Facebook (FB) earnings expectations: 5 things to watch

10:19 am ET, 25 Apr 2018

Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) stock slightly dipped in today’s trading. The social networking company is disclosing its earnings results after the close bell today.

In 2017, the stock appreciated 47%. But in 2018, it is down 12%.

Investors are wondering what to expect from Facebook earnings. 

The consensus analyst profit expectation is $1.36 per share on revenue of $11.4 billion for the quarter.

Facebook's main source of revenue is advertising. Its CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that he doesn't see any significant impact on the company's business stemming from the Cambridge Analytica issue.

But according to analysts, the top position that the social networking company has attained through so many years may be threatened. User trust is broken because of the data leakage issue, instigating uncertainty around user engagement and growth.

The legislative control of social networks is evolving fast. Legislations were introduced by 2 US senators to curb Facebook data collection, storing, usage and sharing. 

On May 25, EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect. GDPR will let users control the way their personal information is stored and used. The firms that breach the rules will have to pay huge fines.

Ad prices are likely to surge because people spend less time on Facebook than before, leading to a reduction in ad impressions. The number of users in the US and Canada has declined in the previous quarter. 

For today’s earnings, the five key questions to watch out for are:

  • Is the number of users stable, or declining in developed markets such as the US and Canada? 
  • Are users spending less time on Facebook?
  • Are advertisers spending more or less money with Facebook?
  • Are there any indications of how the regulation may hit the bottom line?
  • Are the costs increasing?

What is the stock forecast for Facebook? Per Finstead Research, Facebook shares have an average price target of almost $224. It has an upside of about 40%.

The company has a fairly high valuation compared to its peers. Its P/E ratio is behind that of Google (GOOGL), Sina Corporation (SINA) and Twitter (TWTR).

Facebook (FB): Should You Buy The Stock Now?

6:31 am ET, 20 Mar 2018

The data incongruity issue has created a pressure on Facebook’s stock performance, which is down 6.79% in yesterday’s trading.  

Facebook is under huge pressure for letting the data company Cambridge Analytica acquire 50 million user profiles in the U.S., which the firm might have used to help Donald Trump in his election campaign.

The sell-off was instigated by a stipulation that Facebook allowed Cambridge Analytica to violate its terms of service since the firm used the data acquired by user submissions for commercial purposes.

From our perspective, the market might have over-reacted, since this problem was detected early and it was well taken care of by Facebook’s management.  

Facebook knew about the violation and blocked the controversial Cambridge Analytics application in 2015. The internet giant also ensured that all data acquired illegally was permanently destroyed.  

It is questionable whether all of the data was actually erased.

So we think this may be a buying opportunity for long-term Facebook investors.Based on Finstead research, Facebook’s stock price upside is 30%.

It is clear that the Facebook leadership team is trying to do the right thing to ensure consumer confidence.  

How high can the stock price go? According to Finstead, the average price target is almost $223.

Even though Facebook’s valuation is fairly high compared to its peers (its P/E ratio lags only that of GOOGL, SINA and TWTR), we see a potential for stock price appreciation because of the company’s high revenue growth (visit Finstead and type “FB growth” to get a sense of how high it is).  

Do you think Facebook will bounce back?
