On the NASDAQ for the way the debut is being handled what do you make of the price -- some of these issues being talked about right now.
Look I think guy everybody expected a bigger -- then that has actually happened so and -- -- they're surprised.

-- following the launch of the company.
Again I think the difference is here -- says many of the others you're mentioning earlier Linkedin.
A group on some of the others this company was effectively public for the last few years so there was a market people had some idea of where the stock has been and was going.
And then also consider the fact that you know when they've prizes.
They've trying to provide -- range initially.
It was 28 to 35 dollars a worse is that.
This stock is up almost twelve dollars.
All -- up 40% from the lower end of that range so I think that perhaps the price of a little bit higher.
Then they should -- but all set and I think god not too bad.
Start us back -- got to give the underwriter some credit for pricing its act 38 dollars because.
As you've been discussing -- seem to leave a whole lot on the table they're not over valuing it either and your own price target.
Fully a price target of 46 dollars and then in two years 59 dollars seems very reasonable.
Exactly yeah I think gov for the underwriters are the top tax challenges to balance the need -- Not a company that's going public now with the needs of the investors and honesty is a negotiation process that goes on.
And at the end of the day you know I agree that they didn't -- too much money on the table.

On the numbers you might be disappointed.
I think out for these guys -- -- First and foremost task is -- maintain a strong user experience so that people keep coming back.
What that might mean and it made it abundantly clear what that might mean is in the short term.
There is also fluctuate the General Motors example to me in in some ways -- signifying that because this is such a new medium.
Advertisers are trying to figure out how best to use it it's part of the growing pains.
And again so I would not expect everything to go to go.
I straight out from here to -- fluctuations which is why you need to look at this on a multi year basis but a lot of no growth portfolio managers.
That I talked to are suggesting to me that they want to -- this.
As a core holding in their portfolios.
This is has got a large address of a margin of 600 billion dollars.
They're gonna have a billion people on it advertisers are gonna find it to -- and ignore.
Those are things that you have to pay attention to more than the near term much raises in the numbers.
