  4. 4. Short-Term Investors • Though Facebook is a more mature stock in terms of its overall market cap, missing or beating analyst estimates can have huge sway over short-term price movements. • This is largely because the stock trades for 62 times trailing earnings.

  6. 6. Medium-Term Investors Many will closely follow the company’s daily active users and engagement metrics. Usage Trends
  7. 7. Medium-Term Investors Because investors want to see that Facebook is still popular with users, they will focus on two key metrics. 1. Daily Active Users. If the company is able to grow this figure by 18% to 825 million, it would mean continued ability to gain traction with users. 2.

  10. 10. Long-Term Investors Comments by businessmen I highly respect have made me excited for the company’s two new acquisitions. • Zuckerberg: “[WhatsApp] could be as ubiquitous as Facebook one day.” • Our CEO Tom Gardner recently tweeted: “I believe that [Oculus Rift] will be the most gamechanging consumer technology since the iPhone. The impact may be more profound.”
  11. 11. Everyone knows that Facebook and Apple—along with a handful of other stalwarts—rule the technology field. They are great investments, but have limited upside potential because of their sheer size. What’s an investor to do? Well, some early viewers of Apple’s newest gadget are claiming it will trump the iPod, iPhone, and iPad…combined! But one small company will be providing the technology to make it run.
