Back in late-October, Facebook (FB) peaked at around $55 before pulling back below the 50-day moving average. The recent low of $43.55 appears to have established a short-term trading bottom. While the stock is still below the 50-day moving average, the downward momentum has ended and stochastics are actually moving up.

I i’s likely that the stock will take a while to climb through resistance, but those with a longer time horizon might want to consider buying at current levels.

Facebook Inc., is a social networking website which builds products that creates utility for users, developers, and advertisers.

    I asked some college kids if they would rather own stock in Facebook or Instagram on Thanksgiving day.
    I got both answers then I told them if they want to own stock in Instagram they had to purchase Facebook stock.
    The look I got was worth it. One kid went online to verify. I then told them that going from Facebook to Instagram or Instagram to Facebook is like moving from one department to another in the same store.

    Is it possible that the girl going from Facebook to SnapChat as COO is actually an attempt to disguise an actual purchase while verifying information to determine a final price?
