Facebook Shares are to be written off

Yesterday Facebook announced the results have raised hopes for a short time idle. The company is reported slightly better than expected results, both at the level of sales and profits and the number of customers. The share price suddenly increased by 8% to 29 USD. Yet in the wake showed that the reason to celebrate none. Investors get is much needed perspective in the form of a crutch, where Facebook is heading. Reaction -12% after the conclusion of trade says it all.

The reasons for concern are countless, but Facebook also offers some interesting opportunities. The biggest concern is the pace of future growth. The subscription price at the IPO indicated that the growth in sales and profit growth to surpass several competitors to match the realities of business valuation. But the reality seems to be different. The annual growth rate reached 32%, the lowest figure for the time what Facebook publishes statements.This revenue growth is in stark contrast to the increase in cost or number of employees. For example, marketing costs rose by 280% and the number of employees grew by 50%. It only refers to the temporary inability of companies to effectively generate sales, respectively. profit. Other risks, such as very low percentage of clicks on banners or potential risks associated with litigation on personal data protection are equally important, but let's focus now on the opportunities that are before Facebook.

Crucial to the future and the only way to significantly promote the company's value (share price), the revenues from advertising on mobile devices. For more than half of the 955 million Facebook users is running on mobile devices, but in the past year, the contribution to revenues from mobile advertising zero.An application that displays advertisements on the mobile version of Facebook, was introduced in February this year. There is no doubt that the potential in this segment is huge, but yet unexplored, and "vague." On the other hand, it is clear that the sales / profits of the company will accrue gradually. The potential is in the company is, just does not meet the expectations of investors, the firm quickly enough, which is reflected in the declining share price (however extreme expectations set the company itself high subscription price).

Negative reaction to yesterday's results is not inconceivable, but where the decline stopped? In my opinion, be strong in the short term psychological threshold level of $ 20.Essential for long-term development of the shares should be the next quarterly results in October, which would already be reflected in the management of revenues from advertising on mobile devices, but also would begin to have a positive impact on the costs incurred research and development, which grew by 600 %! From the above it is clear to me that it is premature to write off this title.
