Overpriced and undervalued.

See what happened to Zynga and Groupon to know what will happen here.

I see the price going to $50 short term and then tanking to $20 or so, a far cry from the $38 launch.
 
Did you mean overvalued?

If so, I would agree that it's overpriced and that the company's worth is over valued too.

True internet businesses, which technically do not have a standard brick and mortar "product" and costs where the value of the firm is relatively easier to calculate. In an Internet entity, true value is all in the "idea" and it's really a perception on how solid the "idea" is.
FB is making a punt on the portion of the idea is worth 16B.

I personally feel the value will be closer home, when FB actually start to make a product, like a la apple and consummates the marriage between silicon valley and main street, so to speak.

Overpriced and undervalued.

Fully agree if undervalued = overvalued :)
Even $20 per action seems a bit high regarding the revenue and the lack of diversification.

COuldn't care less either way. I'm not the biggest fan of Zuckerberg....the guy is greedy and you can tell that by how he treated early investors/partners. He wil not be getting my money. Apparently half of americans think FB is a passing fad and it probably is. They will keep buying up smaller companies to keep growth. FB IPO doesn't mean that much....state of US economy is everything.

Facebook IPO was most anticipated and eagerly awaited but in hindsight somehow it did not see a great upswing.
There were some technical glitches to begin with. Then investor sued Facebook and the i-banker ....seems some outlook was selectively disclosed.

Then people complaining that Zuckerberg was not visible to directly address all these things (he got married the next day of the IPO.)

But about the pricing it seems that Facebook got more than what it could have got. Anyway, let's see - the stock market is not so easy....time will tell. Facebook at least fundamentally seems a strong company so in future maybe investors have something to cheer.
