Facebook share price forecast q3: What happend on q2?
So what happened the last time when Facebook announced their 2nd quarterly result this year? Well their earnings of the second quarter beat the expectations of Wall Street. As the result of that outcome the share price of Facebook started to increase until the Chinese stock market started to crash and took the world wide stock market down with it. When the worries about the Chinese market stopped, the US and European markets started to grow again and so did Facebook.

Facebook share price forecast q3: According to a note from Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali, Wall Street is expecting Facebook’s ad revenue to have grown 41.2% year-over-year in Q3 to $4.176 billion, representing a growth path that is nearly three times faster than the overall ad market, but also marking a deceleration from 43% growth in the prior quarter. The company’s mobile ad revenue is expected to rise to nearly 80% ($3.338 billion) from 76% in the prior quarter and “virtually zero” in early 2012, according to that note.

The expectations for Facebook share price forecast seems to be high this time. I think it would be tough to beat but I must take note that Facebook is putting effort to gain the engagement for the their platform users and at the same time they working on creating new services for their customers. So there is a good chance that their monthly total active users will be bigger then what most experts thinks.
