  • End of IPO 'Quiet Period' Reveals Facebook's Vulnerable Status - 28 June 2012
  • As the Facebook IPO 'quiet period' ended, only eight of the seventeen brokerages to issue reports recommended buying Facebook shares, with eight brokerages giving neutral ratings, and one issuing a 'sell' rating.

Reasons for caution, as noted by the reports, include Facebook's uncertain business model, doubts about the company's strength, margin pressures and the effect the transition to mobile technology will have on the advertising revenue of the social media company.
