    SouthAmerica: That shows that Wall Street is a FOOLS paradise, and that we still have a lot of suckers out there.

    LinkedIn goes public:

    The stock, issued at $45, went as high as $122.70 just before noon and closed at $94.25 on a trading volume of 30 million shares. All this for a company that skeptics say amounts to an online Rolodex, a place on the Internet for professionals to post resumes and connect with one another and potential employers.

    I would not be surprised to find out that "Goldman Sachs the Pillage People" made a lot of money on this latest mirage.

  2. 1) Your broker couldn't get you any shares? :(
    2) What time is it?

    a) Howdy Doody Time
    b) Hammer Time
    c) Miller Time
    d) 1:13am CST
    e) Time to short-sell EWZ

    The correct answer is (e). :D :eek: :p

    The thing about this Rolodex is that it's the biggest business Rolodex in the world.

    I've gone long starting at $95. In a year I expect +20%

    you said: “I've gone long starting at $95. In a year I expect +20%”

    All I can do is wish you good luck, and that you make some money on your risky investment.

    Ed Drossman I don't see a difference between linkedIn now and Google when it ran up to over 100 after its IPO.

    Ricardo C. Amaral The difference is that linkedIn is no Google.

    Let the initial IPO fever pass then the price of linkedIn will go down to possible even lower than the original offering price of $ 45 per share.

    Ed Drossman And I remember when Yahoo.com went public and it went all the way up to like $450 before it sank. I remember when yahoo.com went public and everyone was like this is the second and coming.

    Ricardo C. Amaral Ed, as I mentioned to you it is just a matter o time for the price of LinkedIn stock to decline and probably going below its IPO price.

    Please watch this video - And after watching this video you will understand why Google is a unique company.

    In a Nutshell: LinkedIn it doesn't belong in the same league as Google.

    SouthAmerica: Now that the gamblers of Wall Street run-up the LinkedIn IPO from the $ 45 original price to $ 123 per share – the Fools from Wall Street think that the coming “Facebook” IPO can give a market cap for that company in the range of $ 90 to $ 100 billion US dollars.

    Regarding the coming “Facebook” IPO – you can read my opinion about it here:
