skozlaw: van1ty: It is a fact that the Facebook stock is 25% higher today than its IPO price

And Cisco, an established company with quarterly dividends, is up more than 30% over the same period with far less volatility. GE is up 40% over the same period, again, much more stable and also with good dividends.

What's your point? "It went up" doesn't really mean a whole lot in investing.

What's YOUR point?  It's up 25%.  By any metric that's a great return.

Valuation is entirely dependent on how well you have greased your banker, and nothing else.

The bankers got greased pretty damn well with this one. If they'd priced the offering higher (vs the $26 initial offer price announced thru brokerages) then Twitter wouldn't have left a billion or so on the table; instead the bankers won that share when they sold into the market at almost $20 higher than what Twitter received. n- twitter-after-this-ipo-debacle/

How can Twitter make money?

I'm not the CEO of Twitter. Honest. I'm just asking for a friend.

The secret Twitter business plan is to take stock positions and then tweet rumors that make the automated trading systems go bananas. They'll make a killing.
