Facebook Analysts Expect Earnings Will Reinforce Rebound

As Facebook prepares to report first-quarter results, analysts are confident that the social-media company has moved past negative headlines that dogged the stock throughout the second half of 2018 and that it is positioned to monetize its massive user base in new ways.

Facebook’s recent gains have come on signs that controversies over user data and privacy haven’t had an appreciable impact on usage, particularly at fast-growing Instagram. 

Analysts expect the quarter to underline how controversies haven’t led to an exodus of regular users or advertisers. According to estimates compiled by Bloomberg, Wall Street is looking for 1.56 billion daily active users in the quarter and roughly 2.37 billion monthly active users. Both would represent sequential growth off the fourth quarter’s read of 1.52 billion daily users and 2.32 billion monthly users.

Whatever you say, nobody trusts Facebook anymore... But, the real battle is whether Instagram would be laid to waste like Facebook or would continue to grow?

One of the GOP congressman asked how Facebook made money if their service was free. Zuckerberg was clearly confused as he said “Ads. We make money from ads.” Anyone who reads the FB 10-K should know how they make money. The 10-K is a company’s annual report they file to the SEC.

I now spend as little time as possible on Facebook but do post top stories to my nearly 5,000 Facebook Friends. They lean far left but have been letting up a little on conservatives. Just for show. They are very devious.Twitter and most others are the same.
