Why do you think fb will do so bad? Just curious. I mean no one really knows for sure. But considering the success of recent tech IPO's. It wouldn't be the worst bet in the world. Or one full of Classic Lulz either. lol

IMO it'll probably hit some stupidly inflated price soon after 18th, then spike up and down by about 50%. Lots of money to be made if you time it right, lots of money to be lost if you time it wrong. The latter is more likely.

Can't wait to see how this plays out. I think if the S&P is down more people would want to take a chance with this IPO. That sounds wierd but psycologically speaking if there is a remote chance of this thing seeing green on a red day, it will definetly sky rocket.

Will all equities trading brokers provide the ability to buy Facebook stock during the IPO or is it limited to a select few?

If the latter, could anyone offer a list of brokers who would provide this service?

They have been trying to get me to part with 10K to buy pre-IPO at $45.
They say it should go up to $100 straight away.

The only winners are going to be the people charging fees and comms on the IPO itself.
Any chance you can get let me know who the brokers are? i'll be interested to buy thanks!

hello
ipo range is $28 to $35 dollars a share, why do you want to get in contact with people selling at $45 dollars.

I can't see how we are going to be able to get it for 25-35 dollars....most of the initial investors and brokers would have got ti for that price and would sell it to us for higher.

Say they sold it to me for 45 but ti went up to 100 on the day ....iw ould mind losing out on teh inital 10 dollar difference to get more profit than that at the end of it.

does it not worry you that at $45 dollars a share the company will be valued well north of $100 billion with earnings of around $1 billion. it's a very young company with little trading history. do you have any idea how they double earnings next year and double them again over the years after that, because they need to to justify the market cap.
maybe you are looking to hold for just days/weeks to try and make 20% to 50%. high risk and in my opinion not worth it.

P/E 100 to 1? Sounds about right for a dotcom IPO.

I think this is what a lot of people will do come May 18th. It seems a little risky. But the general sentiment about this stock is that it will rise. Why fight that kind of optimism?

Cannot say anything about Face Book yet sine all will depend on the perception of the trades and the trading volumes that happen on the 18th May
