Facebook At All-Time Lows; -31% From Highs

Tyler Durden's picture


UPDATE: 6 minutes into the day-session and FB has a $30 handle and 17mm shares traded.

1.8mm shares have traded this morning as the long-selling continues as the stock-that-shall-not-be-named traded as low as $32.70 this morning (from its $45 highs on Friday)...


Not helping matters is the Reuters report that:

"Morgan Stanley unexpectedly delivered some negative news to major clients: The bank's consumer Internet analyst, Scott Devitt, was reducing his revenue forecasts for the company. The sudden caution very close to the huge initial public offering, and while an investor roadshow was underway, was a big shock to some, said two investors who were advised of the revised forecast."

Cue the shareholder class-action lawsuits.

My back of an envelope calculation on this is that fair value is something like $2-4 a share (maybe less considering Zuckerberg is happy to trade away a year's ad profit buying an App that he could have duplicated in-house for maybe 0.01% of the cost), but for a while yet Facebook may survive above $10 a share (however without serious revenue growth even that considerably reduced price looks hugely inflated).

Biggest danger is Zuckerberg (Suckerberg?) the narcissist has majority voting rights, and can essentially do whatever he wants, including destroying the company buying crap like Instagram at bubble prices.

Bought another 300 shares yesterday - taking advantage of this discount. It's all about dollar-cost averaging. My average entry is now at $38 so I'm in the same boat as most of the top buy-side bidders at the original offering.

Just 300 shares? You must be po.

I know a bit about Ireland. The place is even more wired than the US. No matter what his agenda, totally sincere or CIA plant or anything in between, getting involved in Irish internal affairs would not have advanced his agenda.


He is not part of the in-crowd there, and never can be. If he makes Ireland look good and doesn't rock the curragh they will be nice to him. If he bothers them, they will drive him into exile to protect their control of their little postage stamp.

That will be a lose-lose position whereas the current situation is win-win.

That level of orchastration is too much for me to get my arms around.... but the scene in the godfather... U2 owes godfather a favor (or a series of favors) just like Johny Fontane.  Somewhere along the line, a band like U2 proves to be willing to play the game... like Frank Sinatra.  Seems more reasonable than a plant from the start.

Teenagers in their basement can own $750 million server complexes? Sure, someone can make a new social networking site, but without funding or income, cannot pay for the hardware needed.

Basically, the main constraint is rate of growth of the service. How many more social networking sites are people going to invest venture capital into? I suppose there is no barrier to entry, but only to growing big.

Facebook appears to emblematic of the entire market: without a real or convincingly implied backstop bid, it's just going to drift lower, and lower, and lower.   Of course, we can expect the occasional sharp pullback similar to what we have in stocks today, but when the tide turns back down FB could be swept even further away with it.

What do they really have to sell except your privacy?

It's certainly newsworthy... the IPO that was going to save the market... the tax revenue that is going to save California... the intreague around the possible CIA connections, etc. etc. etc.  I find that last part fascinating... along with one of the threads yesterday about codifying propaganda.  I think about the facebook movie... I didn't see it... so my opinion could be way off the mark, but how many motion pictures get made glorifying a company with possible CIA ties, as that company get ready to go public?  And it was up for Best Picture (maybe it won?).  What a campaign.

I don't really go to the movies anymore (more a function of having kids than any sort of protest... I do still enjoy going... just don't have much of chance) but I remember thinking, when the movie came out, that it seemed a little odd.  Looking back, I didn't think too hard about it... gave it a kind of cursury, "that's an odd subject for a movie" and moved on.  I had no interest in seeing it, so it didn't really have much of an impact either way.

But now looking back, it seems especially odd.  I kind of want to see it now... is the subject matter really that captivating?  Does it merit a motion picture instead of some sort of CNBC one hour special (also propaganda, obviously, but to a slightly different audience)? Throw in facebooks role in things like the Arab Spring, it all becomes fairly interesting.

That's so more important people than us can make money out of it at this time and when the CFD's etc. come online, all the action will be over. Anyone with half a brain could have seen this immediate fall in value. It was just set up to make the rich richer as they all piled into selling in minute 1 having bought their stakes months ago. No doubt that gave Bono a boner.

Who cares?

They had an IPO, some folks bought at the start price and sold and made money.  Some bought and sold and lost money.  The stock is now lower.

Who cares?  Why is this such headline news?

Bizarre post.  I post that I don't understand why the FB IPO is that relevant, and you reply with "FI doesn't care about the world."  Bizarre.

I follow ZH because it provides commentary on the economic condition of the world that you can't get in the MSM.  I'm a lot less concerned with the ups and downs of equity markets than most, I'd guess.  The direction is all down, I knew that before ZH.  What ZH does is give me the guided tour of the path we're taking, ahead of when we're taking it.

To understand this market is to understand this bullshit IPO, bullshit company, and bullshit underwriters.

I think you're projecting, FrankIvy. You are in good company here by not caring about Facebook. However, just because you and lots of people on ZH don't think it's valuable doesn't mean it's not being portrayed that way by folks looking to cash in on its popularity. The Facebook situation is a microcosm of broken markets and Internet company bubbles; it's a reminder that "the market" actually isn't one anymore; the stock market exists to make certain players rich, and it ain't you nor me.

I need to "dig deeper mentally" to see this?  Why can't somebody just spell it out?  ZH's point for the years I've been reading, fundamentally, is that the economic system is unsustainable and rigged by and for bankers and elite interests. 

Not sure how FB IPO price exceeding current price makes any of that more or less true.

Because it is a very large example, of how the system is so perverted.  You have the smartest guys on the street working on the deal of the year (2nd largest IPO in history), and look at the outcome.  It is interesting news because we still don't know if the MS greenshoe is exhausted or MS is making a killing now.  It is interesting because the price might not stabilize at 30, it might go to 20, or?  It is interesting because it really is the beginning of the story, there are months ahead where a lot of stock will hit the market.  It is interesting because Facebook really did do something amazing, get 1 billion (less the fakes and duplicate) users in what really is a short amount of time, and now the metamorphasis begins as the company will come under immense pressure to grow (and maybe even sustain) profits.

I'll tell you why it's important. FB tanking might very well be the nail in the coffin for retail investor participation in this rigged market. Volume may never come back and we are inching ever closer to the mother of all crashes.

I said this above....

It's certainly newsworthy... the IPO that was going to save the market... the tax revenue that is going to save California... the intreague around the possible CIA connections, etc. etc. etc.  I find that last part fascinating... along with one of the threads yesterday about codifying propaganda.  I think about the facebook movie... I didn't see it... so my opinion could be way off the mark, but how many motion pictures get made glorifying a company with possible CIA ties, as that company get ready to go public?  And it was up for Best Picture (maybe it won?).  What a campaign.

Facebook's crash at some point will be a symbol.

So the FB IPO was set up by MS in a manner that fooled retail investors into buying the stock at an elevated price?

That's it? 

That's criminal?

A bunch of idiot retail investors who have watched stocks beat the crap out of Mom and Pops since at least 1999 buy FB and lose money and this is big news because FB owners and bankers made money.

Because it may start a market run.
