Good time to Short FB.....??

  1. Facebook will be allowing a first series of lockout regulations for thier employees to sell thier options. This meaning that there are a possible 250 million additional shares that can be dumped on the open market. I am no expert and have only been investing for under 6 months but i think that FB will be a short for sure.
    Looking at the comps like linkedin and groupon when they went through this thier stocls went down considerable as well.

    Anyone have any thoughts??
  2. It seems like a trap short. The lockup expiration may already be priced in. No offense to you, but when a newbie is interested in shorting a stock that has dropped 50% I get skeptical. I may be dead wrong, but I figured I'd play devil's advocate.
  3. At the moment, I'm reasonably certain of two things:

    1) FB will be < $10 before the end of the year.

    2) It'll hit $30 first.
