When does Facebook report its Q2 results?

Facebook Inc (All Sessions) reports its Q2 earnings after market on Wednesday 28 July 2021 EST.

What to watch out for

Analysts are tipping another bumper quarter from Facebook. Revenue is tipped to grow by 49.1% in the second quarter to $27.58 billion, with the result estimated to translate into an EPS of $3.56. The solid financials are forecast to be driven by further growth in advertising revenues, as higher prices and greater demand from businesses amidst the drive to digitalize in the post-pandemic world feed Facebook’s top-line. Despite expectations of another strong set of results in Q2, there will be some key issues that may threaten sentiment towards the stock this quarter. Ongoing regulatory threats still overhang the future of Facebook, while monthly active user growth may fall due to the re-opening of the US economy in the last quarter.

Facebook technical analysis: bull trend in place as stock breaks to ATH

The technicals remain highly constructive for Facebook shares, hitting new all-time highs in recent days. Owing to strong company fundamentals, expectations of solid Q2 earnings, and a market backdrop that’s becoming increasingly supportive of growth and quality tech stocks, Facebook shares broke key price resistance around $360 last week, after investors took a brief challenge of its 50-day moving average to “buy-the-dip”. Going into this week’s results, the trend looks clearly skewed to the upside for Facebook shares. A hold above previous support and now resistance $360 will be key, before focus shifts perhaps to analysts consensus price target for the stock at $391.85.

    • Since the beginning of 2024, memecoin and AI projects have taken the crypto space by storm. Many memecoins have seen incredible adoption, with their market caps surging exponentially over the past few months. Notable examples include WIF, PEPE, and BOME, among others. Traders have shifted their focus to memecoins, drawn by their remarkable profit potential, surpassing even that of traditional BTC and altcoins. While trading memecoins can be highly lucrative, it is crucial to acknowledge the associated risks and conduct thorough research (DYOR). Some memecoins, like CAF and HMTT, have seen significant declines, resulting in substantial losses for traders. Identifying the right memecoin and the optimal time to trade is essential. As a trader always on the lookout for promising tokens, I recently discovered a memecoin with substantial potential: $LAIKA. Unlike others driven purely by social media hype, $LAIKA offers real utility. Its features include a mobile game, Laikaverse, LAIKA wallet, and DeFi (NFT staking), all contributing to its unique value proposition. Since its listing on Bitget a few hours ago, $LAIKA's price trend has been bullish. Several upcoming events provide traders with opportunities to enhance their holdings. I believe $LAIKA has the potential to emulate the success of $****, $WIF, or $DOG, but it's imperative to conduct your own research and avoid fear of missing out (FOMO). Personally, I see $LAIKA as a promising investment and would love to hear the opinions of other memecoin enthusiasts on this token.
    • Iinteresting, I've been watching the memecoin space for a while, and DOGE's success is hard to replicate. But a fast-growing project with a team that has some clout, especially with the Dogecoin Wallet founder on board, piques my interest. Right now, I'm actually busy exploring the treasure trove event on Bitget. The reward pool sounds pretty enticing, and with everything going on in the market, some extra crypto wouldn't hurt haha. I'll have to check out $JUNGLE more closely after I finish up with this event. Launching on Bitget is a good sign, and if they can truly capture that "sincerity and bravery" spirit, it could be something special
    • Awesome news for us Bitget users, especially those of us who already love the Bitget Wallet. I've been using it for a while now, and having everything from swapping to NFTs in one place is super convenient. Finally having a BWB token for the Bitget Wallet makes perfect sense. I'm excited to see how it fuels the growth of the whole ecosystem
