APPL reported record numbers of phone sales in China. More people signing up for the app during holidays season. new subscriber numbers will be key in tonight's report. I'm voting positive results.
Earnings will be top of the estimates, top line will be at least 50% growth rate, and earnings is at least 40% growth rate. The number will be even more in the near future. FB eats Google's lunch everyday in Asia. Please do your homework, then you will see that every kids in Asia knows about Face Book and Instagram, and messenger.
i longterm bullish,but the co bought a few cos last year,it cost some cash and some stock,ive got to believe that so,e of whats happening is tied to some selling by insiders,especially the more newly minted ,they do it to diversifi.i think the next cpl of earnings reports unless bad will have very little effect on stockprice,for fb holders who have held for a while its about what the co says,they usually have not been helpful
Wahtsapp now has 700 million+ users (and growing) who each ay a annual subscription fee of a dollar.....this is of course at some point, a bigger revenue maker. But setting that aside, Instagram is breaking the sound barrier at warp speed as I understand it and it seems OOPS, monetization has alot of room to grow.
Back to FB....roughly 25% of the world is using it....as was stated on yahoo finance article....and monetization of FB is an ongoing/evolving process.
AAPL blew expectations out of the water, well above and beyond ANALyst expectations.....which might also mean a few more FB users might have been gained....hmmmmmmm....gee I wonder....!? Oh and no currency slam on AAPL........................hmmmmmmmmmm..............oh and sporting events, the holidays, National Weather Reports crying wolf over polar dips in recent months........... .
I suppose what I am getting at is that the stock price seems to be held in check as though someone thinks earnings and forecast will be lackluster. But I have to say, the NAYSAYERS have not been correct YET! Um I think naysayers have somehow chosen to ignore the fact that FB is in GROWTH MODE and will likely remain there for some time to come...since it is afterall, the pioneer cutting the path that others are FORCED to follow! All IMHO...............
sucka...that would be me, today. not sticking to the intraday business of:
(why i think/thought FB would trade into 78's pre-ER, i...dont...know!!) :-(\
