FB should easily top $1000 in less than 5 years...
A little bit about the FB split.
The split is really a stock dividend but is very much like a split.
The split is not being done for share holders. It is being done to dilute the voting power of most shareholders.
After the split there will be roughly 9 billion shares.
Share holders will get 2 shares non voting for every one voting share they have. They will in essence have their votes diluted by 2/3.
There is a lawsuit regarding the split because some share holders say that the split takes something away from them in voting shares. GOOG settled a similar lawsuit before they split their stock.
There is a difference in price between Googles 2 classes of shares. It is currently a little over 2%. FB will have twice as many shares created so due to demand the differential could be more.
Many high profile splits like GOOG and NFLX to name a few declined a year after the split.
I personally don't think the split will be bad but I don't see it doing too much for the stock. The split was not engineered to create shareholder value. It was created to give MZ more voting power. FB is doing fine and should continue to do fine split or no split.
I have to wonder if FB is going to be the dominate advertising venue for the next 50 years like network television was in the 1950's?
Would $10k be a good investment in this Company?
I have 500 shares , cost avg. 56.40 . Im fairly new and don't understand selling short or at this point selling this stock at all. I'm all in and staying right to the top. Facebook= the internet=Facebook . Simply put
I've unloaded yesterday and will be looking to buy again after earnings. But, do you guys think is good idea to buy small amount and sell it off the day before report? Just to pull small profit within couple of days
im telling you once July26th comes this will shoot up to $178 so get in now before its too late !!
To Alex: the split will get more investors who shy away from stocks priced over $70. More investors will drive our stocks even higher

I paid $62 for my first lot of 500 shares a little over 3 years ago now those same shares are worth a $100 a share more then what I paid I expected great things but this stock has far exceeded my expectations congrats to all longs old and new let's keep this going $200 by years end!
Let's hold on.. predicting a killer earnings.. for whats it worth, typically FB does the big run up before earnings, reports a killing and doesn't go up much, and between each earnings report goes up. hopefully this time we get a big breakout after a good report. FB is a monter!!
Ah, my retirement looking better every day.
In the last 6 years anytime I buy FB no matter what price I am buying at, it always only goes up. I am glad to be onboarded on to this earnings train and do not intend to get off anytime. Been buying at all pric s starting from $52 and my last buy is at $161.1 yesterday
I first bought fb the morning it came out public at 42! 1000 shares and it fell all the way down to 15.. i held on to it for almost 3 years and sold it at 55.. bought it back at 70 and sold it at 90. Bought it again at 95 and now I am keeping it! It is going to be my retirement right there!
History will repeat itself. Between now and ER next Wednesday, there will be a new high set. Good luck to longs!
We may see 165 today
Facebook Upgraded to $185 by Needham. "
"Our channel checks indicate more robust advertising revenue growth than we previously projected owing to more video ads (i.e., higher CPMs), faster Instagram revenue growth, and lower competition from SNAP than we had previously projected," Martin wrote.
Facebook is now "becoming the de facto near-monopoly mobile choice for brands and direct response (i.e., lead-gen) advertisers," she added."
Anyone jumping out right before earnings for the drop then getting back in a bit later?
