We all have our own idea of how FB might move after earnings. It is good to be armed with info so you can know what could be possible..
Following are Facebook's reported and consensus eps numbers for the last four quarters. The reported eps and consensus estimates are in non-GAAP numbers. For each quarter, there are 5 days closing prices before and after the earnings. The day of the earnings announcements are in parenthesis.
Consensus estimate: .32
Actual earnings: .42
Consensus estimate: .24
Actual earnings: .34
Consensus estimate: ..27
Actual earnings: .31
Consensus estimate: .19
Actual earnings: .25
There are many other reasons why stocks fly or sink after earnings but this gives everyone a good idea of potential ranges as well as scenarios through FB earnings.
Both statements are untrue. GOOG revenue was not down and FB revenue was not 15% above estimates. You need to understand the difference between revenue and income.
I am sure you etal can find something that is true about FB instead of posting falsehoods.
Once again your wrong. GOOG's revenue is up. Learn the difference between revenue and income.
Also take a little bit of time learning key metrics that drive stocks.
I am not saying FB will do poorly or do well. I am saying you need to learn that $16.523B is larger than $15.955B.
GOOG has increased revenue sequentially every quarter this year. Besides GOOG's divestiture of Motorola last year, their revenue has grown sequentially for quite a long time. FB only increases its revenue by 15% every other quarter.
The type of revenue of both companies is different. To top that off Trying to make a comparison and say there is a money flow is a bit futile because it wont materially affect Facebook's revenue.
Its all right if you are bullish on FB but posting numerous falsehoods with your 20 other id's is getting a bit old.
What is meant by next Google? These big gambles of yours are not investing.
Facebook will not buy Yelp! Stop making stuff up.
FB is doing well but you cant make a comparison to GOOG. It is apple's and oranges. FB looks like it will do well in the future but 200 looks like what you would like to happen not a highly probable target.
What you see is a trend. Stocks remain in trends and break out from consolidation or patterns holding stocks.
Yes, that is correct. One person sells either a call or put and one person buys a call or put and the OI goes up by 1 on the calls side if it is a call transaction or up by 1 on the put side if it is a put transaction.
Short options are sold not borrowed. So they are not borrowed like a stock. OI is basically all and underline all open contracts both short and long. Volume is just the number of transactions. Volume is just the number of transactions that take place during a day. Please note that the options trade in pairs. Someone sells and someone buys. An open interest of 1means that 1 contract was sold to someone.........1 person sold and one person bought.
If you think in terms of pairs of options, the OI makes sense. Remember that options aren't as they are right not an actually entity. Someone who sells a call for $85 is giving someone the right to buy an equity for $85.00 and this can be exercised until the option expires.
So the short answer is yes when someone is short an option OI goes up by as many contracts as the person is short.
Doubling your investment in FB in one year is very unlikely. There has been no stock above 190 billion market cap that has doubled in one year. That is in no way saying it cant happen and maybe FB can have an exceptional performance that would allow that to happen.
No one really knows what the market will perform. Expecting FB to double is an unrealistic expectation.
correction: Left side is a few dollars higher than the right side.
There has to be about a 30 percent retrace on the handle. The right side is few dollars higher than the right side. This is not a good C&H which is about a 40% pattern.
This is all per Mr. Oneil
The C&H's that do well are the once that have very nice rounded bottoms and are conformed. The handle needs to have a decent retrace. You do have flag but the coils are not wound tight. With all this said, FB should travel well when it has conviction and share volume. I dont believe the C&H is going to push FB. Technically there is no handle because there is no retrace which should be around $7.
There is talk that YELP is a good take over stock. However, there has not been a 15 billion dollar offer made by FB nor has there been a 10 billion dollar offer by GOOG. Did you know the word "reportedly" means it has been reported? It hasn't been reported. I think you mean something else.
Yelp is a momo stock with a lot of beta. Its all right if you think maybe Facebook might buy Yelp for 15B but don't say it is fact and don't say it has been reported because it hasn't.
I don't know where you come up with this stories. If Facebook were buying Yelp, there would be a little bit of news. It would be out of the rumor mill and there would be 100's of articles.
You are saying the comment is not about the relationship between the two companies and then you draw a relationship. I wholeheartedly agree that there is no relationship between the two companies values.
.....................But if you do want to know how they assign a value to Snapchat it works like this: In a round of founding and investor puts in a certain amount of money (like 10 to 100 million). The dollar amount invested is divided by the number shares and this is turn is multiplied by the total number shares outstanding. These are private shares since the company is not public.
Here is an example of a fictitious company batswamp. Bat swamp has 100 million shares. An investor puts in 100 million dollars in a round of funding. The investor gets 1 million shares. Based on this investment the shares are worth $100/share. Multiply this by 100 million shares and the company is valued at 10 billion. That is not to say that others would pay this price for the company but this is a way that the value of the company is being reported and that is exactly how they ascertain the value of the company.
I don't see how the two are related. FB is valued at close to 200B and snapchat is worth 10B based on what some outside investors speculation on it's future value. The two are really unrelated.
