Today's stock - Facebook, Inc. (FB)

The earnings season is on us again and it's time to look at making some money. Amazon and Google have already blown the charts away, so it would be stupid to not react to it and make some investments based on it.
Facebook is by far the most prudent and safest bet to make at this time. Facebook has been blowing away earnings left and right for multiple quarters now, and it has never failed to deliver.
It's advertising revenue is in the same league as Google, and that itself is a safety net.
I would certainly push to bet on Facebook for the upcoming 3rd May earnings.
And I wouldn't be surprised if it pops, but in any case Facebook is a great long term buy as well. For many reasons:
1. The stock has been doing great and has a solid earnings. Revenue is ad based and user based, and they have been growing consistently over the years in the same
2. They own Instagram, Whats-app and Oculus. All of these have great potential and are the perfect positions to diversify in
3. The stock is looking at a split. The split will certainly be a way to make the stock more affordable, thereby pushing its price further up.
4. And of course, it kills competition, the way we have seen it to be the one app being used ubiquitously.

Looking at the numbers itself is a very good way to figure the next move. It has been successful in mobile ad revenue, monetizing the app, getting users hooked onto it, and creating a platform for development and advertising.

Here is the historical price depicting the growth, and the financials for the last three years. They themselves tell a great story

Having invested in this, lets take a look at the portfolio.


JNUG has offset based on the stock rise, and will hedge against the growth. So that should be fine.
The rest of them seem to be doing well.
As always, stop losses are key, so make sure you have them set based on your risk.
