    Wow, what’s going on with Facebook? I bought lightly on the opening IPO and lost my shorts but when it dropped to 18 dollars I bought a crap-load and it's now over 50. I had requested an auto-sell at 50 but pulled it last week. I’m not sure how much longer to ride this out?

    Also thinking about jumping hard on Twitter but will probably stay away from the IPO. I don’t see how Twitter will generate income but Facebook didn’t make sense either ………. Go figure, it’s a strange world we live in.

        Let me ask you this. How many investments in life have you said "woulda coulda shoulda".

        Shoulda sold before the clinton .com bubble burst, shoulda sold that rental before the real estate bubble popped in 2008

        Shoulda bought gold when it was $300 on ounce etc etc...

        Go with your gut pony but I'm big fan of not trying to time the highs and lows and locking in some profits never hurts! Even if FB goes up after you take profits you can buy back in on a dip, move those funds to diversify into something else etc etc

        Oh as far as FB itself. It's revolutionizing the way people communicate. It's potential is limitless....

        I'm working on a similar idea and relating it to real estate. The traditional methods to buy and sell real estate are stressful and inefficient. Look for my IPO in a couple years.

          That's why I'm fascinated with Twitter, it is also revolutionizing the way people communicate instantaneously. On the other side I don't see how Twitter will generate income unless they merge with another technology that produces income.

          I should be able to get in on the IPO but I will be limited. I don't think it will come in over valued like Facebook. Twitter will probably be another one of those "woulda coulda shoulda" stocks.

              Twitter closed at $44.90 a share, 73% above its I.P.O. price of $26. Another "woulda coulda shoulda" for me.

                A lot of new multi-millionaires over night.

                I still think it might drop under 40 in a couple of weeks and if it does I will go in large.

                  Nah, only the underwriters and company insiders could actually get it on that. The real open price (i.e. when you or I could have bought it) was $45

                        Bullet proof and idiot proof, no doubt!

                          And how surprising your only contribution to the topic is to take shots at posters. But that is the liberal norm around here, but oh, I know, as you guys claim, you just want honest debate and facts. The evidence of that is so clear in all of these threads

                            The conservative posters on this board have long since been bereft of any logic or honesty. They aren't worth much more than one liners.
