Facebook IPO: Reality Check

Action to Take --> So, after all that, what do I think of the IPO? I think it is a bad long-term investment. I think Zuckerberg wants to sell at a point when it looks like he can grow forever, even though Facebook cannot possibly sustain its rate of growth and in fact is already seeing growth wane. I will be sitting out this IPO. In future issues, I will follow these shares and assess strategies that investors can use to profit from a long-term bleed-out in Facebook's valuation.
