|Facebook Stock Price Watch|
This stock looks like it'll be fluid for a while.
Facebook stock price watch [news.cnet.com]
|Facebook's stock hit a new low as reality sinks in for the social-networking titan. |
Shares opened down 6.6 percent to $31.78 today. It then slipped further to $31.59.
After going public in one of the largest initial public offerings ever, Facebook's stock has seen nothing but trouble. After facing glitches in its first day of trading that halted any potential momentum it had going, shares fell 11 percent on its second day of trading yesterday.
The sentiment this morning wasn't good; shares had already indicated lower before the market opened.
|Despite a massive user base of nearly 1 billion people, many consider its $100 billion value to be too high. |
Ya think!? What, let me get my crystal ball...
Tuesday 29 May Facebook Shares Dip Below $30 [guardian.co.uk]
|Facebook's shares dipped below $30 Tuesday as the company's shares hit new lows and continued to struggle in the wake of its massive initial public offering (IPO). |
Even as US stock markets bounced back from falls last week, Facebook's shares slumped over 6% in early trading, to $29.78 – more than $8 below the $38 price set at their IPO earlier this month.

Bouncing just barely off of $28 now. I would expect it to end up by end of year in the $15 range.
I'd expect fund managers to start buying again at ... my guess 24.50 or lower, and longer term probably end up at $19.50, which it may be worth.
Time for Facebook to think about dividend policy to keep investors quiet. Haven't seen any details on that.

11:52am ET .... 27.39 +1.08 (4.10%)
12:00pm ET .... 27.30 +0.99 (3.76%)
12:05pm ET .... 27.21 +0.90 (3.42%)
Overall low volume, but lots of trading between 11:45am and noon. Looks like a small rally mid-morning, with day traders taking profits before lunch. Nice avg. 4% profit (less fees) for a morning's work!
...will have to see how it closes at 4:00pm.
I'm surprised how much it fluctuates.
...here's the closing price:
Fri, Jun 8, 2012, (4:00pm ET)
Nasdaq:FB 27.10 +0.79 (3.00%)
Market cap: $57.94B
Mon, Jun 11, 2012, (4:00pm ET)
Nasdaq:FB $27.00 -0.10 (0.35%)
...lost a dime a share.

Nasdaq:FB $27.40 +0.40 (1.46%)
Market cap: $58.58B
Thursday, Jun 14, 2012, (4:00pm ET)
Nasdaq:FB $28.29 +1.02 (3.74%)
The so-called "$100B IPO" creeps back up with Market Capitalization now at: $60.49B
looks like a share price support operation, illegal in the UK
Friday, Jun 15, 2012, (4:00pm ET)
Nasdaq:FB $30.01 +1.72 (6.09%)
...added almost $4B back to the market cap, (now at $64.17B).
My guess is the entire gain will get wiped out by Thursday 6/21/12 and the price will drop back to the $26-$28 range.

I was wrong -- FB is up almost $2.00 over last week.
Thanks for keeping us updated, lexipixel

...by 6:30pm ET, in after-hours trading the stock tumbles another -10%, down to $24.05 after FB's first quarterly report as a public company shows $157 million dollar loss due to expenses related to compensating employee with IPO stock, (see: [webmasterworld.com...] )
Friday, July 27, 2012, (4:00pm ET)
The stock lost another $3.14 today, (-11.7% of it's value)... and after hours continued its decline.
Market capitalization is $50.68B --- approx 1/2 of what people called the "$100 Billion IPO".
I thought that Russian who bought into Facebook 2 years ago was mad.
And I also think that people who bought shares in the IPO paid far too much for a site that is very popular, but that costs a LOT to run, staff and servers etc, and has not yet really grasped how to monetize their users, who are increasingly on mobile smart phones.
But I did like their ads but they are too dear for me and they made them smaller.
955 million active users and rising.

Shares fall below $20
The Russian wasn't mad, Facebook's data is very very valuable, but Facebook never thought of another way to use it than charging highly for ads to display, and allowing fake accounts and bots to burn advertisers clicks and money..maybe because they ( Mark and "the insiders" ) were never really interested in the long term business model ..just hyping the figures, hyping the stock ( pre IPO ) running away with the IPO day money..
I think Mark only kept "control" in case someone came/ comes to him with a way to convert that detailed profile data that "the users" would accept..
As a short term "pump and dump" plan it has worked, but it has been a terrible waste, so far of very good data..
Mobile use doesn't suit the way the ads are displayed, the ads are too expensive, the "fraud control" on the PPC and the PPL is laughable, if not actually deliberately fraudulent ..
The constant re-jigging of "the privacy controls" to make more data public got up everyone's noses, especially the legislators in the EU..
By the time they work out how to use the data they have and give an honest deal to their advertisers and users ..the next fad will have left them behind..
|955 million active users and rising. |
what part of "fake" as in, "fake, accounts, numbers, users, bots, share price valuation figures" is it that you are not getting ?..
Facebooks own figures about anything to do with them, including membership numbers and growth in members are as fake as the accounts , the likes and the IPO valuation..even a large part of the profile data is fake, the waste is the part of the profile data that is not fake, and the tracking that Facebook has been doing on the real accounts..
Zynga are also in serious trouble over their fake figures and their IPO and shares..
I don't think anyone is going to buy any FB stock in any quantity until the lockup period is over. The market will be flooded with more shares and drive down the price of all of them.
Well, MST might buy them to add to their money losing Innernets operations if FB gets cheap enough.
Friday, August 17, 2012, (after hours)
...shares closed at 4:00pm, EST yesterday, Thurs., Aug. 16, 2012 at $19.87, and regained $0.01 overnight -- still leaving the stock below the "not so magic" price of $20.00 (US).
Market capitalization for the "$100 Billion IPO" company is now at $42.57B
The Times in London proclaims: "Zuckerberg down to his last $10bn as shares drop"...
But CNN Money reports the real reason "value" is leaving the company...
Facebook stock slides 6% as insiders get chance to sell
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Facebook's life as a public company has been a nightmare from day one, and the pain continued on Thursday as some company insiders got their first chance to dump shares.
Facebook stock hit a new intra-day low of $19.69 Thursday morning, and ended the day 6.3% lower at $19.87.
(NOTE: previous post was done late at night / early a.m. before market for Friday)
Friday, August 17, 2012 (4:00PM EST)
Nasdaq:FB $19.05 -0.82(-4.13%)
The stock opened at its daily high, ($20.08), went as low as $19.00 during the day, and closed off more than 4% at $19.05
Market Capitalization is now at a record low, (since the IPO), of only $40.81 Billion.
But they still have 800 million users.
And I would say that most young people spend more of their time on Facebook than Google and ebay combined.
But these new companies need to work out their monetizing before they start.
Eg Facebook, Pinterest, Waneloo, Twitter.
No more of this start and hope!
