Facebook's (FB) brutalizing after going public may be the best thing that could've happened to the company, says Pimco's Mohamed El-Erian. Prior to its IPO, the company could do no wrong, but suddenly that's all changed. It's mystique has been replaced by the harsh reality of analyst's calls and downgrades. Hopefully, if FB's reality check is successfully internalized by management and staff, the company may well avoid what could have been an even bigger shock down the road.
