Should You Be Licking Your Chops Over Facebook’s IPO?

Mr. Mark Tier asks the question: "Should You Be Licking Your Chops Over Facebook’s IPO?"

Onebornfree commentary: I confess, I'm a new fan of Mr Tier after reading an interview of him conducted by the Daily Bell.

My own personal spin on Mr Tier's question [he makes some very interesting points/observations, well worth a close look and considerable thought; his answers to that question throw considerable doubt on the prevailing assumption that putting money into the coming Facebook initial public offering {I.P.O.}, would be a "sound investment"], is that whether you believe Mr Tier's personal assessment of the Facebook I.P.O., or you perhaps believe another advisors positive outlook for such a move, whatever you do, be sure to "invest" only money that you can honestly afford to lose [and I mean all of it!].

And of course, if you don't have any money that you can afford to lose don't "go long" or "short" on Facebook shares [or on anything else for that matter!]

Never use money that you cannot afford to lose on these types of speculations. Money you cannot afford to lose [i.e retirement savings etc.] should be kept in a long term savings plan similar to the one used to produce the results seen here.



Mark Tier article excerpt: " Facebook is this season’s "hot stock."
Any broker lucky enough to have some 
to sell will tell you that.
 But...should you listen?"

"My friend Raymond loves Facebook—and he doesn’t even have an account.
But his wife does."

“Before Facebook,” Raymond says, “my wife went to the mall every day with my credit card. Now, she stays home and plays Farmville.”

This, in a nutshell, is Facebook’s business problem: it’s free (“and always will be”). You can spend 24 hours a day on Facebook without contributing a penny to Facebook’s bottom line—and lots of people do. (In truth, you’re part of Facebook’s negative cash flow: think of all those servers they must maintain to service your account.)

Facebook has 845 million “monthly active users” who check in at least once a month—12.1% of the world’s population and 40.4% of everyone with an internet connection.
483 million of them use Facebook on a daily basis.

Very exciting numbers—but do they mean very much?

Not necessarily—if most of them are like Raymond’s wife.

More About Financial Safety Services

[Free phone consultations via "Skype". To set a time/date email: onebornfreeatyahoodotcom ]

Financial Safety Services is a private , mostly off-line, international, person to person consulting service that attempts to show its real-time [i.e. non-internet derived] clients how to speculate safely with money that they can afford to lose. Money that the client cannot afford to lose should never be risked in these speculations

For more than 20 years, nearly all of Financial Safety Services clients to date have been found via direct [i.e off-line, in-person] referral from previously satisfied clients only.

No attempts are made to procure clientele via the selling of the sporadic, deliberately incomplete online information posted at this site. All valuable information is sold to clients, via e-mail, or preferably in person, on a "need to know" customized basis, depending on their specific speculative wants/needs.

Therefor any/all posts at this site are for the reference and possible benefit of pre-existing , real-world, paying clients only as part of my services [and to perhaps help emphasize a particular point I make to them in private], and never for the benefit of the general reading public and casual internet reader at large.

Internet posts arer not made on a regular schedule in order to build an on-line audience; only when I feel that so doing is beneficial to my actual existing clientele.

I have no interest in gaining clients first hand from any posts made either here or elsewhere [if it happens, it happens!] - as i previously stated, to date [20 years+], nearly all of my previous clients have come to me via direct, in-person referral from other satisfied clients- that is, [1]an existing client personally recommends my services to a close friend, [2] the friend contacts me, [3]we discuss their wants/needs, [4] I make a decision as to whether or not I can really help them, [5] We come to a financial agreement- or not :-) .

None- Client Questions?

Should a casual reader/none client have a serious question about an assertion I make on this site, they must write to me at: onebornfreeatyahoodotcom and I will do my best to answer their question. Their first question will usually be answered for free. After that, fees may apply.

Current Client Questions.

All existing, paying client questions are of course, answered for free [usually via private e-mail]- it is part of the service!
