That's why I don't trade this stuff. It's just gambling. It's is beyond my comprehension why anyone would place orders to buy (or sell) a stock that has not yet traded a single share and no one has any idea of the market's view of a fair value price.

Did zuckerberg actually say he wanted to grow FB into its valuation? Ha.

What's the PE 100:1?

Interesting looking at Morgan Stanley's (lead underwriter) share price after facebook started trading. It trackes faceboook's price very closely. I suppose it's not surprising really. But could have traded MS as a proxy for facebook yesterday had I wanted.

Apart from whether you get the right direction, the spikes are scary.

The economics are terrifying...

Who ever went to FB and ended up buying anything.

Young web users do not have much purchasing power.

Grown ups will use specialised sites like this or LinkedIn etc.

The PE ratio is daft beyond comprehension.

Earnings???? What earnings??? Businesses already cancelling advertising???

Spikes are both unwanted as well as unavoidable. This usually happens as we are not able to control the order flow into the markets so we need to live with them

Only if you are on the wrong side of them

Your 2-line posting scheme is getting tiresome.
