    Yes, but people are saying it's because he didn't want to pay US taxes once the IPO takes off.

    The libs are really vilifying him for that, he is supposed to just hand his money over so they can redistribute it to their supporters.
    How is obama working out for you?

    Trust me, they are going to need to really, really prosper just to justify their current price when they have really, really prospered.

    Co..........Market Cap
    Boeing: $51.80 billion
    Disney: $78.30 billion
    Facebook: $104.63 billion
    Intel: $131.16 billion
    Google: $195.73 billion
    GE: $200.63 billion
    Walmart: $212.55 billiion
    IBM: $225.94 billion
    Microsoft: $245.89 billion
    Apple: $495.94 billion

    If you can look at that tiny sample and not see the problem, then I wish you good luck. Really.

    I understand that you wouldn't buy the stock. Let's talk about this in a year and one of us can say "I told you so" to the other.

    Fair enough, but we might be talking sooner than that.

    That's not very convenient, is it?

    HG, it just sounds like you're dabbling and there's nothing wrong with that. It's not an all eggs in the basket type thing.

    I don't like FB at this price (90 times earnings or something like that, yikes) but I'm not lighting cigars with $100 dollar bills either so go figure.

    Good luck.
    Be Not Afraid.
