Personally, I think it's way overvalued. 100 times it's yearly earnings! I don't see how Facebook can do much more to increase it's earnings, certainly not enough to merit it's valuation.

I foresee it falling hard.
It certainly does not merit such valuation. Besides the P/E ratio, I also have a hard time imagining that Facebook can grow beyond what it is now. And if it does not, its revenues will stagnate, which really counts as a failure for a tech company. Like Zynga and Groupon before it, Facebook's stock will eventually drop to where it belongs.

I find the fact that it's valued higher then Disney to be particularly absurd.

I mean Disney controls half the USA's TV and movies (through it's subsidiaries), how can Facebook be worth more then that?

I expect Facebook to lose at least half it's value. Maybe even 90% (if it's growth rates fall to those of "regular" companies).

In the past, Facebook had the benefit of the potential to grow it's user base, it can't really do that anymore...

IMO opinion Facebook will s-l-o-w-l-y start to charge for their service, they will try to hide is as an upgrade but on the long run they want people to pay for what nowadays they have for free. Which is quite logical since people are ADDICTED to facebook, they can no longer live without it.

They might start charging companies, but normal users? Not a chance. Their whole business relies on nearly everyone using them. They can't afford to have the new, still penniless generation to not get addicted.

I barely use FB as it is, if they charged for it I wouldn't even bother to look at it at all.

FB gets a cut from all the game currency doesn't it? So in a way, they are charging people already.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Facebook does not need the new generation to get addicted, nowadays facebook is on the level of drinking, smoking and all the "cool" things a teenager wants to do that only adults can, they will do whatever they can (beg their parents, get a job, steal) to get into the "cool" options in facebook.

It would be interesting to know how many of FB's users are "active", I have an account, but I rarely use it. Many of you guys seem to be similiar.

I basically keep my FB account as something akin to being listed in the telephone book. It's a way for people to find me and contact me.

In terms of regular contact, I quickly switch to email and chat.

With regards to Facebook, the price looks as though it is not going to move anymore.

And I missed the short-selling period. FML. Btw, whoever is handling their counter is a pretty smart bastard, between 12pm-3pm he/she is stop-hunting all the way.

Someone wants to treat me to dinner for that. What should I ask for?

Isn't it like this with all those hyped up IPO's?

The guys a sitting directly at the markets, with super low delay, direct access get first dibs, then they cash in on all the gullible masses that bought into the media hype.

Yeah. Watch it when those big boys selling off their stuff after 10.30am, then go off for lunch at 12pm. The fools buy back in and the short-sellers step in to earn extra cash all the way until 3pm, where the big boys came back in and dump whatever leftover shares they have.

If Goldman Sachs are the ones handling the fund, I must say that whoever the fund manager is the person is a fucking smart asshole. He knows it is May and the spirit of selling is high (sell-in-May), and any stock IPO-ing would likely be brought back to the ground no matter what because people are looking to earn quick bucks by short-selling, or the other fund managers looking to a quick beautification of their portfolios; there is no better way to earn money than through any hyped-up shit in May.
