Taking a look at the 8-K report, let us take a look at the most recent numbers. Instead of the fundamentals, let us look at the user base and see how it’s progressed. Daily active users were 1.23 billion on average for December 2016, an increase 18% year-over-year. Mobile daily active users were 1.15 billion on average for December 2016, an increased of 23% year-over-year. Lastly, monthly active users were 1.86 billion as of December 31, 2016, which is an increase of 17% year-over-year. These are numbers worth paying attention to because it will determine the continued success of the company.

Now, taking a look at the chart using the monthly time frame, we can see that price has done nothing but grow, which is indicative of their current path. Facebook is the leader in the social media space and will continue to do so until someone can come up with a better product. The chart has been increasing for awhile but I believe it is following the overall health of the company. Looking at the chart, everything seems well and there are no reasons to run.




Risks

Secondly, innovation is key as these companies change at a rapid pace and will continue to do so as long as the technology allows. The risks are there and they will change quickly so be on your toes by reading the latest reports.
