Massachusetts regulators on Friday fined a Citigroup unit $2 million for failing to prevent analysts from illegally leaking confidential information about Facebook's initial public offering.
Citigroup (C) was one of several banks that competed to underwrite Facebook's (FB) IPO, along with lead underwriter Morgan Stanley (MS), Goldman Sachs (GS), Bank of America (BAC) and others.
Under U.S. securities law, IPO underwriters are not allowed to publish research on a company until MOREBen Rooney - Oct 26, 2012 11:11 AM ET

Shares of the maker of identity theft protection services, which began trading Wednesday under the ticker "LOCK" (LOCK), fell nearly 7% in their New York Stock Exchange (NYX) debut.

Since its botched initial public offering in May, investors have heatedly discussed the following question about Facebook (FB): How low can it go?
After surging last week to a recent high of above $23 a share from its all-time low of $17.55, it looked like the Facebook fans finally had reason to celebrate. But Facebook's stock plummeted more than 9% Monday after an article appeared in Barron's over the weekend which MOREMaureen Farrell - Sep 24, 2012 1:03 PM ET
Nasdaq defended its proposed $62 million compensation plan for firms hurt by its botched IPO of Facebook (FB).
In a letter sent to the Securities and Exchange Commission late Wednesday, Nasdaq (NDAQ) called the payout "fair and equitable."

Shares of Facebook (FB) rebounded from an all-time low Wednesday, after CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he'd be holding onto his shares for at least a year.
Ever since Facebook went public in May, the stock has struggled to gain traction as investors worry about the social network's mobile strategy and how much pressure will come from the expiration of multiple lock-up periods (when insiders can sell their shares).
But after the market MOREMaureen Farrell - Sep 5, 2012 10:52 AM ET
Facebook really can't catch a break. Shares of the social network hit an all-time low Friday after Bank of America-Merrill Lynch analysts lowered their price target and warned of headwinds for the stock.
It's been a rough summer for Facebook. The company's much-hyped IPO in May fell flat as a pancake after Nasdaq (NDAQ) botched Facebook's opening. Since then, the stock has barely come within spitting distance of its $38-a-share IPO MORECatherine Tymkiw - Aug 31, 2012 1:47 PM ET
