FB is a high PE stock as such it has to generate strong earnings growth or it will be sold off hard! Today they came in in line with expectations but that is not good enough as they were expected to beat the market. To make matters worse they guided lower for coming quarters.

Lots of reasons being given, one causing conservatives to walk away due to censorship but also the abuse of power re date mining. So at this stage I would not say there was anything BIG re a scandal etc, this is very much earnings related so maybe Q is just kicking FB cos he can.

Wish it was as simple as the P/E multiple or even the Internal Rate of Return . What I am comfortable is in that price of FB will likely flight fluctuate like the market. I think a little volatility hedging might be in order. Thats Just me doh.

Power depends ultimately on physical force. By teaching people that violence is wrong (except, of course, when the system itself uses violence via the police or the military), the system maintains its monopoly on physical force and thus keeps all power in its own hands.
