Somewhat obscured behind big earnings news from Apple and Amazon, Facebook posted big numbers exceeding analyst projections on both the top and bottom lines. The company generated $2.5 billion in revenues and adjusted earnings of $0.34 per share. Analysts had projected $2.36 billion in revenue and $0.24 a share in profits. The world's largest social network also gained 50 million new monthly active users, with a grand total of 1.28 billion users. Perhaps most importantly, mobile ads now generate 60% of FB's total ad revenues. In fact, monthly mobile active users crossed over the key 1 billion mark during the quarter. It will be interesting to see what the company does in the coming months with acquisitions of WhatsApp and Oculus VR. (VIEW LINK)
