I am 61 and got involved in the stock market when I was 10. I would like to say that FB has the potential to change your life if you buy and hold. Their technology, potential growth and ability to employee the smartest kids in the world, will will drive this stock way beyond any expectations.
I would also like to ad that the parabolic move from 25 to 40 isn't over. Facebook will serge higher than anyone's wildest dreams. Anyone with a 20 year horizon, could retire by just buying 100 shares today. This is not a joke, it real.
of course it will be life changing, but few today invest, they gamble, or day trade, no guts. the same idiots think they know the mind of zuck and sandberg steering this ship, and don't have an iota how this juggernaut is going to overtaking competitors and people they aren't even in competition with, yet. People will be hanging themselves in 5 years for not just buying 100 shares now, idiots.
I am thinking about adding to my FB position. I work for a fortune 500 company and yesterday while sitting in the break room I realized, again, how big FB could grow. There were conversations here and there, with most singles, staring at their handhelds. I see it everywhere. The world is changing and FB is the leader.
