van1ty: It is a fact that the Facebook stock is 25% higher today than its IPO price
I sound fat: DerpHerder: van1ty: vonmatrices: van1ty: Drollia: When it flops like Facebook did, everyone is going to be "shocked"Facebook IPO: $38 a share.Current price per share: $48Yeah those people who bought Facebook stock sure got hosed.You're missing the in between period where facebook was around 18$.So just wait and buy twitter when it hits the trough.What on earth does that have to do with whether or not Facebook bombed. It is a fact that the Facebook stock is 25% higher today than its IPO price. That is a fantastic ROI for just over a year.It all depends on if they have the revenue stream figured out. FB didn't really get it figured until right around the IPO. FB would seem to be at an overall advantage in revenue and size as well as time so well see how it turns out.The facebook trough, while predictable, was made worse by hype. It did deserve to drop, as I said in the last post, but once it started, it started a dropping frenzy.
Nexzus: How does twitter make money?
downstairs: how on earth are they going to make any money?
Rapmaster2000: It makes sense for Twitter.Sure, the Facebook IPO was a failure for you the investor because you didn't get your initial bump, but FB got more than they were worth. It was a huge win for them.The more overvalued a company is at the IPO, the better a deal it is for that company.
Reverend J: I would short the fark out of that stock if I had any money.
