5 More Stocks to 'Like' When Facebook Goes Public

Stocks in this article: DFTAMTMSNDAQGOOG

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Facebook (FB) is set to go public tomorrow with a feeding frenzy that's captured the attention of Wall Street and Main Street as no other company has.

With 901 million monthly users, 125 billion friendships, and 3.2 billion "likes" and comments a day, Facebook's numbers are staggering.

These are just a few of the reasons why Facebook is going to be the largest tech IPO in history.

TheStreet reviewed 10 companies that may benefit from ties to the social networking giant, including those from the technology and financial-services sectors as well as China, a market Facebook currently doesn't have access to.

Here are five more stocks that may benefit from Facebook's IPO.

1. DuPont Fabros Technology

DuPont Fabros Technology (DFT) is another real estate investment trust (REIT) that houses data center facilities across the United States. DuPont Fabros is similar to Equinix (EQIX) and Digital Realty Trust (DLR), in that they all count Facebook among their customers.

DuPont Fabros recently raised full-year guidance and boosted its dividend, as demand for data centers strengthened. Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Sri Nagarajan reiterated his "buy" rating and raised his price target slightly to $29.50 from $29, citing "future core earnings growth through leasing."

For 2012, the REIT expects funds from operations to be between $1.44 and $1.54 per share, up from its previous guidance of $1.31 to $1.51. The quarterly dividend was raised 25% to 15 cents per share. Shares of DuPont Fabros Technology have gained 9.5% this year.
