The package, wrapped with brown paper and a white ribbon, contained a wooden block, 4 inches long and wide and 1.75 inches thick, covered with a printed Instagram shot and a slot in the back so it can be hung on the wall. The included note invited the press to "share a moment with Kevin Systrom and the Instagram team." The event will kick off at 10 a.m. on December 12 in Midtown Manhattan.
Not to mention addition to S&P500.
Roll on, Facebook
There are thousands of such contests and giveaways Most of them require you to give a Facebook like FB's earnings this quarter will be enormous - maybe 32 cents.
Coca Cola has 76 million likes on FB while Pepsi has 29 million as does McDonalds Even BMW has 14.7 million and NBA has 18.5 million. These numbers are insane
Do something for your shareholders for once
Who are the idiots selling FB today?
Buy cheap now
Google (GOOG), now the market’s third-most-valuable company, joined the S&P 18 months after its August 2004 IPO. Superimposing that timeline on Facebook means it will get beamed up by mid-month. It has already satisfied the prerequisites of market cap, consistency of profitability, trading for at least six months after its debut, and having enough of its shares available to the public. Amazon (AMZN), EBay (EBAY), Yahoo (YHOO), Priceline (PCLN), and even Expedia (EXPE) are already members.
Rao reckons Twitter is worth $21 a share, or about $11 billion, based on fundamentals such as future revenue and earnings. However, he said there is more at play in hot IPOs such as Twitter's.
"There's a supply and demand issue. People have to get involved and they will rush in to try to get shares, which drives up the price initially," Rao said. "There will be a pop on Thursday probably."
Twitter shares are expected to jump higher than $40 by the end of the first day of trading, according to IG, a firm that lets investors bet on the performance of IPOs ahead of time.
FB is worth 7 or 8 times more than TWTR. So TWTR goes to $25 billion valuation, FB goes to $150 billion valuation or $60 a share. That could easily happen in a week
Boards are usually wrong Everyone was convinced FB was going to 60 after earnings.
Now everyone thinks FB is going down even as many analysts have raised targets.
Avoid the insanity pf boards.
