  • Facebook Stock Price

  • NYSE: FB vs. Nasdaq: FB, And the Other Big Facebook IPO Questions Investors were on high alert today (Wednesday) for a Facebook IPO, which has rumored to reserve both NYSE: FB and Nasdaq: FB as possible ticker symbols.

    A New York Post article reported the two listing companies were in "hot debate" for Facebook.

    "Facebook won't significantly change the listing revenues for these companies but there could be a real halo effect wherein other companies decided to list with whichever wins Facebook," Larry Tabb, founder of capital markets advisory firm Tabb Group, told The Post.

    Besides the ticker, the biggest questions on investors' minds include:

    How much does Facebook want to raise? The latest rumors say the filing will set a preliminary goal of $5 billion, which can be raised if enough investor interest is shown.

  • Facebook IPO: Where's the Love, Mark Zuckerberg? The long-awaited Facebook IPO is finally arriving - and it's time for Mark Zuckerberg to share the love.

    But most of Facebook's 800 million users won't get a chance to grab a piece of the multibillion-dollar deal.

    Instead, the shares will be reserved for the wealthiest investors, not the loyal users who have fueled Zuckerberg's rise to riches.

    Before Facebook, Zuckererg was just a college student....

    Today, Zuckerberg's net worth is $17.5 billion and he's ranked No. 52 on the Forbes list of billionaires - No. 22 in the United States - and No. 9 on the Forbes list of powerful people.

    "Zuckerberg made history with Facebook - and now he's the king of social media and social networking - the man with the Midas touch," said Money Morning Capital Waves Strategist Shah Gilani. "But now it's time for him to give some of the gold that he's earned as the head of Facebook back to the people who helped make that happen. They're the ones who have brought his company to the forefront. They're the ones who should be participating in this."

    So, how could Zuckerberg use the Facebook IPO to give back to those who've helped him become an Internet legend?

    Gilani has a plan for that...

  • Before You Get Excited About the Facebook IPO… For more than a year there has been rampant speculation about a Facebook IPO, and now it finally appears as though one is on the way.

    The social media giant could file papers for an initial public offering as soon as Wednesday, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal. The company is looking at a deal that would value the social media giant between $75 billion and $100 billion, the WSJ reported, making it one of the biggest in U.S. history.

    Scott Sweet of IPO Boutique told MarketWatch a Facebook IPO will likely lead to "pandemonium."

    "It's absolutely massive," Sweet said in an interview. "The mere drop of a hint will cause pandemonium."

    Facebook is looking to raise as much as $10 billion, which would make it the fourth-largest U.S. IPO behind Visa Inc. (NYSE: V), General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM), and AT&T Wireless. A $100 billion valuation would make Facebook worth as much as global powerhouse McDonald's Corp. (NYSE: MCD).
