  • Facebook IPO: Like It At $40, Love It At $32? [View article]
    I think what has really gotten lost in all the analysis and technical data is something very important that doesn't show up in any reporting. This idea was hatched by a handful of college kids in a dorm room and in a mere 7 years grown into a billion dollar company. I don't know how you value that but its worth acknowledging. Secondly Facebook has already shown that it is a buyer when you talk about patents and other up and coming companies that will bolster its own portfolio. So I am not necessarily convinced that looking only at Facebook for future revenue streams or forecasts can be completely accurate. Lastly when you speak of following the herd when I see companies like Microsoft pony up hundreds of millions of dollars to invest I think that is telling. Facebook is new and will have to prove a lot but I don't think it has deserved the nearly 100% negative feedback its received leading up to and after the IPO. I am a believer that Facebook with all the talent they have and money will be able to figure out a way to grow the business. I think that it may come as a surprise when they do it in a way no one expects....

  • How Will The Facebook IPO Perform? [View article]
    I am not sure what the strategy is of all those people and analysts that say they are going to stay away from this stock. This company has not begun to monetize and is only beginning to put together a strategy that moving forward could put Facebook (the company) in many industries. They have secured hundreds of patents and alliances with companies like Microsoft which could be an enormous lift up for a young company. I look at this as the second coming of Google for those who missed out.
