Comments on: Wall Street needs to shed Facebook’s shroud http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2012/05/30/wall-street-facebook/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: WeWereWallSt http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2012/05/30/wall-street-facebook/#comment-396577 Sat, 02 Jun 2012 12:13:09 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=34900#comment-396577 “While we’re at it – go public, Zuckerberg.”

Zuckerberg’s already “public,” and the evidence isn’t encouraging. Like FDR said once, “You have heard the evidence. You have also listened to a brilliant orator. If you believe him, and disbelieve the evidence, you will decide in his favor. That’s all I have to say.”

We don’t need to hear from Zuckerberg. He hasn’t matured, like the euphemists like to say. He’s simply learned how to better mask who he is. There’s a trail of aggrieved people in his wake. He’s now expanded that to include the retail investing public.

By the way. FB has lost about $33,000 per second since it went public. A fun fact for the next neighborhood investors’ club meeting.

Imagine if on the day of the IPO FB announced the purchase/takeover of RIMM and NOKIA. How much would the share be worth if that sort of tactic was used and action was taken? I am sure we would be talking about FB in the $80 with also a minicollapse in GOOG and AAPL shares. I advice small businesses and for what suppose to be one of the future biggest company to handle their IPO with such an incompetence is unbelievable and honestly is an indicator of a demise of FB. This is a ruthless era and such a foolish mistakes are (and will) be punished. FB is building its own Smartphone! as if Apple and Android would wait for them to do so. My guess by the time FB releases their phone, the share would be in the junk territory joining Nokia and RIM. Sell FB if you made the mistake of buying it and pick a trusted stock like Apple or Amazon with a proven track record of strategic and tactical know how and not an armature, over hyped and over valued company run by few idiots and greedy manipulators

Why should a smart, now billionaire bright-eyed little spoiled kid like Zuckerberg give a hoot about Wall Street?

It would seem like the right thing to do, in view of the ‘surprisingly’ low price the stock is traded for these days, wouldn’t it?

Another, more important question: How many actual people really use FB on a regular, or otherwise substantial basis? And please, don’t give me the “facebook has a billion users” answer, because anyone can create as many fb user identities as they want, and no one can delete such a user identity once its there.
