It will take few treatments to get rid of those fleas. The first treatment starts pretty soon after the paltry earnings.
FB has to spend a lot to go mobile. The impact of their spending won't show anything positive for a while.
You drop 2 billion shares on the market and voila.
Not one high tech IPO with that kind of low revenue has seen so many shares right at the beginning of their existence as a public company.
In a slowing global economy with more competitors and shrinking total ads revenue, it can't bode well for FB.
You find that kind of number with companies existing for years, that went on many splits or many secondary offerings.
AAPL after 30 years has only 990M shares, no split.
CSCO after 30 years has 5Bn shares after many splits.
INTC after 30 years has 5BN shares after many splits.
For an IPO, Facebook with 2Bn shares will find very difficult to show earnings per share that look good for shareholders.
Poor guy, always having to promote the same thing with a different color for years and years.

It's now in the ditch and it can't get out without any wheels.
If you think that Heins is the Steve Jobs of the Blackberry you'll continue to be disappointed.
Six months to wait for the 10, come on, how many new smartphones will be out then by competitors!
“My expectation is that in some countries we will be launching in January,” Frank Boulben, RIM’s new chief marketing officer, said in an interview before the meeting.
Countries: Nauru, Tuvalu. Afterward, Pitcairn and Bishop Rock.
Nothing can stop the process.
The Blackberry will be placed next to the Commodore 64, as once a great and popular product that became absolete due to the absence of real creative minds in the company.
Can't you see that the book value goes down every single quarter, and the market is just predicting that it will go down the drain even more.
RIMM, the Canadian NOKIA.
The oversized buttons is why RIMM will take several more months to manufacture them. It takes lot of raw material. Luckily, commodity prices are down in the last few months, so they will offer the brand new slowphone for $8 instead.
I am pre-ordering few of them, for me and my friends in the nursing home.
With more and more old customers buying from RIMM, the company has decided to be bold, and aiming at senior citizens with its next phone. They can't call it smartphone, more like slowphone. With each phone that a customer will buy they will send a second one for free, and a magnifying glass, also for free. All this for $15.
