Tackle Today: Meta Makes the Nasdaq go BOOM!
February 2, 2023
«Up 2.5% at the open is no small feat.»
Meta Platforms delivered earnings last night, and the market absolutely loved it. Its shares jumped over 20% and sent tech stocks leaping in sympathy. The Nasdaq ETF is up 2.5% right out of the gate this morning, steamrolling shorts and placing its price well above the 200-day and 50-weekly moving averages. We’ve now climbed above all moving averages on the daily and weekly time frames.
For the fourth quarter, Meta earned $1.76 per share on revenue of $32.17 billion. Facebook’s parent company also announced a $40 billion stock buyback and said it expects sales to be as high as $28.5 billion in Q1. If reached, it would end Meta’s streak of year-over-year revenue declines.
Investors will now look to Apple, Amazon, and Alphabet to keep the good vibes going.
