    Forbes Continues To Insult, Slander Prince Alwaleed

    In spite of (or because of?) his protestations last year, Forbes continues to insist that His Royal Highness is worth 50% less than the prince insists he is, thereby denying him his rightful place alongside (and preferably ahead of) Mark Zuckerberg (#21 with $28.5 billion). Instead, Alwaleed (#30 with $20.4 billion) has again been put […]

    Facebook’s Plummeting Stock Price Has Forced Mark Zuckerberg To Show Human Emotion Toward Shareholding-Employees

    Mr. Zuckerberg went on to tell employees that the press doesn’t know the company’s future plans, and if they did, they would have the same faith in Facebook’s ability to fulfill its lofty stock-market valuation. He said that investments the company has made over the last six to 12 months will soon bear fruit, the […]

    Morgan Stanley’s Lead Tech Banker Put A Now-Awkward Clause In His Facebook IPO Contract

    In snaring the most coveted investment-banking assignment of the year, Morgan Stanley’s Michael Grimes insisted to a senior Facebook executive that he be the “single driver” of the company’s initial public offering, adding that if the deal soured, it would be his “throat to choke. [WSJ]

    Facebook Is Number 1 (Among Short-Sellers)

    No large U.S. company is attracting more attention from short sellers than Facebook, amid bets the world’s biggest social-networking company will keep falling after losing $27 billion since its initial public offering. Short interest on the Menlo Park, California-based company reached 5.9 percent of shares outstanding, according to data compiled by Bloomberg and Data Explorers […]

    So Things Hit A Rough Patch And Facebook Is Ready To Throw In The Towel?

    Is that how it is?

    NYSE Euronext and Facebook have exchanged phone calls and e-mails about the possibility of the company switching its listing from Nasdaq OMX Group, according to a person familiar with the matter. Facebook, which listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market on May 18 after completing the world’s biggest initial public offering by a technology company, is listening to the New York Stock Exchange, said the person, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private.

    What If Mark Zuckerberg Wore A 3-Piece Suit And A Monocle To The Facebook Roadshow?

    What if Mark Zuckerberg wore cutoff jean shorts and a mesh Hawaii 69 football jersey to the Facebook roadshow?

    What if Mark Zuckerberg wore a Mr. Peanut costume to the Facebook roadshow?

    What if Mark Zuckerberg wore a tuxedo tee-shirt to the Facebook roadshow?

    What if Mark Zuckerberg dressed as Robocop for the IPO roadshow?

    What if Mark Zuckerberg wore Crocs to the Facebook roadshow?

    What if Mark Zuckerberg entered the roadshow as a member of the Lollipop Guild?

    What if Mark Zuckerberg wore Capri pants to the Facebook roadshow?

    What if Mark Zuckerberg wore a wetsuit to the Facebook roadshow?

    What if Mark Zuckerberg wore a Lacoste polo with an argyle sweater wrapped around his neck to the Facebook roadshow?

    What if Mark Zuckerberg wore the Hannibal Lechter mask from Silence of the Lambs to the Facebook roadshow?

    Would things have turned out differently? If Zuckerberg had left the hoodie at home? One guy says yes.

    “I felt that had Mr. Zuckerberg worn a jacket instead of a hoodie (showing them that he respected them enough to “dress up”), he would have made a statement to them that he cares about their needs, and will act in their best interest. He chose not to make that statement, and the current share price demonstrates that investors have chosen not to support Facebook shares. All of this is iterative. Had Facebook issued 10 million shares instead of 421 million, the stock would probably be much higher. However, had Mr. Zuckerberg worn a jacket and reassured investors that he is aligned with their expectations, perhaps more people would be stepping in to buy now.”

    So…yeah.

    Facebook Attracting Children, Retirees, Not Advertisers

    A wonderful thing about the Facebook IPO is that there is a proliferation of imaginary markets in which to … well, not trade it exactly, but say what you would be doing if you could trade it, which is almost as good. Here is the Wall Street Journal’s imaginary market, with a “Current Price Prediction” […]

Those contracts were so boring and bog-standard that … well, this: SharesPost Financial Corporation completed its auction of 150,000 shares of the Class B Common Stock of Facebook, Inc. on February 8, 2012. A clearing price of $44.00 […]
