This final note today is about a company you may have heard a little about recently.

 Twitter priced its shares at $26 -- last night.

The market, this morning, decided they were worth way more than that: The first trade was at $46.

The closing price $44.90.

So, if you think about it, the biggest IPO of the year actually lost ground on its first day of trading.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
