Facebook stock

  • NEW YORK (AP) -- It was barely a like and definitely not a love from Facebook investors as the online social networks stock failed to live up to the hype in its trading debut Friday.

  • Facebook stock closed up for the second day in a row as Facebooks underwriters continued to face heat over whether they gave an unfair advantage to preferred clients. Many average investors lost thousands of dollars betting on Facebooks IPO.

  • Ryan Cefalu, who lives with his wife and two kids in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, saw in Facebook Inc. (FB) (FB)'s much-anticipated initial public offering a chance to buffer his retirement fund.
  • (Businessweek)
  • Its easy to get sucked into a negative mindset, with troubles at Facebook and JPMorgan Chase in the headlines. The social networks botched IPO and the banks recent $2 billion trading loss hardly instill confidence in the stock market.

  • Facebook, the social media network devoted to making every part of our lives open and transparent, seems to have reserved a measure of privacy for itself.

  • Warren Buffett didnt buy Facebook (Nasdaq: FB ) , and I have a feeling that if I told him I liked the stock, he might punch me in the gut.
  • (Motley Fool)
  • Lesser, an 11-year-old investor and business prodigy, tried to buy 300 shares of Facebook stock during the company's initial public offering last week with more than $10,000 saved up from a small company he set up selling skateboards and bracelets.
  • (Time)
  • Facebooks bungled stock offering last week wont be prompting many investors to click like. The instant gains commonly enjoyed by early investors in such initial public offerings didnt materialize.
  • (Newsday)
  • Many of my clients have asked about buying Facebook stock now that its gone public. Facebook Inc. provides a compelling story - a Hollywood blockbuster movie, a tech company with spectacular growth, and 900 million users.
