Hurricane vs Tsunami.
I really would have picked the Tsunami... but know I know better, and I will heed the words of Subotai: My god is greater. My god is the everlasting sky. Your god lives beneath him.

I have a hard time working up any sympathy for anything 'Facebook'.

Don't, feel sympathy for those people with lots of money and no sense who believed the hype machine.

I can't think of anything better for the economy than for Wall Street to be shut down for a while. Businesses might be able to make good decisions without having to keep an eyeball on the stock ticker for once.

I blame the internet and 24/7 trading.

And that stock will have to wait one more day as the Market will be closed tomorrow.

The locked shares were fully disclosed and have remained known to the market since the IPO. Therefore, "efficent market" theory says the unlocking of those shares is already fully discounted in the current market price. Heh. Let's wait and see.

Yes, I'm sure every independent investor performed the proper due diligence and made a rational, calculated decision to buy Facebook stock based on real world performance projections and not just "ZOMG! Time to cash in on what those kids are doing these days! Dot-Com 3.0!!! Unlimited possibilities!!!11!1!"

The invisible hand of the free market is going to be balled into a fist and inserted into the backsides of many an unwary investor come Wednesday.

They piled all the bullshiat into rows, effectively diverting the water.

Are you going to also apologize for your comment on facebook's stock as well? Because it stopped dropping two months ago and has stabilized.

I thought these "locked" shares were mostly the ones given employees as signing bonuses and things like that. Most of the people who bought the stock when it went public have been free to sell it all along, haven't they?

If I'm not mistaken, those locked stocks of the rank-and-file are locked for a few more weeks....
