Facebook continues strong earnings streak (and WhatsApp and Instagram aren’t even making real money yet)

Gigaom

Facebook beat analyst expectations for the ninth straight quarter in its third quarter earnings report Tuesday. Here are the numbers:

Revenue:

Analysts expected — $3.12 billion

Facebook actual — $3.20 billion

Earnings per share:

Analysts expected — $0.40

Facebook actual — $0.43

Monthly active users:

2nd quarter 2014: 1.32 billion

This quarter: 1.35 billion

Despite Facebook’s strong showing, its stock dipped a bit — 2 percent — in after-hours trading. Investors may have hoped for accelerated user growth, and Facebook’s user acquisition decelerated this quarter (just as it did at [company]Twitter[/company]). That deceleration was by less than one percent, though.

Stock fell even further during the earnings call, down ten percent, possibly because Facebook had conservative estimates for its revenue during the holiday quarter.
