I just don't quite understand Facebook at times, why spend $1 Billion on Instagram only to create a competitor in Facebook Camera? Was the acquisition just to get rid of competition?

Just to maintain status quo on the "monopoly"

Oh why didn't they publish such bearish news on FB before the listing? That's a rhetorical question.

Facebook IPO: The Biggest Loser Appears to be UBS - http://www.valuewalk.com...oser-appears-to-be-ubs/

Quote:
Switzerland’s UBS AG (USA) (NYSE:UBS) is now reported to be the biggest loser. While the bank has not disclosed the total loss realized, The Wall Street Journal and CNBC have estimated the loss to be around $350 million.

If these reports stand are true, then UBS will be the largest loser in the IPO to date. The Switzerland based bank has vowed to use all means to recoup its losses, but insisted that it is yet to file a lawsuit over the matter, a company spokesperson said.


UBS has vowed to recoup those losses with whatever means... Short sellers will get killed soon from the current rebound! No need of playing ball with the ponzi master. You get hurt badly all the time...

Morgan Stanley Facebook IPO: Small Investors Screwed Again? And you wonder why the ponzi masters call us muppets!

http://www.forbes.com/si...nvestors-screwed-again/
Quote:
Why any investor would willingly do business with Morgan Stanley is hard to understand given their track record of governmental violations and questionable business operations. Could it be perhaps that investors’ opinion of MS is based primarily on the image projected through their not inconsiderable budget for public relations, marketing and advertising rather then these public facts?

Morgan Stanley’s governmental investment violation

* 2002 Illegal rewards for selling affiliated mutual funds $2.25 million
* 2003 Conflicts of interest research analysts $75 million
* 2003 Inappropriate influence and improper “spinning” $400 million
* 2003 Censure and penalty for illegal marketing of IPOs $100 million
* 2004 Failure to deliver documents to investors $13 million
* 2005 IPO Violations $40 million
* 2005 Failure to disclose info to mutual fund clients $6.25 million
* 2005 Willful violation of the Advisors Act of 1940 $208 million
* 2005 Failure to supervise its sales force $5 million
* 2006 Failure to maintain and enforce policies $10 million
* 2007 Failures for best execution $7 million
* 2007 Failure to supervise sales peoples deceptive actions $15 million
* 2007 Provided false information to regulators $12 million
* 2007 Failure to provide customers with required information $17 million
* 2005 Improper sales of securities $8.5 million
* 2008 Inappropriate sales of auction rate securities $35 million
* 2008 Misled tens of thousands of investors $100 million
* 2009 Failed to supervise sales people $5.4 million

It is sad that though a huge portion of Facebook has been out with the IPO, only losses have constantly been reported other than what the people actually thought things would go.

And it seems like Mark Cuban, the owner of last year's NBA champion team was one of those who got robbed almost 200 thousand dollars because of losses his investment suffered.

Seeking alpha still maintains its strong sell recommendation 2 months after the IPO float - http://seekingalpha.com/...ck-analysis-strong-sell

At $31.36, FB's trailing P/E is an eye popping 70+. How the hell are they supposed to make such outsized profits going forward to maintain that lofty P/E?!

My target still remains $10 or lower!

A BBC investigation
suggests companies are
wasting large sums of
money on adverts to gain
"likes" from Facebook
members who have no
real interest in their
products.
It also appears many account holders who click on the links have lied about their
personal details.

Facebook reports loss due to Zuckerberg payout
Facebook has reported a
$157m (£100m) loss on
payments to shareholders such as chief executive Mark Zuckerberg in its first results since its
eagerly anticipated stock
market listing in May.
Second quarter costs and
expenses nearly quadrupled, up 295% to $1.93bn from the same period last year.
Excluding staff share
schemes, Facebook would have made a profit of $295m.
In its statement, Facebook said the rise was driven primarily by "share-based
compensation expense".
Shares fell 11% in after-hours trade in New York to a record low of $23.94

Soon overbullish aka hype-star FB analysts will be eating humble pies this way - http://go.bloomberg.com/...-zynga-analyst-at-btig/

As for Sanford C clients, they must be a happy lot as the firm was right to make a $25 call slump for FB on listing. FB has slumped to test the $23 handle.

UBS Profit Falls 58% on Investment Banking, Facebook Loss

Quote:
UBS AG (UBSN), Switzerland’s biggest bank, said second-quarter profit fell 58 percent, missing analysts’ estimates, as the company’s investment bank lost money on the Facebook (FB) Inc. stock sale.


http://www.bloomberg.com...tment-banking-loss.html

Quote:
The equities unit’s revenue was hurt by what UBS called a “gross mishandling of Facebook’s market debut by Nasdaq.” The bank, which entered orders for Facebook shares multiple times because Nasdaq wasn’t confirming them “for several hours,” said it will take legal action against the exchange.


That last quote means only one thing - FB stock is going to tank badly...

I'm not holding my breath about that FB phone. First they need to solve the immediate revenue problem. How to monetize all those mobile phone page hits. Then they can launch that damn phone.

"Facebook's first tier of lock-up restrictions go away on Aug. 16, when about 271 million shares will be available for trading, with another 243 million shares set to become available for trading between mid-October and mid-November."

That will further depress the share...
