This time the bears take a bite of Facebook. 

Facebook (FB) is down 10% after-hours and only a few pennies above $24.  Come Friday it will be a brand new 52-week low for Facebook shares.  Get ready to hear about fb all day and read 10,000 stories about it.


Facebook trading almost 30% down from its $38 price back when the IPO could do no wrong.  Bottom line is Facebook's profit wasn't good enough for the Street and the company increased its spending.

Facebook's Q2 revenue did increase and came in at $1.18 billion.  That wasn't quite good enough for the Street which was expecting revenue of $1.16 billion. The company reported a net loss of $157 million, or 8 cents per share.  The big expense was marketing and sales which hit $392 million.

Expect Facebook shares to open tomorrow in the low to mid $24 range.  If the stock keeps dropping its going to attract buying interest.
