Regulators Raise Questions About Facebook IPO

Download Audio

Did Morgan Stanley and other Wall Street banks warn its top clients that Facebook might not be such a good deal based on insider information? And if they did, was that illegal?

In Massachusetts, Secretary of State William Galvin issued a subpoena to find out what Morgan Stanley analysts told investors about the deal.

Wall Street's self-policing agency is investigating and a small investor in Maryland is hoping to launch a class action suit accusing NASDAQ of botching the IPO  due to computer glitches that delayed the launch.
