The Facebook Backlash Begins

Tyler Durden's picture




 

While it may come as no surprise to market-watchers, the market for over-priced internet IPOs seems to have become a little soft. Bloomberg is reporting that Kayak, which first filed to go public in November 2010 and put its plans on hold earlier this year because of choppy market conditions, is delaying its IPO. The online-travel service roadshow was just postponed and guess who the lead bank on Kayak's IPO was - yep, Morgan Stanley.

Morgan Stanley is going to be a bit busy defending Facebook litigation, they probably won't have time for IPO's for awhile.

They were spotted in China (of all places). I know she's from there but still? Maybe they're adopting a couple babies. Can Jews and Chinese even have babies? Isn't there some potential genealogical problem? I know that Jews and Blacks are not recommended to procreate due to some gene defect.

Hate me now, yes I'm one thefacebook.  I do not care.  I frankly only use it now to play scrabble with my mother and sister who live on opposite sides of Canada, Im stuck in middle.

 

Its actually fun to play, keeps your mind going and you can keep in touch with family in an interactive way.  But just recently FagBook has added "adds" that play and interrupt your game...BUT you can pay FagBook money to have them removed, but only for a little while.

 

Im done.........

Pretty much most of us, but that does not detract from its entertainment value.

On another note, Kayak pulliing its IPO due to rough waters seems kind of counterintuitive.

First I am not a bigot... I hate intollerant people... as well as Arabs, Jews, Whites, Blacks and some Red Heads.... but that is beside the point.

If I had Zeefags money I would marry a Chineese girl, but make here live in Norway. That way she would seem exotic around all that blonde pussy.

Then I would also marry an Irish gal, and make her live in the Congo. Same theory. I would visit them both often with my hareem of hookers.

Of course I would write my own personal profile and claim I was born in Kenya, the son of an engineer and a hump back whale.

But other than that I would try to just live a quiet life.

Something quite stunning I've noticed is that in the new dotcom bubble, companies are valued not by P/E but by projected future P/E. This is fancyspeak for counting chickens before they hatch.

FB's P/E is still a laughably high 92, and all the MSM hacks saying FB is cheap at $25 are idiots.

Pay attention to your demographics. After the Boomers, the "kids" are the next big generation. While they are cash strapped, they will grow up, marry, have babies, and run up credit cards more than likely.

So, when your primary consumer is computer-oriented, addicted to the internet (literally, look it up), and checks their facef%^k 10 times a day, well... I see gold in them hills.

That being said, even gold has a price and I'm not sure that mountain will have as much gold as the survey estimated... wait for further analysis before placing an offer on the table! Might just be the next MySpace (who?).. lol ^_^

Hilarious how IPO's are being pulled now due to the "Black Swan" and "Endgame" which is being hastened by the fantastic runaway rally in the U.S. Dollar, Treasuries, and Muni-Bonds.

You do know that every single airline will match any price you see on a travel site if you call them. Many airlines are no longer granting perks like miles and other things like complimetary upgrades if you purchase tickets from an outside site.

Buying directly from the airline also allows you to cance and change tickets far easier.

The stock valuation of Pricline is the greatest travesty ever to be thrust on man.

I actually would buy Kayak over Facebook. At least Kayak saves me money by doing the sort of price comparison I would need half an hour for when using other online agents at a click of the mouse. It even tells me if Ryanair flies from a nearby airport and how much it will charge. Overall, with four people in the household, I think Kayak can help us make an extra trip a year

So the scenario you suggested, created competition?

You made my point, sir.

OPESF was touted to being purchased by FB yesterday. Stock was ramped up and today some suckers caught the knife. No volume to speak of but still, the story was good for them for a day.

FB will announce soon that they're buying oil and gas fields in Africa before they reverse merge with an African gold miner and getting a new symbol.

Mark my words.

Doubt it. Facebook's greatest asset is information and we all know Uncle Sam has a penchant for the stuff!

Zuckerberg strikes me as a Bilderberger wannabe, if he's not already being groomed for it. Look for legislative policy changes that eliminate more of your privacy rights and I'll bet you'll find a correlation with Facebook profits if not share price.

As far as African mining, what would Suckerberg (intentional) do without other's ideas? The kid has built his billionaire empire stealing ideas and dodging contractual obligations.

Now that I say it, maybe he's got what it takes. I hear African governments are pretty damn corrupt. ^_^

But what is going to happen to poor color.com, face.com, and all the other worthless shit companies that have nothing more than a shitty website and an app that saves peple about 5 seconds of precious time?

They are all supposed to grant their 20 year old founders billions of dollars for doing 15 minutes of work. You can't expect anyone from an Ivy League college to actually go out and start a real business, gasp make actual profit.

How is Fuckerberg going to make all those extra 3500 employees he needs to hire to fill the new headquarter expansion millionaires to bail out the California budget if FB stock is worthless? GOD THINK OF THE STARVING GHETTO CHILDREN IF WELFARE IS CUT!!!

We need to make a children's fund commerical to support Facefuck stock. JUST THINK WHAT A $100 HANDLE OF FUCKERBOOK CAN DO FOR THE CHILDREN. EVERY NEW MILLIONAIRE MADE FROM DOING NOTHING OTHER THAN BEING LUCKY ENOUGH TO WORK FOR STALKERBOOK GRANTS CALIFORNIA POTENTIAL MILLIONS IN TAX REVENUE TO HELP SAVE OUR SOCIAL PROGRAMS.

I don't think 99.9% of Fuckerberg's employees do anything that can be considered work on any given day. They are essentialy given a paycheck to waste space and they don't know any better. They have been conditioned to believe by their worthless college education that sitting in a room discussing things for 40 hours a week is a real job worth 100 times more than true productive labor.

I was at Amazon headquarters visiting my friend one time. I saw hundreds of people claming to work but I couldn't figure out what they actually did. I asked my friend what he actually did for his $100k a year salary. Since we were friends he said, "I do jack shit. Some guy told our corporate heads that they needed UX designers. I do about ten ninutes of work to make a report on how our website can be improved and they read it and say good job. I get a check for $8,000 a month. Sweet huh." I politely say Fuck You and he laughs.

As an Ivy League graduate I take offense to this.

Cramer said to buy Facebook.

Anyone know what Leonard the wonder monkey recommended..??

In Cramer voice:

"Facebook may be down but it's not out. A company with nearly a billion users to draw revenue from has endless upside potential. If Google can build a phone, Mark Zuckerberg can. Flush wth cash post IPO just a few strategic buys are all Facebook needs to get back in this ballgame. It's just the bottom of the first inning and Zuckerberg hasn't even been up to bat. This clutch hitter is itching to send the ball outta the park. We've seen this before but look at other IPOs that floundered, yet have now made their shareholders rich. You don't buy a stock like Facebook to make a quick buck. You buy it to hold for the long haul. A few years from now when Facebook has grown its revenue stream and far surpassed the IPO earnings expectations, people who said not to buy the stock at $25 will look like fools. Investing isn't for the faint hearted. If it were easy you wouldn't need me and everyone would be rich. So I like Facebook and so should you."

CAN I HAVE A JOB CNBC?

Hahhahahahah, Cramer. sigh

If they do design a phone (PhaceFone?), maybe they could have some kind of fancy technical app-feature that would make it possible to establish voice communications with another Facebook user.

Um yeah.  HYOOOGE.

i am in shock and awe of the stupidity abyss of the 'merican publik.

The era of zombies...

I formally dub this time "the era of zombies" 1991 - XXXX

it all started with the bush sr. "new world order speech"

the NWO is Ultrarich > sheeple > zombies  (other groups are SOL and caught somewhere in the mix getting raped by rich old guys OR faces eaten by zombies as the sheeple baah in their cubicles.

Whew!  It is a good thing that this IPO was delayed since MillionDollarBonus has not finished Dollar Cost Averaging FB to zero.  This will give him hope for the future.  Another great opportunity awaits.

At 100 to 1 PE, I keep wondering whether this was an IPO or an IQ test. If this were latter, I tend to think I passed.

If you adjust the IQ results of today to the standards of the test 50 years ago you find the average IQ of a person today would have been considered retarded 50 years ago.

Granted, I do not deny that the threshold for passing this test could have been set rather low - say, at 38

After today's closing price, if I am not mistaken, anybody who bought FB on margin, will be receiving a margin call.

Quoting Ann Barnhardt: "...the adolescent narcissism and self-absorption of Facebook. Dude, that's our culture in a nutshell: a society of people stunted into a perpetual adolescence, with its attendant ignorance, sense of entitlement, sense of invincibility and lack of fully-realized masculinity - manifested in cowardice. Facebook is a self-feeding derivative of that childishness. "

MARKET NOT RIGGED ENOUGH

can we please get an ETF, TICKER MDB, so we can instantly be 10x long everything MDB says he's long?

And make sure there's an options chain for it?
