CNBC’s Julia Boorstin looks at Facebook earnings and after-hours trading. With CNBC’s Scott Wapner and the Fast Money traders, Tim Seymour, Brian Kelly, Dan Nathan and Guy Adami.

Facebook beat on top and bottom lines, but the stock fell more than 7% on Wednesday after the company reported rising costs and expenses and a narrowing operating margin.

Here are the key numbers:

Earnings (EPS): $2.56 vs. $2.53 per share forecast by Refinitiv.
Revenue: $21.08 billion vs. $20.89 billion forecast by Refinitiv.
Daily active users (DAUs): 1.66 billion vs. 1.65 billion forecast by FactSet.
Monthly active users (DAUs): 2.5 billion vs. 2.5 billion forecast by FactSet.
Average revenue per user (ARPU): $8.52 vs. $8.38 forecast by FactSet.
Facebook’s full-year 2019 costs and expenses came in at $46.71 billion, up 51% compared to its total in 2018. That coincides with a drop in the company’s operating margin, which fell from 45% in 2018 to 34% in 2019.

Facebook reported revenue growth of nearly 24.7% compared to a year prior, making it the fourth straight quarter that the company delivered sub-30% growth. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg announced that the company now has more than 8 million advertisers, up from 7 million in October 2019.

The company on Wednesday also announced a $10 billion share repurchase program.

“We had a good quarter and a strong end to the year as our community and business continue to grow,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement. “We remain focused on building services that help people stay connected to those they care about.”

Facebook said it counts more than 2.89 billion monthly users across its family of apps, compared to 2.8 billion in the previous quarter. This metric is used to measure Facebook’s total user base across its main app, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp.

In the U.S. and Canada, Facebook’s user base rose to 190 million from 189 million a quarter earlier. Its user base in Europe increased to 294 million from 288 million daily active users in the prior quarter.

    "Where else can you get this kind of growth?" Pretty simple Bitcoin, which gas grown 100s of times faster than Facebook, and halving is just 3 months away.

  16. Avatar MeekOps says:

    Facebook still has excellent financials as a company. Long term it will be fine

  17. Invest in good, ethical companies like Tesla. Not Facebook

  18. Avatar iTuber012 says:

    I'm holding Tesla, Alibaba, iQiyi and taking gambles on Change Healthcare and Nio

    One of my favorite new investing apps is called M1 Finance. M1 Finance combines the automation of a robo-advisor like Acorns with the customization and control of a full-service online brokerage, and the service is entirely FREE for individual investors. I like to think of it as a combination of both Robinhood and Acorns. If I had to choose only one app to use to invest in the stock market, I would definitely pick M1 Finance. (They also allow you to open a ROTH IRA!)

    Try it today and get $10 to invest!

    I also buy publicly traded companies via an app called Robinhood. It is FREE to buy shares but not as automated as M1 Finance.

    ROBINHOOD announced they are now adding Crypto trading for FREE in 2018! Signup with my link below and Robinhood will give you 1 share of a company for FREE!

    In my opinion, it's too late for Bitcoin, buy Ripple XRP, Litecoin, EOS, OmiseGo(OMG), and Stellar Lumens XLM coins. To invest in the blockhain technology itself, look at $IBM

    When I first started dabbling in Cryptos, I got my feet wet with an app called Coinbase (the most user friendly to use for a beginner). You simply connect your bank account with Coinbase to start buying and selling Bitcoin and other cryptos, which you can send to anyone in the world just like you would an email.

    It’s free to create a Coinbase digital wallet, plus you can get $10 worth of BTC for free if you use my link below!

    Another way to earn cryptocurrency is to mine it. You essentially leave your computer on and earn crypto by allowing the various cryptocurrency networks to use your computer's processing power to confirm transactions.  This is essentially a free way to earn cryptocurrency though there are the costs of electricity for letting your computer run.  The program I use for this that is the most simple is called Honeyminer.  With honeyminer, all mined coins are converted to Bitcoin and your balance will increase daily.  You can keep it as an investment or sell it for cash anytime you want.  Signup with my referral link and you will receive a nice bitcoin bonus immediately for signing up! If you sign up without a referral link you'll start with $0 so might as well take the bonus!

    But if cryptos aren't your thing, and you'd like to become rich fast you should start a business! If you can't start a business, you should at least be saving money to leave to the next generation.

    I save for retirement and other goals through automation. Automation is like passive saving. it just happens and i don't have to do anything!

    I use an app called Acorns. It automatically takes small amounts money out of your account here and there and invests it into a broad holding of stocks via Vanguard(You'll get $5 to start through Acorns if you use this invite as well: )

    Just set it and forget it!

  19. Its not growing because everyone in the USA and Canada is already using it. Next question
