February 4, 2004 in the walls of one of the most prestigious educational institutions of the United States, Harvard, founded the largest to date in the world of social network - Facebook.
The main inspiration of the project was a young student Mark Zuckerberg, whose assistants were his roommates: Dustin Moskovitz, Chris Hughes and Eduardo Saverin. a film about the incredible ascent of Olympus Financial founder of Facebook called "The Social Network" was filmed in 2010. Already in 2014, the website audience in the past month amounted to 1.32 billion people.
Two years earlier, in 2012 the company acquired the increasingly popular photo service Instagram for $ 1 billion. In the same year, on May 18, Facebook held an IPO on the NASDAQ electronic exchange for $ 38 per share. In one day, the company and its shareholders attracted $ 16 billion, a record among technology companies. Currently Facebook focuses on the promotion of technologies of augmented virtual reality with glasses Oculus Rift.
The last financial report for the fourth quarter 2015 was held January 27, 2016. earnings per share ratio was 0.79 against 0.62 forecast. The company's revenue totaled $ 5.84 billion against $ 5.35, which is also regarded as a positive factor for the growth of capitalization.
The next release for the first quarter of this year is scheduled for April 20. The forecast EPS of 0.62, revenue $ 5.24 billion. It should also be borne in mind that in the beginning of April started selling glasses virtual reality Oculus Rift, which will certainly improve the fundamental data of the company.
At the moment, after testing the price level in $ 117.50, the share price corrected, trading volumes also declined recently 70 million shares per trading session up to 25-30 million. The next line of support is at around $ 110.30 per share. In view of the strong upward trend, which is more than three months, as well as the lack of technical and graphic signs of the end of the trend, we continue to follow the trend. We started to buy the paper with a mark of $ 110.30 with an indicative yield of the market near the $ 117.00.
Long-term goal - a growth stock to $ 125.00 per share when the price crosses the resistance line of $ 117.50, which is quite realistic given the average daily volatility of the asset.
