The  BOOBS who invested in Facebook are the very same boobs that had a job and still believed in Hoax and Change.

For those who say that people get conned due to a lack of math skills..That's BS....

People trying to get rich quick fall prey to cons..and sometimes the conman gets over on some innocent sucker/mark..

A visual demonstration:

Was it math skills that got the store owner screwed or was it that she just wasn't paying attention?


Know your cons....

Maybe people need more knowledge in "slight of hand" skills.

with all the porn on the internet you'd think there'd have been an IPO by now. seriously, you'd have had an IPO bigger than apple if you could sell the idea. 

biggest porn company in the world!

The farce that just keeps on giving. Like!

It's a little known statistical fact that exactly half the population are below average intelligence, and half are above.

Overlay the 101 ways to transfer wealth from the duped to the dupers.. and someday you get something really brilliant.  Like stock fads.  Real estate manias.  Abandonment of fundamental investment principles.  And a world where less than half the folks fervently believe that a website that allows people to betch and post boring pics of their lives would earn a valuation multiple 5x that of companies that've been around for multiple centuries (say, Heinz), makes real products and earns money. 

Oh lords of the Zerohedge, please link your site to FB so I may better "like" your articles.

A military veteran by the name of Brandon J. Raub was allegedly detained for posts on his facebook page.

 No kidding WB7. A Dog can and will take a dump any time and any place it chooses. I love canines.

All kidding aside, that chart depicts precisely how todays IPO scam works and trust me, the people who perpetrate it are not embarrassed in the least.

So yes, I am reposting it with the intention of rubbing it in.

There are plenty of other pieces of dog shit out there that fit into the same chart. What mind boggling here is the size of the current float and the overhang of restricted shares that will free up for trading in the next 18 months. Who could not see this coming except the perfect fool?

What mind boggling here is the size of the current float and the overhang of restricted shares

Yes indeed.  I remember not too terribly long ago when AT&T had the largest float of any stock issued at just over a billion shares.  It was considered mind-bogglingly large at the time.  FB has something like 1.2 or 1.4B of float overhang scheduled to come onto the market between now and the end of the year...in addition to the IPO load.  

You could also have predicted this when they made a movie of Suckerberg, FB was on the cover of magazines, and the hype surrounding the company was bordering on idol worship.  The other day though I heard the anchors on BB dissing FB saying they never use it anymore, implying it's so 2011.  Yeah, right, where were these clowns last spring when their assessment would have been more valuable?  What a scam.

I know a few people who use FB quietly and enjoy what they are doing. But they would never pay a dime for it, because it is mediocre in terms of its functionality and top heavy with bullshit that everyone hates.

Now they think they are too big to fail. Famous last words.

the chart is, in actuality, a very clear and honest attempt to chart the reality of the underlying mechanisms/dynamics


its quite remarkable and it is also delightful :)

                                                                                               Banzai-7 I'm appalled!   Why would allow this behavior on your Z/H open thread?

                       It's nice to have you back WB-7!

Karl Denninger stated just after FB went public that it was worth 2-4 bucks a share.

BTW, he was serious.

and of course, the Donglicker's advice as an equities trader savant is just flawless isn't it? That's why his site is essentially dying a slow death by lack of traffic.

Do your own analysis!

Have you heard of fundamental analysis? Google it fuckface

He said this......she said that....blah blah

You are a gimp

"I let out my barbaric yawp" (Walt Whitman)...yet again. In the world of "over/under" what is the under of integrity again? Of course Wall Street is shameless... but broke too? You would think they might TONE IT DOWN a little when it comes to proclaiming doing exactly the wrong thing "for both the folks and the Street." the irony...no the DECENCY...is that equities rose not only today but all week..and now all Summer. How does the market expand its breadth and depth when the folks tasked with giving the folks the most basic of truths ("Facebook is a moonshot and we're swimming in oil--SELL!") simply talk la la land instead? What does this say about the view of the people who really DO have integrity in that world? "Now back to your regularly scheduled programmer" folks! Sorry to bother ya 'bout it.

Worth $2.00 MAYBE

I was hoping you would bring back the Hopium Continuum for FB.

That's one of my favorites.

I thought insiders weren't allowed to sell their shares for 2 years after going public. When did this change?

The lockup arrangements are contractual.

maybe facefall will get desperate and ask groupon to sell its stock in gangbanged and couponed prices in Walmart. 

Befuddled, bewildered and spreadeagled; but never abandoned and spoiled beyond recognition.
