Facebook IPO Stumbles

Late last week, Facebook made history when it hit the Federal Stock Exchange by pricing its stocks at $38 a share, which raised $16 billion in the third biggest IPO in U.S. history and the largest by a technology company. The IPO also values Facebook at a whopping $104 billion, the largest ever valuation for a newly public company.

Ok, now I am not going to pretend to know what any of that previous paragraph means, but I do know one thing: Mark Zuckerberg and company may have overvalued themselves. Over the past week, the talk of the business world was that because of the overvaluation, shareholders have already lost over $100 million. Not good, hence the thumbs down.

Our customers really want to see American Idols Live

It’s not a secret that American Idol is popular and has been since the series premiered in 2002. Idol has had its ups and downs, but it’s still one of the highest rated series on television, even after 10 years.

Just as popular is the summer tour that runs after each season. Regardless of how the season’s finalists ultimately do in the music industry after their time on Idol, it’s pretty much guaranteed that they have fans who want to see their favorite finalist at least one more time.

Ticket Sales

The first round of tickets went on sale the weekend before last, so I decided to look into how well the tour has done. It turns out that tickets have sold very well indeed. In fact, Idol is by far the best-selling concert tour for May on our exchange. A vast majority of Idols tickets that have sold thus far - over 62% - were bought on the week of the 8th. Last week, sales slowed down but continued at a fair clip nonetheless.

So just who is going to American Idols Live? Here’s a map of ticket buyers by region.
