Here is what Carillon Clarivest Capital Appreciation Fund has to say about Meta Platforms, Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) in its Q1 2022 investor letter

"Stock selection contributed the most while sector allocation was also positive. An underweight to communication services and an overweight to energy helped performance, while an underweight to consumer staples and an overweight to materials detracted. Stock selection was strong within healthcare and materials but was weak within information technology and industrials. Meta Platforms (NASDAQ:FB), the social media company formerly known as Facebook, missed forecasts amid stagnating user growth and increasing competition."
