment: Buy
