    Funny, nobody wants to say anything. The one thing about FB that has not been analyzed is the importance of short sellers who are moving the stock all over the map intentionally as they get people to sell so they can keep it moving lower and buy up shares at basement lows. This is going on even as corporate interests are watching carefully for a buy in point where they can gain a large interest in the company in case it becomes vastly more important in the next year or two. And let's not underestimate the monied interests around the corporation who are trying to do with FB shares what they've done with other shares, keep them moving, and keep making profits on the volatility. I'd say if you are smart and can move quickly, buy some lower than 20.00 and hold on for a while. Lots of people are still trying to make their money back, and we all know how that goes.
