‘Tremendous Opportunity’ in Facebook: Bob Peck


Facebook is a “buy” due to several growth catalysts down the road, CoRise President Bob Peck, a shareholder, told CNBC on Wednesday.

“If they just got 2 percent of their 500 million people that live on Facebook every single day to buy something through an Amazon store on Facebook, right there that’s $6 billion gross revenues, of which Facebook would get $1 billion or so in commissions,” he said on “Fast Money.”

Currently selling for half of its IPO price, Facebook stock would be “short-term choppy,” he said.

Peck also said that mobile ads, an app store and subscription services held great potential.

“I think the big thing is it’s a show-me story,” he said. “This is a tremendous opportunity. We think they’ll execute again.”
