The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics around the investing world.
Facebook's IPO process was indefensible on almost every level, so John and David don't see any point in trying to defend it. The funny thing is that the fundamentals of its business haven't changed at all, despite the drop in its share price over the past two weeks. Has the negative hype machine merely replaced the positive hype machine from earlier this year? And does that make Facebook attractive to unemotional investors? John and David consider those questions.
