Skip to comments.What if Facebook Traded at Apple’s Multiple? (Answer: $6.30)
Posted on 05/30/2012 5:04:58 PM PDT by jimbo123
Currently Facebook's forward P/E is around 53, but as shares of Facebook [FB 28.19 -0.65 (-2.25%) ] sink to new lows on almost a daily basis, the market is starting to question that valuation.
And that led us to wonder, where would Facebook trade if it had the same valuation as say Apple -- or as Google?
Fast breaks it down by the numbers.

I would suspect that a great deal of the purchasers of the Facebook’s IPO were Facebook subcribers...........gives you and indication of the kind of smart you’ll find on Facebook posts.
The old pump’n dump works every time!
Goldman Sachs is making out like a bandit on this deal. They screwed Zuckerberg and Morgan Stanley while making a lot of money in a short period of time.
I still do not understand the Facebook business strategy, does anyone actually click those ads?
didn’t Suckerberg make a couple of billion the first weekend?
I highly doubt that. Don’t know the statistics but I would bet over 70% are 25yr old and under
Their business strategy is collecting and selling personal information.
They are getting into facial recognition software and any pictures uploaded to their site or anywhere (public) can be tagged and put in a database.
You also can never really delete any information you post either.
Anyone want to guess the share price on say, Labor Day?
I’m guessing $9.75
We estimated this yesterday here. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2889183/posts. Post #16. Short seller rule as this roller coaster ride runs its’ course.

“Their business strategy is collecting and selling personal information.”
I truly can’t believe all the information people are freely giving up to this website - pictures, names of family members, addresses, phone numbers, birthdays, job and office locations...Hell, you might as well give them your SSN and credit card numbers! Smart thieves are mining this data every day.
If you must go there, do this:
-create a Google/Hotmail/yahoo account with NO PERSONAL INFORMATION.
-sign up for a Facebook account with equally fictitious information, using the above email address.
-post NOTHING personal.
Remember, the internet is FOREVER.
If they do (click), it’s not to buy GM cars, that much we know ! ($10 mill down the hole to pay for the ads, GM says, and $30 mill for their content!)
Dude, as someone else has observed, Google knows as much about you as Fakebook.
“Dude, as someone else has observed, Google knows as much about you as Fakebook.”
Yes! And my email address on Google is a derivative of mkleesma, which, by the way is also a completely fictitious name.
So, they know they have a fictitious user, somewhere in New England, who goes to Free Republic, likes sports, and watches Monty Python and 80’s music videos on Youtube.
I’ll give them that.
Beware the IP address, it can also give you away.
But they already spent it...
