It’s all about the Facebook IPO today. Everyone’s going a little crazy for it. The Facebook IPO has been anticipated for months now. I know some folks who are investing in the IPO (I’m not), but not using it as a buy and hold. Indeed, I’ve heard from several people that it’s more about buying some shares now, and then turning around and selling them in a couple of weeks. Some expect the price to go a little higher for now — but then drop later. No one I know expects to use Facebook as a long-term investment. (Shameless plug: Read my overview of IPOs.)
