TeenBook: FB Drops Under $20 For First Time Ever

Tyler Durden's picture


"Surely not" screams California's Comptroller. "Surely, Yes" sneers Knight Capital's self-aware destructo-capital algo. Faceberg just broke a monumental barrier, trading back into the teens for the first time - somewhere the Winkelvi are bathing in a salty pool of Schadenfreude.

Shows ya what can happen when the main driving force of a business is ego rather than a profit model.

 Right now in the California Governor's restroom.........................

"Jerry, about the bullet train.   Facebook is taking it in the shorts as you well know."

"I'm well aware of that.   We'll just build it to whatever point we run out of cash."

"Ok, but that's not gonna take it very far."

"I think halfway to Bakersfield is still going pretty far."

It would appear that Governor Moonbeam's state fiscal condition is riding on little but a wing and a prayer. Indeed, he has nothing more to ride, until "magic" bullet train service to the Romaine lettuce fields of Bakersfield is inaugurated.

Facebook's new muppet pitch: 

"We realized you loved us at $42, so here's why you should love us even more in the tweens, and lower still.


Folks, let's discuss cost averaging..."


Facebook = an already dying business model in terms of being able to effectively monetize any activity of its users, who not only tune out advertising on facebook, but are beginning to shun facebook as a social network platform altogether (for a variety of deeply entrenched and deeply trending reasons).

Poor California. They bet the ability to make this year's state employee payroll on facebook @ $35+.

Zuckerberg: Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard

Zuckerberg: Just ask.

Zuckerberg: I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS

[Redacted Friend's Name]: What? How'd you manage that one?

Zuckerberg: People just submitted it.

Zuckerberg: I don't know why.

Zuckerberg: They "trust me"

Zuckerberg: Dumb fucks

My prediction...when faceplant is selling for 24 cents a share the Winklevoss twins will buy the company using their settlement money and then demote Suckerberg to janitor

That would be funny. I'm betting the CIA will take it back to private first, though. I'm sure they've got some spending money laying around somewhere.

Hahahaha, with a 41% decrease in GM earnings, I wonder where the $600 million they pledged will come from?.

ObaMao's investment of our tax dollars isn't paying off.

Business (attach scare quotes if you like) overwhelmed by shifting models -> YHOO's muddled portal / mail / search (or whatever they were trying to be) eaten by GOOG : FB's fustian social model by mobile, etc.  

Zuckerbook will eke it out as a low billion dollar company.

Rumor has it that The Hon. Jon S. Corzine is preparing a bid to buy PFG & Knight Capital (once it files for BK and discharges creditor claims) out post-Bankruptcy proceedings, and then combine them into an entity that will petition for and receive primary dealer status from the NYFRB.



Former United States Senator (D-NJ), Former Governor of New Jersey, Former CEO of Goldman Sachs, Former CEO of MF Global (a former Primary Dealer), and prominent Obama Bundler.

reposting for lols:


Meanwhile Theophilus Hodges, a 36-year-old property manager, stopped into an E*Trade branch in downtown Chicago on Friday morning specifically to open an account to buy Facebook shares, he said.

"If it wasn't for Facebook I wouldn't be here," he said as he left the branch to go to his bank and transfer money into his new account. "I missed out on Groupon when it went public, so I'm not going to miss the boat this time."

Mr. Hodges said he plans to invest $10,000 in Facebook shares—including $4,500 of his own money and $5,500 from his mother.

Mr. Hodges expressed confidence in Mark Zuckerberg as Facebook's CEO and said he isn't worried about Mr. Zuckerberg being young. "To me, he's a genius. You know, he created something for the whole world... Everything is social now. The world is a different place with Facebook," he said.

Too bad it never ocurred to Mr. Hodges that he knew *nothing* about this that everyone else did not also know. 

Yet, he was somehow convinced that it was going to rocket upward in price.  On what basis?  Great value that no one else had seen?  Determined how?

The fact that I remember that exact passage tells me that I haven't been drinking as heavily as I thought I have been. 

Reading zerohedge definitely has increased my alcohol intake. 


It's funny how he say's he "missed out on groupon."  When facebook IPO'ed, groupon had already lost over 50% of its initial listing price.  You can't get any dumber than this guy...
