Examining Facebook Share Prices Based On Quarterly Results And Major Platform Announcements

Facebook Share Prices Based On Quarterly Results

On May 18, 2012 Facebook launched its initial public offering (IPO) at a price per share of $38. Over the next year that share pricing would ping pong back and forth based on the company’s quarterly financial reports.

This week the company’s share prices finally reached over $38 for a short period of time before settling at $36.80.

Company CEO Mark Zuckerberg has long argued with investors over the future of his massive social network. Last year when mobile earnings were virtually non-existent Zuckerberg promised results.

Despite those promises Facebook quarterly results have often had negative effects on the company’s per share pricing.

Facebook’s shares per price hovered around $25 for the last several months but skyrocketed recently after Zuck and company announced that mobile advertising has rapidly increased and that commercial-type ads are on their way.

The team at Statista recently examined how Facebook shares have increased and decreased based on quarterly results and major Facebook platform upgrades.
