18:00 EDTSSNLFFacebook executives pleased with China growth, hazy on Oculus launch
Speaking on the company's fourth quarter earnings conference call, Facebook (FB) Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg highlighted the company's more than 2.5M active advertisers as well as the growth of its Messenger and WhatsApp services, which have expanded to 800M and nearly 1B monthly users, respectively. More services will be coming soon to Messenger, Zuckerberg promised, including airline integration. The CEO noted he is "pleased" with initial consumer reaction to Samsung's (SSNLF) Gear VR virtual reality headset, though commentary on pre-orders for Facebook's own Oculus Rift device was notably light, with Zuckerberg saying only that the Oculus launch is "shaping up to be a big moment for the gaming community." Meanwhile, Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said the company is pleased with the growth its seeing in emerging markets, including China, where businesses are using Facebook to reach customers internationally. The commentary comes in contrast to the downbeat macro view voiced during Apple's (AAPL) conference call Tuesday night. Globally, 98 of the quarter's top 100 Facebook advertisers also chose to market on Instagram, Sandberg said, adding that as businesses realize they need to catch up to consumer shifts towards mobile, she foresees a "big" opportunity to continue growing advertiser count. ANALYST TAKE: Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster issued a post-earnings note on Facebook, reiterating his Overweight rating and $155 price target on the social network giant in the wake of its strong beat. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Facebook have surged 12.8% to $106.60 in after-hours trading. Other members of the FANG stock grouping are also moving higher, with Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Alphabet (GOOG) rising a respective 2.3%, 2.25% and 2.6%.
