11:09 EDTFBFacebook sinks after unveiling 2015 spending plans
Shares of Facebook (FB) are retreating after the company announced stronger than expected results but said its expenses would jump 50%-70% in 2015 compared to this year. A number of analysts remained upbeat on the company's outlook following its results and guidance. WHAT'S NEW: Facebook's third quarter earnings per share came in at 43c, above the consensus estimate of 40c. The company's revenue came in slightly above expectations. The social networking giant said that its monthly active users had risen 14% in Q3 versus the same period a year earlier to 1.35B. But the company added that its expenses would surge 50%-70% in fiscal 2015, compared with fiscal 2014. Facebook reported that it plans to invest in various new technologies, including artificial intelligence and virtual reality. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali wrote that the stock and the company's margins would likely be pressured in the near-term by its spending plans. But Facebook's outlook is still strong and its valuation is compelling, the analyst stated. Moreover, Facebook's margins should remain healthy, and its results were "excellent," he wrote. Squali cut his price target on the name to $80 from $82, but kept a Buy rating on the shares. Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs analyst Heather Bellini wrote that Facebook's spending next year is likely to come in below its guidance, as in the past, while the company's ad platform continues to have strong momentum. Facebook's ability to attract users across multiple devices and platforms is unparalleled and should enable the company to attract more ad dollars, the analyst wrote. She believes that the weakness in the stock today has created a buying opportunity. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Facebook fell 6% to $76.

13:51 EDTFBEarnings Preview: Analysts positive on Facebook ahead of Q3 earnings
Facebook (FB) is expected to report third quarter earnings after the market close on Tuesday, October 28 with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Facebook is a social networking service with over 1B active users. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 40c on revenue of $3.12B. The consensus range is 34c-47c for EPS, and $2.94B-$3.23B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Facebook reported second quarter EPS of 42c against estimates of 34c, on revenue of $2.9B against estimates of $2.81B. The company reported daily active users of 829M on average for June, with mobile daily active users up 31% to 654M in March. Facebook said mobile ad revenue represented 62% of ad revenue and the company now has 1.5M active advertisers. Facebook said its Q2 price per ad was up 123% and it will focus on quality in roll-out of video ads. At the Q2 earnings conference call, Facebook said its push into commerce and payments is supplemental to advertising. NEWS: Facebook closed on its previously announced acquisition of WhatsApp for $22B, up $3B from its $19B price point due to the increased value in Facebook's stock over the past few months. CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he expects WhatsApp to reach 3B users, although the company does not have any imminent targets to gross any monetary funds from the platform. In the past quarter, Facebook also acquired security start-up PrivateCore and was in talks with major studios for content for Oculus Rift. The company shut down its Gifts business, but launched Atlas ad measuring platform and cross-device reporting for ads. It also announced a new research framework with stricter guidelines with a review panel, a six-week training program, and a research website. STREET RESEARCH: Ahead of Q3 earnings, Deutsche Bank recommended adding to Facebook positions, saying its proprietary checks on the company have been "solid all quarter." Oppenheimer said Facebook will likely beat Q3 expectations based on strong monetization trends. Cowen said Facebook is the premier social advertising platform, believing its numbers will continue to grow, especially on mobile devices. Citigroup said Q3 estimates have potential upside, thinking Facebook is seeing continued positive business momentum. Baird believes Facebook is well positioned to take market share in the display market, which is core to the firm's long-term positive view of the company. Evercore raised Facebook's price target based on the relaunch of the Atlas ad server platform that allows advertisers to better measure ad effectiveness across mobile and desktop in addition to providing new Display buying tools. PRICE ACTION: Facebook shares have gained over 13%, since the first day of trading following the company's Q2 report. In Tuesday afternoon trading ahead of its Q3 report, Facebook shares are up fractionally.

12:55 EDTFBFacebook technical notes ahead of results
The shares have been strong outperformers in the last three months, trading up over 7%. Shares are close to the life high at $81.16 with an expectation that the company will deliver a strong report. Without overhead resistance, a report that exceeds already high expectations could push the stock into the $85 to $90 area depending on the degree of surprise. If there is a disappointment the first key level on a test would be at $70.32, a recent low of the trading range for the last three months. Additional support below would be at $67.56. News that fails to push the shares above the old high or below $70 would leave it range-bound in a neutral trend.
