Facebook IPO News February 2012
Last week, in February 2012, Facebook filed for their initial public offering of stock. In this podcast, we discuss some of the basics of all IPO’s (Initial Public Offerings), along with other stock market comments, and some of the merits of Facebook which are known at this point in time (February 2012). We do not have all of the information disseminated yet from Facebook at this time.
Any offering of shares can be made by prospectus only.
However, every investment adviser is likely to get calls from clients and prospective clients about Facebook. Their offering will be historic in several ways. Like many famous initial public offerings, shares may be very hard to come by.
But keep this in mind — after the offering, Facebook will be one of the largest publicly traded internet and technology companies. Which means Facebook will probably be attractive to exchange traded funds and mutual funds which invest in technology and the internet.
We have to say “probably” in this blog post and podcast, because we have no guarantee anyone will buy their shares or even if the initial public offering gets completed. It’s also a bad idea to speculate about the future, period! But the media will have a field day with any news regarding a Facebook IPO.

I would also add the following: Past performance may not be indicative of future results. Therefore, no current or prospective client should assume that the future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy will be profitable or equal to past performance levels.
All investment strategies have the potential for profit or loss. Changes in investment strategies, contributions, or withdrawals may materially alter the performance of your portfolio. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment will either be suitable or profitable for an investor’s portfolio.
