5 More Stocks to 'Like' When Facebook Goes Public


When Facebook filed its original IPO form, it was highly debated which exchange it would list on, given its desire to become a blue-chip company. Would it list on the New York Stock Exchange, like a well-established company, or on the tech-heavy Nasdaq?

Shares of NASDAQ OMX Group have fallen 3.4% this year.
