What Facebook's Earnings Mean for Mutual Fund Investors (FB)

Shauna O'Brien Jan 29, 2015

After the closing bill on Wednesday, Facebook (FB) released its fourth quarter financial results. Here’s what the report means for mutual fund investors.

Inside FB’s Results


The company reported earnings of $701 million, or 25 cents per share, up from $523 million, or 20 cents per share, last year. Excluding special items, earnings were $1.52 billion, or 54 cents per share – above analysts’ view of 48 cents per share.

Revenue jumped 49% to $3.85 billion from $2.59 billion. Analysts expected to see revenue of $3.77 billion.

Momentum Lost to Apple

While Facebook released an impressive report for the first quarter, momentum investors were hoping for an Apple-like earnings impact. Along with its increase in profits, Facebook reported strong mobile advertising growth. Establishing mobile dominance should make fund managers and investors optimistic about the shares. While the share price may continue to trade in a tight range, FB is definitely a stock for investors to keep an eye on.
