Everything About The Facebook IPO!!!

By now you’ve probably heard the news: Facebook could be filing its papers for IPO as early as next week.

A Wall Street Journal report, siting some anonymous sources, spilled the news that many of us may have been suspecting following a week of big Facebook events.

On Tuesday, Facebook announced that all users would have the “new profile,” a.k.a. Timeline, within the next few weeks. While some may see this as a “product push,” stronger predictors to an IPO unraveled later in the week.

The next day, Facebook halted secondary market trading with no explanation, leading many to suspect an IPO was on the way. The WSJ report suggests investment bank Morgan Stanley will manage the IPO, rather than Goldman Sachs, the bank many assumed would fill that role.

Facebook is currently valued between $75 billion and $100 billion — making it the largest in tech IPO in history. Check out the video above to see how that compares to other Internet companies.

If you’re an averaged investor looking to buy a piece of Facebook, you have two options: investing in a mutual fund that invests in IPOs or buying on the aftermarket.
