One of the most outstanding achievements of 2014 came from the social networking giant that saw only meager results from the motion picture genre. It would appear that investors were less concerned with how Facebook came to be and more interested in where it could potentially lead.

Share prices have consistently risen since the initial public offering in 2013. Experienced and novice investors rallied to purchase their portion of the action, which resulted in the price per share doubling within one year. Despite record gains and the apparent ability for the company to hold its value, some investors are becoming somewhat wary of the potential outlook for Facebook stock.

The record high trading season may be coming to an end for this social media pioneer. Although the company stock makes an interesting addition to diverse portfolios and appeals to a number of different genres, some holders are deciding to unload the stock rather than holding on to options and warrants for future trading. Other shareholders are choosing to ride out the storm and see what happens next.

Generally speaking the best time to sell most investments is when the price is high. Some savvy investors have decided that Facebook has reached its peak. Good business sense and sound financial planning promise to uphold the company values despite declining interest among end users. With competition on the rise and new sites constantly being created, Facebook is facing a crossroads. Next moves by corporate executives within Facebook will undoubtedly turn the tide and help consumers and investors make decisions about their holdings within the company.
