    Facebook is not going to go well. You douchebags in finance can say whatever you want, it's only hope as a company is to acquire something with a better future than itself.

    IPO/early investors are still down around 11% from debut price.

    Congrats to those who stuck it out. I'd get the fuck out now and take profits if you have 'em. Should be interesting to see Q3 numbers and some trends. I'm not sure how to make sense of their ER, e.g. what constitutes active users, etc. and we all know company defined metrics are softer than baby shit, but should be an interesting ride for anyone with some cash to play with.

    Personally, I just bought some puts.

    Our FB discussion though was back in March when it was in the mid-20's (not the IPO date, which I would have stayed clear from). I'm in on average at $21.6. I would consider taking some profits (as I believe many others will in the next few days), but I don't know what I'd put it in that would have a higher liklihood than FB rising another 10%.

    Too bad no one here got in on the IPO, so your frame of reference has no relevance.

    I'm up over 20% on the basis I got my clients in at. So there's that...

Unless you have a ton of money and/or risk adverse, then have fun, otherwise I'd say the majority of people on this board should not be dicking around with IPOs when the underlying fundamentals of the company are crap.
    Probably worth revisiting this gem... damn those 200% returns!

    I was wrong about facebook. I still think it is a shit company that is solely making revenue based upon Candy Crush addicts.

    Facebook is the future of humankind as we know it. Pretty soon it will be difficult or impossible to function in day to day life without a Facebook account. Your lives will be governed by a snooping, for-profit corporation. We will choose our elected leaders based on how many likes they get.

    It is time to rise up, brothers and sisters, and defeat this evil monster, the enemy of humankind. REBEL! DELETE YOUR ACCOUNTS!

    I sign on to FB maybe twice a week. I read where the "kids" are getting away from FB because the old people use it so much now. FB will go the way of Myspace one day. It's always something bigger and better. In response to this thread though: At the end of the month, after all the bills are paid, I come out about 3k ahead. If I really live another 50 years, I just worry about inflation more than anything. cr****

    What do you nerds think of RE-MAX, Twitter, and the piece of shit King/candy crush stocks? REMAX I'm all for at $27-$35 I want a piece. Twitter fucking baffles me, where is the revenue? King I'm all for. 4 million a day? That shit is straight up crack.

    Disappointing, I know. If only more people invested in child prostitutes, right? Now there's a blue-chip stock!

    Interesting thread.....

    BABA is a hold. I am sure that their new found cash will lead to a few investments in start ups. I heard they are already starting a bank....

    I have faith in Steven Ma.

    As a general rule: when an analyst says hold it means sell where buy means hold.

    I like Ma too but it's hard for amateurs like you and I to justify the risk involved in investing in foreign equities, least to say investing companies located in far away communist nations whose laws and economic order are vaguely understood, especially when there are good buys here at home. That's not to say BABA isn't a good long term buy. I'm not in the market right now anyways.

    Consider first what you don't know: this game is about risk management.

    Wow, a Vigo post I can agree with (except for the analysts "general rule"). I'd put a small amount into BABA for speculative purposes knowing there is considerable risk. Shareholder rights? None. Counterfeit goods being peddled en masse? Oh well. Uncertain foreign landscape? Yup. Convoluted financials and corporate structure? You bet. I agree there are plenty of domestic investments to be made. If you have some extra bucks to play around with, why not. But don't be fooled, this isn't a get rich quick scheme.
