  • Facebook (FB) shares change hands at $44.10 in their final SharesPost auction, as the company shuts down private-exchange trading ahead of its IPO. The closing price translates into a valuation of $104B, or perhaps $110B+ after factoring IPO dilution. Separately, SharesPost rival SecondMarket is laying off 10% of its staff, as it copes with both Facebook's offering and a broader pickup in tech IPO activity.  [View news story]
    Seems to me like "big tech" has "vested interest" in "new tech", my opinion only.

  • Politicians' talk of $2.50/gallon gasoline isn't realistic, and the U.S. already enjoys the "cheapest energy in the world,” T. Boone Pickens says. He's “frustrated” that legislation which would put more natural gas into commercial trucks has gone nowhere: "You put natural gas... into heavy-duty trucks, you can bring down the price of diesel gasoline.

  • When looking across the investment spectrum, the stock market appears to represent "the best house in the financial asset neighborhood," says Omega Advisors CEO Leon Cooperman. When cash is at zero, Treasurys lag inflation and are reaching record high spreads versus high-yield bonds, "then you're left with equities."
