I have a 3X5 card on my wall with my estimate of value for FB stock the day it went public.

It says $8-$12

Stocks virtually enable a company to print money. It's all a confidence game; has this company proven that it can make money? On the other hand, if you do have confidence in Facebook's ability to do that, buy their stock now when it's low. Unfortunately, Facebook doesn't have Google's built-in ability to make money (by selling search placement in the search engine, etc.). On the downside another, more attractive "Facebook" may come along and displace it.

I want to thank the person who had me short the stock and tell me to maintain my position.
