61% Increase in Revenue Drives Facebook Past IBM in Valuation

24 Jul 2014 @ 18:08
Just one look at the chart and you will see why all the ballyhoo about the botched Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) IPO was really “Much Ado About Nothing.” As of this very moment, Facebook’s share price of $76.37 is almost exactly double its IPO share price of $38.23 on 28 May 2012 and more than quadruple it post-IPO share price of $18.06 on 27 August 2012.

Several decades ago I was having a business dinner with a number of associates in Toronto at an upscale Vietnamese restaurant. The...

Traders are exhibiting the emotional traits that typically precede the bubble bursting. It’s a blend of giddiness and fear and the anxiety that comes with knowing that one must act quickly before the inevitable happens. Despite...

Mattel (NASDAQ:MAT) is the biggest toy manufacturer in the world. Perhaps I should clarify. Mattel doesn’t build the biggest toys in the world; it is the biggest manufacturer of toys in the world with a market cap of $12.31 billion, annual sales of $7.1 billion, and 28,000 employees. In the mid to late 1990s, Mattel was one of the darlings of American investors, especially because of its...
