+ Watch FB
on My Watchlist
FB is going to grow like a mastered. With in few months it is going to sky rocket. My reasoning: this company got a lot of talent, if you are following FB is rolling every stone it could and they are doing it wisely.so I can see that with in three months or so it is going to secure 47.74 and in one year 107.
Continued momentum in social networking space
I don't see a way to justify the current $100+ billion valuation for this stock. Even based on the current projected earnings thru 2016, which seem rather optimistic. Just look at how this played out after 1999 tech bubble. Eventually, the P/E contraction overcomes the growth rate.
Thumbs down again on this one. Continued reasoning is, I just don't see the continued growth here. Younger kids are going to find a new vehicle to share information, and Facebook will soon be relegated to AOL status.
news that Facebook *patented* handing over users' data to the NSA more easily
Postcards were replaced by phone calls, phone calls were replaced by emails, emails were replaced by Instant Messenger,but Facebook is replacing all of them and offering more, on demand.
I am not a Facebook member. My sons are and use it well to keep in contact with many friends. One son has used it quite effectively to hook up friends with jobs. I believe they will use FB for many years to come. I am not worried about the fact that teens are not joining in great numbers. My sons used it more after they left high school. Zuckerberg appears to be incredibly smart , creative, and protective of FB user experience. A good combination to keep and expand the user base. Taking his time to create the "right" kind of advertising experience for the users will pay-off in the long run. He keeps the users happy .... the ad revenues will come and will be commensurate with reaching a billion people with ads relevant to their lives. This is definitely a long term investment. I also firmly believe Zuckerberg and his crew are committed to creating many new ways to connect; resulting in higher user numbers as well as better value for users (and advertisers). Potential Problems: I don't want to see a rush to monetize the user base that will ultimately destroy the value of the FB community.
Growing business with great management, outperforming expectations when the market is in doubt. Many ways to keep growth rate. First great business that can grasp mobile usage and growth gains.
A growth stock that will continue to grow
Take some shares off the table after a very nice run going into earnings. If this stock pulls back into the high 40's could be a buying opportunity.
The monetization model isn't proven, but FB has done enough to prove it's capable of a mobile platform and able to strategically insert advertising. Market saturation? No one does it better. And if there comes a day when consumer payment is a part of every-day individual use...woah.
It is hard for me to believe that a company that is smart enough to gather over one billion users can't find a way of making some meaningful money in the years ahead. Let's see if that's true.

Online comes and goes. I remember being in a meeting with an AOL exc. stating that AOL was a lock, that they had numbers proving that the chat window was open on "millions" of computers. My comment to him was, "Yeah but no one is at the keyboard". With Facebook there is always someone there, its checked by young and old, its mobile app ubiquitous, easy to ck in easy to post, easy to track users. Instagram with adds and less than a million defections, more revenue. Its price has only run up steeply from its opening faux pas (being polite), so I like it to run to 85-125. But then again, I know about as much as anyone who thinks they know anything... "Its the market stupid"...
As the facebook addiction continues with people of all ages having their phones super glued to their hands fb will continue to grow.
It has over half of the internet as users.
It's a part of our culture. The addiction of coffee, the attraction of an iphone.
Daily and monthly usage on upswing. Huge internet presence with successful transition to mobile use. Monetizing plan is working as ad revenue especially mobile is increasing.
