FacePlanted To New "All Time" Lows

Tyler Durden's picture


Previous lows from last week's pre-market action have just been broken as market-makers adjust to options trading on the IPO of the decade which just printed $30.10 - or all-time lows - now down 33% from its post-IPO highs. Volume is a little higher than the last couple of days but remains significantly below the first few days' exuberant exiting. Put volume is outpacing Call volume by around 1.5-to-1 with $25 strike Puts among the most active. Some lucky lottery-ticket buyer just bought 1 lot (100 shares worth) of $10 Puts maturing in two weeks.


Put-Call Ratio is around 1.5:1 and we note Puts dominating the volume chart...

How fast do people expect this stock to dive? $10 in 2 weeks seems pretty aggressive, that is a real lottery ticket there, hope s/he didn't pay too much for it.

Why would someone buy a June 16 2012 $10 put for $0.05 when a $21 put is also only $0.05? Either there are some funny bets going on, or I am really confused and don't understand what is going on.

WINNING. Options are on? I'm in. I have a strangle for intc but I'd be more than happy to sell the put side and take fb put in its place. I'm up anyhow so why not. Few things in the market are "easy money" but FB short? Oh ya, it's ON LIKE DONKEY KONG

$30 should be solid psychological support. Bought another 500 shares this morning - The value is off the charts here. This cannot last much longer. This is the social networking revolution - older people just don't get it.

Yes, old people DO get it.

Revenue. Profits. Facebook has little of either. The first quaterly profit call is going to be a dooooooozy.

FacePlant can't hide or lie anymore (much).

See, it's called V A L U A T I O N....something you young people don't "get".

Besides, I don't believe you bought 500 shares @ 31, or 30.50 or whatever.

That's north of $15,000.00

I call bullshit on you.

The thing is..why are you on here shilling the POS stock? That is the mystery.

Plus, aren't you supposed to be out, regulating the crap out of small businesses?

Oh...that's right. You "work" for the government..............

Facebook can't even claim the prize of biggest turd in the toilet bowl yet...

In 2008, Blackstone (BX) IPO'd at something like $30 and went straight down to under a $5 handle before all the money printing circus began in earnest in March '09...

Value?  There's nothing there.  They can't get anyone to click on their ads,  and most of their users have major reservations about the whole site and would jump if a better alternative became popular.  The damn thing is Myspace 2.0. 

And I'm not even getting into the technicals here - how much profit do they actually make, and what price is this stock?

Redpill. In your jesting there is truth. How many of the supposedly 900 million accounts are really active? How many are real people? How many of the cult FarceBook followers actually click on ads?

The answers to this only the insiders know...

FarceBook is a STRONG BUY at $1.70 and an epic failure at $45.00

Over the weekend a friend of mine made an interesting point.  FaceBook can be profitable if they start selling user information to corporations.  While there may be privacy issues (or not) currently, I'm sure they'll be eroded with time.  FaceBook will be like the Google on personal data.

Software is something and advertising dollars are a big deal.  Google is a good company and makes bank.  Facebook is simply overvalued, it's a good company, but is only worth $12 to $15.  So it nosediving from $38 isn't a surprise to anyone that is capable of evaluating a company.

Rick Santelli - 24/7 - sure the Rickster will eventually die of exhaustion, but their short term ratings hit would allow them to off load their crap stocks to other Zuckers


(I know that sounds evil, but does that make me a bad person or just another wall st bitch)

The weekend tech rumors were that FB are buying Opera browser and are going to make their own smartphone. You could not make it up! LOL (I've got a $13 target BEFORE they do any of that)

Edit $13 not $3 (typo)

Facebook, the contra stock. When the broad market goes up, Facebook goes down.

Meanwhile, Facebook share distributors continue their price manipulation; must hold $30, must hold $30, must hold $30. Does the SEC care? Hell, they didn’t care when it happened at $38, why should they care now?

Facebook = Fraudbook for investors. Nobody should be in this stock; not for themselves or on behalf of anybody else.

This was posted over the weekend on a trading board I frequent.  It made me sad:

"It probably won't happen but I so hope it folds! It has eaten my family like a cancer! My wife has 1000+ friends! And guess what when you have that many people in your circle someone always needs/wants/bitching about something. She at times get up with me at 5 in the morning and we do not speak until 7 ! For disclousure I have 9 friends... We are on a dead end road and wonder how many other familys are infected with this Cancer.... Just my Two Cents..."

It'll pass...just like MySpace...and for those that weren't there...just like IRC during the early  online computer game Quake-HalfLife-UnrealTournament era (for those that don't know) .

There was a flash in the pan, and then suddenly it was gone, as everyone and everything fragmented - which naturally happens in networks - both in nature and on line.

However a word of warning - when the gods wish to punish you,  they answer your prayers....and no i am not joking......Change will be required on both sides

Guys, do you have 12 to 30 year olds around you? I agree that FB was hyped to no end and that it will fall in the next few months as more and more shares become available to short it ...

But it is the way 12 to 30s communicate today. They arrange parties, chat at night, have fun, organize protest marches, etc.... Nobody has figured out yet how to monetize it well, that is certainly true... But would you bet that they won't? or that they would?

If you are in the second camp, then, you should just wait till the price is right to enter. If your value is 0$, then wait for 0$, but get in or you'll miss the bus.

All this said, I belong to the camp who thinks that the whole crony capitalistic system we currently have is not sustainable. The macroeconomy is very close to a zero sum game, so it is correct that the more young multibillonaires we have the more unemployed or underpaid people we will have, specially when the money doesn't get reinvested but used to pump the bubble we have. There is no way around that.

Until next time,

Enjoy shorting cool, and longing KEWL

And that is how you POKE back

Options trading is exerting even more pressure on the stock.  When retails buys put options to protect themselves, the institutions who write (sell) them the options have to SHORT the stock so that they do not end up holding the bag on those options.  So more people buying put options means more selling (or short selling) of the stock.
