The Wall Street journal is now looking for heads to roll at Morgan Stanley and calling the IPO "a flop"

Funny how a few days of trading can change everything.

      Zuckerberg is now the reining King of the worst IPO flop in Wall Street history.

      I don't think Zuckerberg had much economic common sense, prior to his going public with this IPO.

       

      To turn things around, would require a major shakeup in the mindset at Facebook. I do not plan on purchasing shares from them anytime soon.

            OH, Morgan is being quoted as saying: serious technical problems at Nasdaq are the cause.

            That is the most laughable financial news Ive heard in a while. So laughable Nasdaq did not even comment on the statements made by Morgan.

                    Morgan Stanley will be "taught a lesson" for not kicking in to somebody's campaign.

                    If it was Goldman or JP or any of the others, nothing would have even been said.

                      its only been a week...or three days i think...is it possible it could turn around? 

                      I mean my farm is doing real well!!

                        lol gonna be interesting which poor suckers are gonna get blamed for this one

                        its also gonna be interesting to see what new legislation is going to be drawn for even MORE regulation...

                        I think at some point...you have to realize...that more legislation is not gonna work...all it does is make jobs for lawyers.

                        If big banks always seem to get a free pass, then why should they care or worry about any legislation whatsoever?

                          On the contrary, Z-berg made a lot of $ and still owns enough stock that he can wait out any outcome.

                           

                          the following is the first prediction i've ever made on LP

                           I predict this thread will be locked on monday.

                           now if could just predict #s i'd be in good shape.
