Doing More With Less Since 1972

No Facebook IPO until 2012?

And that’s the early IPO date. I may be way out of touch and way off base here (that’s happened before), but does this seem like a smart idea? I mean, FB is white hot right now. Things that are white hot tend to burn out, and that happens especially fast with anything happening online.

I think if I had a stake in FB, I’d want the IPO to happen yesterday.

Interesting that they mention all the regulation like Sarbanes Oxley as being a reason to hold off. Who would’ve thought that a gov’ment regulation would have a hand in keeping the general public from making an investment in smaller increments? Thanks regulation!
