15:24 EDTFBFacebook technical comments ahead of results
The shares have been stuck in a range of $59 at the low to a high of $65 since hitting peak price in early March. These bounds of range give us a guide for knowing when shares will have resolved, bullishly or bearishly. On better than expected news, a breakout above $65 would confirm that the shares are back on a bullish footing. Similarly, a breakdown below $59 would be an indication of deteriorating technicals and would be bearish for price. Resistance above $65 is at $67.09, and then at $69.63. Support below $59 is at $56.30, and then at $53.53.

12:52 EDTFBEarnings Preview: Facebook shares up more than 15% since last earnings report
Facebook (FB) is expected to report first quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, April 23 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 24c on revenue of $2.36B. The consensus range is 19c-30c for EPS, and $2.14B-$2.52B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Facebook reported fourth quarter EPS of 31c against estimates of 27c, on revenue of $2.59B against estimates of $2.33B. The company reported daily active users of 757M on average for December, with Q4 revenue from advertising up 76% year-over-year to $2.34B. Mobile advertising revenue in Q4 represented 53% of the advertising revenue. NEWS: Facebook acquired messaging service WhatsApp for $16B, believing it is on a "clear path" to having 1B users and CEO Mark Zuckerberg saying it is "probably" worth more than $19B. WhatsApp recently announced that there are half a billion regular users of the app. Facebook also acquired Oculus for $2B, and the Wall Street Journal reported it acquired Titan Aerospace for an undisclosed amount. In the past quarter, Instagram reported over 200M monthly active users by the end of March. STREET RESEARCH: Analysts were mixed on Facebook's acquisition of WhatsApp. Piper Jaffray said the acquisition was neutral at best and is "beyond the typical overpaying." Facebook was downgraded at Argus due to possible risks in acquisition including a substantial write down should the texting platform not reach a billion users. Jeffries, on the other hand, said the acquisition could disrupt the global paid messaging industry. JMP Securities adds the acquisition is highly strategic and Stifel says it helps mute the risk that Google (GOOG) could enter the social media and communications market in a real way. The company's price target was raised at Sterne Agee, UBS, and Citigroup following the acquisition with Sterne Agee saying the application could reach 2B users and generate ARPU of $2.50 at 80% margins over the long-term. Analysts were more positive on the Oculus acquisition, with Piper Jaffray calling it a "major offensive move for the future" and JMP Securities saying it could create new opportunities over the next 5-10 years. Pacific Crest, however, says Facebook is unlikely to receive a significant return on the deal any time soon. Ahead of Q1 earnings, SunTrust says shares should be bought due to a rebounding revenue growth. Deutsche Bank and JMP Securities say that consensus estimates are catching up and the strong Q1 results may have already been factored into the consensus numbers. PRICE ACTION: Facebook shares have gained over $8.00, or over 15%, since the first day of trading following the company's Q4 report. In Wednesday afternoon trading ahead of its Q1 report, Facebook shares are down 2.25%.
