Facebook (FB +5%) bounces on news Mark Zuckerberg won't be selling shares for at least a year. Zynga (ZNGA +2.5% - previous) is also trading higher. Earlier, the president of Facebook institutional investor CoRise went on CNBC (video) to talk up the company's e-commerce potential. "If they just got 2 percent of their 500 million people that live on Facebook every single day to buy something through an Amazon store ... Facebook would get $1 billion or so in commissions."

    Where were the "Facebook Experts" ... the "Facebook Bears" when the IPO was ripe?

    5% bounce because someone threw a dead cat out the window.

    Good dead cat bounce will be very much appreciated. I love this stock.
    So volatile. you can make money being long or short on this stock. just pick entry and exit points cautiously.

    2% of 500 million people - that's the old sucker trap.

     

    How many times have you heard "If we get just 1% of the China market, we will be gazillionaires".

     

    Extremely stupid comment to hype stock.

    Amazon.com now delivers to Canada with extremely fast delivery times and relatively cheap rates. I just ordered Pyrex beakers - set of 5 - for $28.99, and with tax, import taxes and delivery charges and the exchange rate, the total came out to $57. That is great considering the cheaper quality beakers sold in Canada will cost $43 delivered and take longer to arrive.
