Facebook IPO today – May 18, 2012

The biggest social media network, Facebook, is going public today.  Facebook IPO is breaking all sorts of records from the most volume for a new IPO to the biggest IPO for a tech company.  It is the second biggest IPO ever in the US after Visa.

The stock symbol for Facebook will be FB.  It is priced at $38 and went as high as $42 before touching back to the initial price.  Do you think it will fare better than some of the recent IPOs like LinkedIn and Groupon?
