Would not be difficult for you to find the name Mark Zuckerberg on the internet. This name was never crowned a magazine as the world’s most influential people in the building of friendships through the site, Facebook.
Mark Zuckerberg in recent days may have been upset. Facebook threatened sites decreased as more and more popularity of social media options. When from 2004 to 2011 there were only a few social media Twitter and small, now Google, the Internet giant has entered the social media and so far successful. Success is at least illustrates that users start looking for alternatives as more social media users ever use Facebook.
But to be honest so far Facebook has managed to deliver Mark Zuckerberg to be rich and respected in the world. Starting from the IPOs that have been designed long ago, Mark uses Facebook to get the list of richest people in the world.
Facebook did an IPO on May 18, 2012. Facebook IPO stock price is pegged for 38 dollars per share. According to many people the price is too high and the view on the number of Facebook users who will not grow as ever before, investors risk loss. However, because the hype is very high for the stock up and is predicted as the largest IPO in history, investors do not seem to care anymore.
Let’s count Mark Zuckerberg’s fortune when the stock price set at 38 dollars per share. Mark the number of shares in Facebook about 503.6 million shares. With the price of 38 dollars per share, Mark Zuckerberg at the time of IPO earned 19.14 billion dollars. It’s not enough, after some time after the IPO, the stock price rose up to number 45 dollars per share. With the price of this new wealth of Mark Zuckerberg to over 22 billion dollars.
But the sweet story of Mark Zuckerberg’s wealth is too fleeting. When we look at the stock price up, it turns out that the stock price continues to show a decrease trend. Until yesterday, Facebook’s stock price hit bottom in the figure of 20 dollars per share.
This downward trend in stock prices began three days after the IPO, the exact date is May 21, 2012. When the stock price falls up to 34 dollars per share. Of course Mark wealth also fell to 17.122 billion U.S. dollars. This means that in three days, Mark lost nearly 3 billion dollars. On May 22, stock prices fell further up to the 31 U.S. dollars. Of course Mark’s wealth is reduced.
Greater decrease occurred in the date of May 31, 2012. At that time the stock price up is $ 29 per share figures. This means that already has decreased from $ 9 share price. Mark’s wealth amounted to 14.604 billion dollars now. Has decreased by about 5 billion dollars compared to when the IPO.
Downward trend in the stock price keeps going up to make Mark Zuckerberg was thrown from a list of 40 billionaire Bloomberg version. Last price at 20.04 dollars per share figures are making fortunes Mark Zuckerberg live about 10.2 billion dollars. This means that in less than three months (from 18 ME1 2012 to August 4, 2012) Mark Zuckerberg had lost 9 billion dollars over the value of his wealth. This means that every month, Mark lost 3 billion dollars, an amount very much if dirupiahkan.
Of course we ask why a decline in the share price up until it reaches 47% from its IPO price?
As I have said, there are several factors that influence the success or failure of IPO Facebook. The first IPO of social media are not familiar with Wall Street. There is the fact that 19 social media to do an IPO in the year 2011 decreased performance. 82.4% of social media to do an IPO in 2011 that last year, its shares are now trading below the opening price and 57.9% currently trading below its IPO price.
Second, the number of Facebook users will experience stagnation. If the assumption of growth before 2012 is used, the next four years could have users up to 9 billion people, but people on this earth is only 7 billion, a new and even then reached in October 2011. This means that Facebook users would have stagnated. It should also be based on the last release, a fake Facebook account increased, from 5.6% to 8.7%. This means that there are about 87 million fake accounts.
Not only that some recent news indicates a negative thing about Facebook. Discharge of large advertisers who menganganggarkan fund $ 10 million ad on Facebook, namely General Motors became presden ugly that it pays to advertise in Facebook is not good. It definitely will affect investor opinion.
Another cause is the competition from other social media, especially Google Plus and Twitter. Facebook more often old age, users began to seek alternative social media. In Indonesia alone the last two weeks there is a reduction of 1.2 million Facebook accounts.
This means that after the IPO, the performance is decreasing Facebook. The amount of negative news related to Facebook to make the stock price was depressed and this directly affects the wealth of Mark Zuckerberg. Mark is now very dependent on the stock price up. His wealth was far down from the time of IPO and maybe one more time will go down again if the stock price continued to fall up.
But of course there will always be up stock prices go up again. However, stock prices usually go down easier than up. To reach the share price 38 dollars per share, Mark Zuckerberg may have to be patient it will not happen this year. Plus look at the growth of Google and Twitter, I believe it is not easy for Facebook to reach the current share price at the IPO.
