One of my new favorite bookmarks - Checking how the FB stock is doing. I'm secretly rooting for it fail. I know I can't be the only one ..
Yeah, I have to say that seeing facebook end up in the same inevitable place as myspace is something I've been waiting for for a long time. I wish it would hurry up already. Thinking the public offering will certainly bring it on.

Rainbows, unicorns and fairy dust rain down on Wall Street, LOVE IT!

Remember, You heard it on DR 1st!

"Short FaceBook"*

*Short FaceBook means you think it's going lower, you'd SELL FaceBook 1st, then, BUY it back later. You make a sale without any inventory (aka "Sell Short")
FaceBook is a mess. Investor lockup expires tomorrow. It's BUY TIME for FB.

Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA) <== watch.
p.p.s. ck out XOMA ($1.36). Biotech, Dollar cost averaging. I'll be adding if >$1.50 and again if >$2 with a $4.40 target (on my tweet yesterday)

I'm looking back on my old posts and I wanted to point out that each stock tip Joe and I gave had 500%+ gains within 2 years of this post. We are in the wrong business, Joe!

p.s. I'm back on here. What did I miss?

How will Facebook grow revenue from this point on?
In every business*, the leadership's vision matters. Zuckerburg is a genius.


*Incl'ing the one you're in now ;-)

Can someone please tell me how a company's best revenues are $3.7B but the company is valued at $75B-$100B?

85% of it's revenues are from advertising, a dollar amount about 10x less than Google's $30B. And to boot? FB ad sales are "slackening," according to eMarketer.

AMAZING Social Network and "social" property!!

But how does that make it a good BUSINESS investment?

The really cool thing? (if you are a business) is that the Revenue Pressure Model is ON! once you are public. Look for major, major changes from FB this Summer to live-up to the hype.

Then again, if those changes mitigate a mass migration to G+, Pinterest, (Twitter??), or God Knows What, then....

Question: how did that whole Tech Bubble thing begin and end in the Late 90's??
haha JQ. Facebook stock has gone up 400% since you posted this 5 yrs ago.

Blake,

Ck out this freak show of a post I made for Dale Pollack back in 2008. Manheim’s Used Vehicle Index | Velocity | DalePollak.com

People read that and look at me like I'm from mars (which usually means I'm on to something ;-)

The stock market is tanking. Will the sell-off cascade into the UC market?
  1. Interest Rates now at 8-year highs.
  2. Used Car Prices now all-time highs
  3. Gasoline now at 2 yr highs.
