After much debate, I actually convinced my dad to use some of my IRA money to buy into some $FB. I am now a proud owner of 6 shares (the original goal was 5 shares).
Here's a funny little widget I found: Mark Zuckerberg's Wealth-o-Meter. Track his wealth as his company goes public. Poor little rich boy was only worth $19.14 billion at IPO price $38. It's now huddling around $40 (I managed to get in before it broke $40).
What a great way to start the weekend, right? Investing in my industry.
