Facebook Reports Earnings Wednesday. Do Shares Still Have Room to Run?

Social darling Facebook (NASDAQ: FB  ) is set to report earnings this Wednesday. The consensus analyst estimate is for Facebook to report about $1.9 billion in revenue, with earnings per share of $0.18. This would be about 50% revenue growth on a year-over-year basis, most of which will come from growth in advertising.

Investors will have to continue to watch mobile ad growth. Mobile ad revenue accounted for 41% of Facebook's ad revenue last quarter, which helped fuel the massive rally in Facebook shares so far this year. The stock has climbed nearly 90% year to date. Investors should also keep an eye on the total number of monthly active mobile users.

Despite the enormous rally in Facebook shares this year, tech bureau chief Evan Niu believes Facebook still has a long runway for growth opportunities. In this segment of Tech Teardown, Erin Kennedy discusses Facebook's upcoming earnings report with Evan.

    If Amazon share can go over $300 With NO earnings, there is reason to think FB share can continue to move up with serious growth and solid earnings. As the author said the runway is very long for FB!
