    Today twitter officially went public with an IPO share price of $26 per share. I read that this puts the value of twitter at $18 Billion. This is a company that has NEVER made a profit. Some may argue that the potential of being profitable is there which may be true but as of today, a company that has never made a dime and has lost hundreds of millions of dollars should in no way shape or form be worth $18 Billion no matter what their future plan to make money is.

    I like the idea of investing in a company that has never shown a profit.

    I wasn't talking about preference of investing or not, I was talking about current value today.

    Twitter is a history altering service...I think in this case the valuation is fair. They're in the same league as Facebook. The world is a different place because of these two ideas that's a pretty big deal.

    Facebook was already profitable. I'm not disputing what twitter brings. But as of this moment, it has NOT made any money. The value is all speculating potential. The price shot up to almost $50 per share. So if you thought $26 per share was fair, what do you consider 50, for a company that has never been profitable.

    Stock pricing is all about the future. What's happened in the past is irrelevant.

    This is all about price speculation. The price of shares will drop soon while many will make nice profit.
