Fadebook Opens For Trading At $42.05 As Europe Closes

Tyler Durden's picture

From the $38 IPO price, we open at $42.05 (now at $40.1) but we note that in Germany it has tumbled from well over EUR90 earlier. We get the sense the media is disappointed, but of course they will be talking longer-term now and defending a weaker-than-expected open: CNBC: "I just want to make sure we don't whip ourselves into a frenzy on the short term value." - perhaps a little late for that eh?

 

and 5 mins later...defending $40 like crazy...
