10:16 pm
offering did not go perfectly. nasdaq revealed details of a glitch that impacted early trading. in the end the facebook stock gained about 23 cents today. fox 5's wisdom martin is here with details. >> the experts say think back to the days of google, krispy kreme and some of the other big name ipos when they came out. most of them had huge first day runs and even ran up a couple months. facebook was hoping for the same kind of success. the much anticipated, much hyped facebook stock initially hit the market at $38 per share. while some consumers couldn't wait -- >> i haven't been interested in stock for ai think it's a good i like what they're doing. >> reporter: -- others stayed away from this one. >> i don't have the money. >> i think this one round with this one company is really hyped up. i think it's a matter waiting 30, 60, 90 days and buying at the right time. >> i did not buy any today. >> reporter: why? >> because it was too rich for
10:17 pm
my blood. it was a little expensive. >> reporter: are you going to buy any in the future? >> i don't know. we'll have to see where it goes. >> reporter: it went as high as $45 closed at $38.23, yes, a whopping 23 cents above the initial offering price. part of the problem for the lackluster opening day was a glitch by nasdaq that caused a 30 minute delay. experts say it was almost 2 1/2 hours before its trade messages were working normally. >> i put in a limited order with my broker still sitting there unfilled. >> there was so much demand they couldn't match the buyers and sellers. so that created the delay which created some concern and so it got off to a rocky start. >> reporter: the director of financial planning with edelman services says what really happened was kind of a flop for facebook. >> what the stock market is going to do to facebook is say that's great that you did this. you accumulated all these users and have all this opportunity. where's the profit and where's
10:18 pm
the profit not just from what you've already got, where's the profit going forward? >> reporter: he says what happens next with facebook is anybody's guess. >> forget what have you done for me lately. it's what are you going to do for me next? that's the problem. >> he says most stocks, in fact, 60%, trade below their ipo price within three years. bottom line, be a smart investor. don't chase one company just because you use it and remember, diversify and don't put all your eggs in one basket. >> always good advice, wisdom martin, thanks. facebook stock now makes bono the richest musician in the world stealing the title from sir paul mccartney. according to british magazine, facebook's ipo will substantially boost bono's wealth. the u2 front man's private equity firm bought 2.3% of the shares in facebook for ninety- three million dollars three years ago, the shares now valued at 1.5 billion. we all know there are traffic cameras to catch us
10:19 pm
speeding and running red lights. in d.c. there will soon be cameras to catch drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians trying to cross the street. fox 5's matt ackland explains. >> reporter: the law is clear in d.c. if there's a crosswalk, the pedestrian has the right-of- way. but the law is often ignored. these are good examples. first watch as this woman crosses in an suv and metrobus -- and an suv and metrobus don't bother to stop. a short time later it happens again. this man enters the crosswalk, but cars keep moving. >> i did read the sign that did say that it was d.c. law that they were supposed to stop. so that kind of encouraged me to go across. i was kind of wondering how i'd get across the street with all the traffic going by. >> that's behavior that we want to stop that's very dangerous. >> reporter: many d.c. leaders support the enforcement of the crosswalk law but say before cameras are put in place the
10:20 pm
amount of the fine needs to be reviewed. >> when people get hit with the fine at $250, i mean that's quite an impact. >> the more and more we use cameras to ticket people, the more we need to reduce the size of the fines. >> reporter: we're told d.c. police plan to use eight cameras for the crosswalk enforcement. this technology will be mobile. so the cameras could pop up anywhere across the district. a good idea, most agree, the only issue, the cost of the fine. >> you cross the line and a camera catches you, $250 just for that, that's outrageous. that's not necessary. >> it should be higher, at least 500 bucks. >> we wanted to know how much this new camera enforcement program would generate for the district of columbia. well, one council member gave us a conservative estimate of $175,000 a year, but once again that's a conservative estimate. in the newsroom matt ackland, fox 5 news.

10:48 pm
weekend. >> that's right. >> it was nice that day, wasn't it? >> it was beautiful. perfect. >> i thought that. it's going to be pretty good this weekend, too. we've been talking about this little storm down to the south along the coast. it looks like it is going to behave. i just got some new info in, was checking it out and i'll just say it right here. the one guidance feature we were looking at that was actually trying to bring some rain in on sunday is actually no longer bringing the rain in sunday. that was the one lonesome hold out. some good encouraging news for change out there. temperatures, the high temperature today 76 for d.c. at reagan national, dulles just about there and bwi 75 as well. we'll be a little warmer tomorrow it looks like closing in on 80 degrees. we'll see some high clouds from time to time. more clouds coming in on sunday. that's the way it's looking now, but we'll keep it dry with some clouds around temperature a little cooler, perhaps upper 70s instead of right there bumping up at 80 degrees. again just some high clouds tomorrow and more clouds coming
10:49 pm
in sunday. it looks like at a point in time on sunday it could be cooler down south. i think the clouds will be a little thicker down there sunday. mild out there now, 66 degrees. depending on where you are out in the suburbs, manassas 55, culpeper one of the cooler spots and it's nice along the bay, too annapolis now sitting in the middle 60s. so it looks like tonight, even though we'll have some of these very high thin cirrus clouds, generally speaking it's going to be mostly fair. the thicker clouds will be farther down to the south, winds out of the northeast 5 to 10 miles per hour. this is this little coastal feature we've been tracking for the last few days. the big problem with this storm system is it's kind of just cut off from any flow. the jet stream can't move it along and it's in a sense trapped by the high pressure up to the north of it there and there's just nothing moving it

here. so it's just sitting and spinning. that does a couple things. that leaves the clouds in place for us, but it makes it a little tricky to forecast. so it takes a while for our forecast models with any reliability to kind of hock in on that feature and give us -- lock in on that feature and give us a really good forecast. it looks cloudy. look at satellite and radar. the clouds coming across and a lot of this is real high thin stuff that's barely noticeable. before the sunset it was so gorgeous for just about everybody. tomorrow we're warm with temperatures approaching 80 degrees, some places may get to 81 or 82, but the winds will be coming from the northeast tomorrow. any time the winds come from the northeast it's hard to get the temperature up very much. of course, we'll be watching this storm. not a great impact for us, but by sunday there could be a few showers along the shore. sunshine tomorrow morning, some clouds, too 60. warm at noon, 74 and again some clouds. that's pretty much the feature we'll be watching this weekend,
10:51 pm
temperatures topping out tomorrow right at 80, again a little cooler sunday with more clouds. we stay dry, though, sunday. a few showers possible sunday night, but mainly on monday we'll have scattered showers, some thunderstorms coming back for fuse and wednesday. again all things consider -- tuesday and wednesday. again all things considered it's going to be a real nice weekend. with the presidential race heating up both candidates came out swinging this week attacking each other's economic plans. earlier today i talked to fox news sunday host chris wallace. >> we'll focus on the big topic and that, of course is, economics. the president and his team went after romney and his record as a job creator at bain capital and romney went right back at the president on his record with the debt and deficit. we'll have a debate sunday between paul ryan, the republican chair of the house budget committee, and maybe the really leading intellectual force on capitol hill for the republicans. he's going to debate austin

10:53 pm
romney and newt gingrich. you can see hundreds and millions of dollars with very little accounting of it in these independent super pacs and sometimes as is case, it didn't end up happening, of these attack ads about obama and reverend wright where they're doing things that the candidate they are supporting doesn't want them to do. i think it will have a real impact. we've never seen it before. this is the first time it's ever happened because of the supreme court decision. >> switching gears, we understand and i quote from my producer you killed it on jeopardy last week. how was the experience? >> well, you know, it was like a roller coaster. there were tremendous ups and downs. now i can bask in the kudos because i did win, but you don't know that's going to happen going in. the opportunity to really make a fool of yourself is out there. so i'm he breathing a lot he's -- i'm breathing a lot easier. it was great fun, but that's also because it turned out okay. >> congratulations. we were all rooting for you.
