Social Media Stock Earnings: Expectations for FB, TWTR, LNKD

Looking for insights into the volatile social media sector ahead of earnings? Make sure to watch our video to figure out where this space might be heading in the next few days as they report. 

First up is Twitter (TWTR), a company that could have a very rocky report if it cannot deliver on earnings or user growth figures. This might be a case where revenues and growth are the real metrics to watch, while the earnings might not matter as much to near term performance, though we look at how recent earnings estimates have been coming in for this stock.  

Following that is the gold standard of the social media world, Facebook (FB). This stock currently has a buy rating, but recent estimates have been trickling lower. Growth will be key in this stock too, though their other divisions—such as What’s App or Occulus Rift—could start to have an impact as well. We take a look at the recent charts for a bit more discussion of FB’s path ahead. 

And finally, LinkedIn (LNKD) is also due up later in this week, and really could be the one to watch. Recent estimates have been a lot better for LNKD, but the stock remains a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) heading into the report. We take a look at the chart and discuss why this one might continue to be volatile following its next earnings report. 

Make sure to watch our short video for a more in-depth discussion of these companies, and which are looking the most (and least) promising this earnings season!
