Chinese "Facebook" Does Chinese "Faceplant" As Chinese IPO Bubble Pops

Tyler Durden's picture

So much for the Chinese IPO bubble, which accounted for 25% of all public offerings in the past year. DATE, which just went public at $11, is now plummeting as underwriters have entirely abdicated their market floor duties. Below is the much vaunted "Chinese Face Book" RenRen, whose epic collapse is a harbinger of what will happen to our own pretty soon. Also, we demonstrate what happens when an equity bubble pops and an IPO stock plunges 10% below its IPO price in 25 minutes or less.

Just praying Groupon goes public before the Fed bubble pops, that would be my #1 short position.  Unfortunately I don't think they will make the window.

CME raised margin requirements on RenRen??

Fuck. As soon as QE3 is announced I'm hiring some programmers to make 'The Chinese Adultfriendfinder'. Then I'm going to IPO it and retire to my desert island.

What does it all mean's picture

You just took my bright idea.... thank you very much.

AdultFriendFinder/Friendster, a cheezy porn peddling company, and representative of the 'New Amerikan Economy' (along with those peddlers of smut like Goldman Sachs & JP Morgan who are engineering shitty financial products) is well below 1st day IPO offer, too.

At least inAFF you can see where revenue would come from... if people want to see some fake sexy profiles they have to subscribes.... user base = money....

In facebook, skype or linkedin users do not pay anything.... so .... well... there s only a limit to the amount of advertising we can take

To be honest, i cant belive that POS of a firm was allowed to even IPO out here. If anyone's had a chance to look at the website, its a fucking blatant ripoff of facebook. 

Hmm... could that maybe explain why FB is blocked in China? 


Fuck renren.

Did anyone here ever look at individual stock charts from the Shanghai bourse in, say, the early 2000s before all the froth formed?

I concluded the Shanghai stock exchange was  obviously rigged, and I swore off Chinese 'stocks' then and there and have had no occasion whatsoever to regret that decision.

It helped to know a little of the background of the nascent 'stock market boom' in China; how it was sold to the public; how the trading rooms in the PRC resembled offtrack betting salons; how the public had previously been swindled by Taiwanese RE hustles and pyramid schemes.

burn baby burn.

gosh, you don't mean to imply that the vaunted China, Inc. is nothing more than a counterfeiting shop, do you?

Why the fuck haven't we tariffed everything from that shithole?

You do not understand Duncan Niederauer's penchant for capital destruction.  We knew months ago, with the first batch, that these things were junk.  Yet, out come the IPOs...and ra ra goes the BlowHorn [CNBC].

And this morning BlowHorn conversation was, "Does the Raj conviction restore confidence in the US markets?"

It's all good, Facebook is a rip-off too.

All the HF's unwinding positions and moving to off-shore cash positions?  Preferably in Argentina?

Also, Goldman Sachs swore up and down that Facebook was worth 500 billion, for starters.

More Goldman Sachs 'valued clients' get led to the sausage grinder.

Everything is going to go POP when Elenin eclipses the sun.  Please wake up from your slumber.

Comet Elenin is coming Sept 27, 2011.  From mythology, stars are considered angels and comets are considered archangles. Comet Elenin will be the mightiest archangel of them all.  It will try to overpower the sun (god of old) when it crosses directly between the earth and sun and it will literally fall to earth.  This comet is the origin of all the old myths about the mightiest angel who fell from grace, banished by god (the sun), and fell to earth … better known to everyone as Lucifer.

This comet’s vapor trail is saturated with dust (as all comets are) and it will sweep and engulf the earth in October (the fallen angel).  The massive vapor and dust tail will engulf the earth and create enormous rainclouds for DAYS all over the world.  Water levels will rise everywhere.

A massive flood is coming in October.  This is not a joke. This is not a test.

SP-666 will be taken out before October.

Bankster criminals, murderers and thieves (and all their ilk) have kept this “little” event secret for centuries. For nothing but pure greed and hatred for the rest of humanity, sheeple and markets have been lied to and manipulated for millennium so those greedy little devils … “chosen people” can “inherit the earth” after this event.  They are stealing and raping everyone now to accumulate every last ounce of gold (money) before October.

It will not be funny in October.

Can you promise to post back on Sept 28 so that we can have a pleasant discussion then?

You need to up your voltage.  Seriously.

ROFL...A review of the meds regimen and dosages would also seem to be needed.

If that happens as you predict, then it will be much easier to get TPTB and deal with them in an appropriate way and start over

where will the water come from?

SP666_IsComing's picture

Cosmic dust is how our clouds form.  The solar winds either pushes the dust away (high pressure system) or allows it to fall (low pressure system) where water vapor attaches to the dust partices to form clounds.  Elenin will be swamping the earth with dust and the earth will resemble Venus, covered with clouds constantly.  On Earth it will form rain like noone could possibly imagine.

Thanks for the insight.. and glad you could share with us this so well kept secret that has been hidden for the last centuries...

p.s. Lots of rain = Colorado safest place on Earth = oh hang on .... maybe you folks should look at this maybe next time you drink so much on a night out, you should stay away from a computer desk?

Just as we speak (eh, write), there are quite a few "forward"-looking research houses continued to pop the buy-EM-fenzy...

Bears at home talked into buying abroad.

Think delayed QEx wouldn't affect EM?

There is only one source of hot money.

Synthetic Tops in Commodities Provided by the CFTC to the detriment of Americans and Betterment of “People’s Republic of China”!


Every time the CFTC releases its Margin Hike Press Release after hours here in the United States.. China gets to front run the Fucking Dip!


It is not bad enough that the idiots who back test blindly will cause artificial drag on the market with the Synthetic Peaks that have been provided to them, the algo’s can NOT even grasp the concept and for the most part the people who are programming are going to favor the numerically correct solution based on the larger law of averages..


But an American Commission, that is supposed to protect Americans.. is empowering China to once again have the upper hand?


What the FUCK?


Our Government has given China enough freebies for the week! And last week and pretty much going forward for-fucking-ever!


I hate stupid people! I hate the stupid Government that allows 50,000 jobs to go to China a MONTH! Now China gets to front run the downward pressure in Metals which benefits CHINA! Which is a foreign Power! More than the Americans it is supposed to help in the long run!!




Senate Republicans blocked a Democratic Bill to End tax Breaks for Moving U.S. Jobs Offshore! 50,000 Manufacturing Jobs a Month since 2001 have LEFT! The United States for China!


How much more are we going to have to give China? When is enough stupidity enough? This Country is FUCKED! And no one gives a shit! Everyone wants to pray for the rapture or live the lie of the Treasury! And where in the FUCK are the people charged with securing the national Security of the Country? Those mother fuckers are the First ones that should be hung for treason.. going back 30 – 40 years!

Get Jimmy Carter at the head of the line by the gallows.

At ease, Cpl!

It was Nixon that opened the door to China, not Carter.  Carter was a boomer (nuke attack sub commander - not baby boomer) and no friend of the Chinese.

When does the "Circle Jerk"  IPO come out? (symbol JIZ).

I'm sure if Bob Pisani, Jim Cramer, Maria ("G6") Bartiromo, Becky ("Licky") Quick, and Warren ("Astroglide") Buffet all endorse it at a "roundtable" it will "fly" (pun intended - though Bob may be the only one with any spunk left).
