Given that Faceobok's stock is at an all time high and up like 100% over it's IPO I'm not sure that really rings true any more, unless you jumped on the IPO just to flip it...

Looking up Facebook stocks would have been hard for subby. :(

Who's the more foolish, the fool who doesn't fact check his headlines, or the fool who blindingly greenlights the headline?

So really rich guys are publicly saying they like Apple, and it's a good stock to own?
Time to sell.

I really don't understand the headline.  Facebook's stock is way up.  Basically, if you bought it and didn't immediately sell it when it dropped (as most sky high IPOs do), you have made money.

Billionaires don't tend to do that.

Facebook's P/E is at 105 right now. Apple's is at 13. And you can't call them a startup anymore.

Now what does that remind you of???

What does that have to do with the fact that the headline is moronic, unreality, or have anything to do with what I said?

I think they're both overvalued.

And headline is proof billionaires don't submit headlines on FARK.

I would be deadly afraid of buying FB stock. As we saw with Myspace, social networks can go down the tubes really fast.

As far as billionaires go, I'm thinking Mark Zuckerberg likes Facebook stock.

But really, I don't think these guys would be all that worried about profiting from their stock purchases. This is nothing more than investment porn.

If I had to guess, it would be the former. The latter knew it would generate clicks and comments such as yours.

/And, mine, I guess.
