    That basket of tech shorts also includes some undisclosed “high-flying momentum stocks.” Although we can’t know exactly which stocks are in this group, Monday was a rough day for, yes, high-flying momentu stocks including Facebook (down 3.35%), Tesla (down 5.27%) and GoPro (down 5.73%). The specifically mentioned Amazon was down 3.73%. All this came amid a broader market decline.

    By Paul Carsten

    BEIJING, Nov 4 (Reuters) - Alibaba Group Holding Ltd shares rose to a record high on Tuesday after the Chinese e-commerce company reported strong second-quarter results and said it would invest for the long term to expand its customer base.

    It was Alibaba's first quarterly report since its $25 billion listing in New York in September. Its shares rose about 2.7 percent to more than $104.50. The company listed in September at $68 a share.

    "We delivered a strong quarter with significant growth across our key operating metrics," Jonathan Lu, chief executive officer of Alibaba, said in the earnings statement.

    The non-GAAP net income of $1.11 billion for the July-September quarter - which excludes the share-based compensation expenses and amortisation of intangible assets - compared with a consensus estimate of $1.17 billion based on a Thomson Reuters SmartEstimate poll of 21 analysts.

    Revenue rose 53.7 percent to $2.74 billion, versus expected sales of $2.7 billion, its fastest growth in three quarters. Diluted earnings per share were $0.20, while non-GAAP diluted earnings per share were $0.45, up 9.4 percent year-on-year.

    But overall profit margins shrank to a two-year low of 18 percent, as extraordinary expenses the company chiefly attributed to share-based compensation charges of $490 million around the time of its initial public offering ate into profits.

  • Facebook Inc. (FB) said its third-quarter earnings rose 90% as the social network continued to show more evidence of its growing strength in mobile advertising.

    The results beat analysts' expectations.

    The percentage of advertising dollars that came from mobile devices increased to 66%, from 62% in the second quarter and 49% a year earlier. Investors have lauded Facebook(FB) for its ability to push that percentage ever higher, showing it can quickly adapt to changing trends in the marketplace. The shift to smart phones, phablets and tablets is one of the biggest trends in technology.

    Facebook's (FB) monthly active users also grew steadily, to 1.35 billion, up from 1.32 billion in the second quarter and 1.19 billion a year earlier. Twitter Inc.(TWTR), a Facebook(FB) competitor, wasn't so lucky Monday when investors were frightened to see the microblogging service's user growth stagnate. Much of Facebook's(FB) growth came from Asia and the rest of the world.

    Daily active users, the people Facebook(FB) says are most engaged, and therefore more valuable, grew to 864 million, from 829 million in the second quarter and 728 million a year earlier.

    "This has been a good quarter with strong results," Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said. "We continue to focus on serving our community well and continue to invest in connecting the world over the next decade."

    According to eMarketer, Facebook(FB) will control 20% of the global mobile internet ad industry by the end of the year. Google Inc., Facebook's(FB) biggest competitor, is seeing its stranglehold on that market loosen. Its share of that $36 billion market is expected to drop to 45% from 50% two years ago.

    Facebook (FB) has become a mobile-first company. It recently launched the Facebook Audience Network, the company's first advertising network that allows marketers to buy ads through Facebook(FB) that appear on partner apps. The "FAN" is mobile- only.

    It also closed its $19 billion acquisition of WhatsApp, a messaging and voice app that is wildly popular overseas. It has been creating new, standalone mobile apps that operate separately from Facebook(FB). Most recently, it launched " Rooms," an app that recreates the chat room experience from the early days of the internet.

    Overall, Facebook(FB) reported a profit of $806 million, or 30 cents a share, up from $425 million, or 17 cents a share, a year earlier. Excluding share-based compensation and other items, earnings rose to 43 cents a share from 27 cents.

    Revenue increased 59% to $3.2 billion, while revenue from advertising surged 64% to $2.96 billion.

    Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected a per-share profit of 40 cents and revenue of $3.12 billion.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
