With the addition of Snapchat to the public market, people have been focusing on this sector recently. Companies that play within this space is Twitter, Snapchat, and the company we’re reviewing tonight, Facebook. Facebook is certainly the most dominant company in this market as the most people use it. No matter the age, it has grown to be widely accepted by all. Right now, advertising is the topic because the price to advertise on Facebook is cheap compared to the other outlets out there.

Facebook Continues to Stand Its Ground as Competition Grows

Taking a look at the 8-K report, let us take a look at the most recent numbers. Instead of the fundamentals, let us look at the user base and see how it’s progressed. Daily active users were 1.23 billion on average for December 2016, an increase 18% year-over-year. Mobile daily active users were 1.15 billion on average for December 2016, an increased of 23% year-over-year. Lastly, monthly active users were 1.86 billion as of December 31, 2016, which is an increase of 17% year-over-year. These are numbers worth paying attention to because it will determine the continued success of the company.

Now, taking a look at the chart using the monthly time frame, we can see that price has done nothing but grow, which is indicative of their current path. Facebook is the leader in the social media space and will continue to do so until someone can come up with a better product. The chart has been increasing for awhile but I believe it is following the overall health of the company. Looking at the chart, everything seems well and there are no reasons to run.




Risks

For a full list of risks, take a look at the most recent 10-K report, as this will give you details on the risks the company finds relevant. For now, here are a couple to keep in mind while completing your research. First, the company has to maintain their user base because if they begin to shift or go elsewhere, the will no longer have a company. Secondly, innovation is key as these companies change at a rapid pace and will continue to do so as long as the technology allows. The risks are there and they will change quickly so be on your toes by reading the latest reports.

Conclusion

Facebook is the leader in the social media space and will be until someone can come up with a widely accepted product. Until then, be sure to complete your research and determine if this is a good investment for your portfolio. If you still have questions, be sure to reach out to an investing professional as they can help point you in the right direction.
