    While FB has had an enormous impact on how the world connects, also responsible for changing our social views and values for better or worse, I fail to see the 104 billion worth in terms of intrinsic value in both qualitative or quantitative aspects. I wouldn’t get in until price reflects revenues and company trades at max 34 P/E or $12-15 per share price range.
    Small investors beware.

    If FB grows profits at 67%, why not allow them a 67 P/e (PEG of 1) or $20.77 per share as a fair price? I think the stock will trade between 20-30 for the year -or- it will start slowly gapping up each week and reach 100 in 60 days. The difference will be the euro issues, iran/israel conflict issues, or our own debt/economy issues to send it one way or the other, not fundamentals. Good luck trading this one.
