Facebook IPO Price Clamp

    πŸ“‚ Financial     # , ,     πŸ—¨ No Comments

Seems like everything was on hold yesterday except for the Facebook stock price gyrations. In the end it eked out a measly 23 cents over its IPO price of $38 and that with some grand assistance from its underwriters and backers. That assistance was so obvious, specially towards the end of the trading session. You — Continue reading Β»

Amazon's Ridiculous P/E

Yeah I know, P/E ratio is so old school but as I read the post below I was blown away by how ridiculous Amazon's P/E ratio of 184 actually is. For a quick verification I went down a list of stocks I follow and none even came close to that figure. Even Priceline with its — Continue reading Β»

I'm not naive to the point of believing that Google is all good and no evil, but in this case I side with Google.
