Although Facebook has seen some growth after its initial post-IPO plunge, this is still an expensive stock, with a P/E around 60. Tech analyst Andrew Tonner is relatively bearish on the social media player and wants to hear from management about the company's long-term strategy. If Facebook can monetize its advertising more effectively, and build off its partnership with Zynga, this company could surpass investors' expectations.

If you missed his call the first time, it's not too late; this company has room to soar.
