***********************************************************************************

Facebook (FB, $29.96) shares today rallied 5.9% after gaining 3.7% yesterday. This
is only the second time since the company went public in the middle of May that the
stock has been able to string together two winning sessions in a row.

Facebook shares, which have rebounded 17% from the post-IPO low of $25.52 set
on June 6, are now back above the low end of the initial expected IPO range of $28 to
$35 (it was later lifted to $34 to $38). But the stock is still down 21% from the IPO
price of $38.

The stock has stabilized as investors begin to get more comfortable with Facebook’s
planned strategy to monetize its growing mobile user base via targeted ads. With
mobile users, the goal is to deploy targeted ads that are most relevant based on
location and timing. Facebook looks to increase user engagement with targeted ads
and hopes this strategy will be an easy one to sell to advertisers.
