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
