Who the hell cares? I could give you a list of hundreds of stocks that have risen 50% since September, that doesn't mean you should be buying any of them. Facebook stock is never going to rise like an Apple or Google. It'll never be a long term stock that you'll stick in your portfolio for a generation. If you want to gamble on it in the short term with a stock who just had an additional ~1 billion shares added to the float, be my guest. Knight Capital is more than happy to take the money of any idiot who wants to invest in this stock.

Yep, a short squeeze'll do that to you

What's 50% of 0?

WHen Facebook stock starting to nosedive, Top Men said buying at $20 would be a good move.

Top Men....

FB needs to go to $1.

A lot of stocks have impressive rises if you measure from it's all time low point.

Sirius XM Canada is the one that I should've bought. Ah well.

You said "now" twice.

So Facebook has rallied to recently settle at $25 per share. It only has $20 more per share to climb to reach the IPO price from just 6 month ago. Will Facebook stock reverse all its losses since its inception as a public traded company? I don't know, but it's a big hole to climb out of.

Subby must really want it now.

Remember Groupon? It rallied back after it fell following its IPO. Today it's trading around $3 a share.

Facebook is still 30% below its IPO.

Yeah, but Groupon sucked. Anyone ever actually use a groupon discount?

My son used a groupon discount for lasik this year. Both eyes for around $1k.

That's great, but raising 50% when you were down to 25% of your IPO price doesn't exactly make it to breaking even.

Facebook can fail for all I care. Forcing non-profits to pay to promote should be stopped.
