Facebook IPO said to be Oversubscribed by Reuters and Bloomberg Reports Weak Demand

The Facebook IPO is the topic in the financial world, and as mentioned before I am also thinking about trying to get some Facebook shares as soon as they trade. I do not think the average Joe will get access to IPO shares. Is investing in Facebook a good idea? I do not know yet. Two reports that appeared today are not helping that decision, but are illustrating how controversial the Facebook IPO is, e.g. Zuckerberg Hoodie-Gate.

Bloomberg reports that sources with knowledge of the matter said that the Facebook IPO generated lower than expected demand from institutional investors. Reuters reports that the Facebook IPO is already oversubscribed. Reuters cites a source that is familiar with the share listing. So what is true? 

By the way, whatever happened with the rumors that Facebook users get a chance to get in on the IPO?

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
