People think this stock is Twitter

It is not. 

Tweeter Home Entertainment (TWTRQ) was a consumer electronics retailer that sold TVs, car radios, home theater systems, and the like at more than 100 U.S. stores. In 2007 it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and had its assets sold to a new owner, who also filed for Chapter 11 a year later.

Is Facebook a Bubble?

Bloomberg reports that a poll of global investors reveals that 69% of them think that  Facebook is overvalued. Just 10% thought it was “properly valued” (and  4% thought it undervalued), while 17% had “no idea.” Bloomberg conducted the poll over the past weekend, and revealed the results  yesterday. One of the poll respondents, John J. Lee of PGB Trust &  Investments, minced no words talking to Bloomberg: “Those  investing in Facebook, expecting it to be the next Google, might be in  for some bad news along the way. Eventually, all fads get cheaper  copycat lookalikes. While being first to market makes Facebook a winner,  another faster, stronger company with more something will come along  and dilute its value.”
