Facebook owner Meta's shares slump on earnings and costs


Recommended Posts

A rise in costs, headwinds from a failure to improve monetisation, and regulatory issues around access are all conspiring to drag down earnings at Meta Platforms. Both earnings and revenues were behind forecasts.

Meta crashes nearly 21%

Another big mover was Meta last night. We did see the Facebook parent company crash almost 21% in extended trade as it continues to feel the heat of regulation, the fallout from social media intrusion, and the inability to continue to maximize its monetisation potential.

Meta chart

I wanted to show you the chart here for Meta because it's a pretty dramatic decline that we have seen here. The big downside move here on the daily timeframe highlighting the break that we see in the weekly through this key support level, 12289, that brings the lowest level that we've seen in Meta stock for over six years now.

So this is a major collapse that we're seeing in this stock and it really does provide warning signs for a number of tech stocks that are hoping to maintain valuations based on previous earnings and revenues.

When you've got high multiples and you're now no longer creating those same kind of levels, whereas people are pricing in higher growth in the future, then you're going to have potentially big problems and that's exactly what we're seeing here for Facebook.


In terms of its numbers, we did see earnings per share (EPS) of $1.64 versus expectations of $1.93 for earnings per share. Revenues were at $27.71 billion versus estimations of $27.57bn.

In terms of active users, that's one thing that people have been keeping an eye out for..We did see it come in largely as expected.

    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
