These days everyone who can spare $250 K to invest is dying to own a piece of Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Or so it seems, according to Ferdinand Aracon, PR manager of Ailant Finance Capital Markets, http://www.afcmarkets.com.
“Every time there is more stock available, we get surge in interest. There is huge demand,” says Tor Ellingsen, senior investment officer of Ailant Finance Capital Markets, http://www.afcmarkets.com, an independent financial institution that cooperates with registered brokers and create special purpose limited liabilities companies to buy shares in late stage private companies. These companies are buying a lot of shares-Facebook stock, for example-from ex-employees, consultants or existing investors.
The interest for Facebook shares appears to be insatiable among investors- hedge funds, high net worth individuals, and other financial institutions from all around the world. All this will eventually drive up the value of the company, which was valued at only $10 billion in 2010. As of February 2011, the company is valued at roughly $50 billion, and investors are targeting Google's market cap of $200 billion. A cool 400% potential gain.
