I don’t think it’s going to go anywhere near-term. I think maybe it’ll get back up to $28 or $30 in a year because they are reaching into developing markets with a feature-phone product that’s simplified Facebook.
They’re going to find big markets in India and Brazil and Indonesia, but they’re not in China to any extent. They don’t really have advertising capability in those markets, so I think it’s a “hold” or basically a “walk away from,” unless they get some real serious management in there that knows how to monetize.
I’m looking for a decline in advertising revenue and not much else.
Look, the volume has disappeared on Facebook trading, and (Co-Founder and CEO Mark) Zuckerberg‘s got to step up. He hasn’t really told anybody anything that’s going to capture attention.
