Facebook (FB +6.2%), which posted big gains this week thanks to favorable comments from Mark Zuckerberg (I, II) and Ben Bernanke, has seen the rating for its iOS app jump from 1.5 stars to 4 since a major update was provided last month. Baird claims the update, which delivered a huge performance boost by abandoning HTML5 in favor of native iOS code, had produced a doubling of news feed story views. Hopefully for Facebook, mobile Sponsored Stories views have grown at a similar pace.

    Pumping the stock so that the employees and insiders can dump on gullible retail investors. Some people never learn...if they were really making money, they would shut up and release the numbers at the next earnings...all this pumping prior is indicative that the numbers don't look good...

    Zuckerberg's ego has been touched. I think you will be surprised. Anyhow, I am long since 19 and enjoying the ride. Enough short positions to have a nice burn up.


    Some people do learn and make a profit when opportunity winks.
