These Are The Three Charts That Just Sent Twitter Plunging After Hours

Tyler Durden's picture

Moments ago Twitter just reported blockbuster earnings that beat expectations across the board, and guided higher:

  • Q4 revenue of $243 million, up 116% year-over-year, beating estimates of $218 million
  • Q4 GAAP EPS of ($1.41) and non-GAAP EPS of $0.02, beating estimates of ($0.02)
  • Q4 net loss of $511 million and non-GAAP net income of $10 million
  • Q4 adjusted EBITDA of $45 million, representing an adjusted EBITDA margin of 18%
  • Sees Q1 revenue of $230-$240 million, higher than the consensus estimate of $214.9 million

In other words everything was great, with TWTR beating everything and the stock should be soaring right?

Well, it was for a few minutes.... Until the algos read the following chart from the earnings slidedeck:

Yup: just 1 million monthly active users added in the US in 1 quarter and just 9 million in the entire world added in the quarter, far less than 15 milion additions expected (to a total 247MM).

And as an added bonus, this chart of timeline views, which reported the first quarterly contraction, certainly did not help either.


Finally, the trend is certainly not the momo-chasers friend here either:

As a result, this is what happened with TWTR stock after hours:

Twatter has a market cap of 30 billion USD @ present and should become truly profitable with a true P/E ratio of anything less than 8000x IF it adds 10 million users a month, each month, for the next consecutive 287 months, and IF it is able to somehow monetize its business model remunerated revenue at a ratio 43x present levels.

Buy Twatter shares early, now, or regret it forever. Buy, Zynga, FaceFuk, GroupFuk, etc., or regret not buying these Winners Of The New World v.2.0 FOREVER!

TWTR, shining knight of the 'new' economy. How many employees they have again? And p/e? Ah fuck it, who cares.

Thousands of users, no revenue

Millions of users, no revenue

Tens of millions of users and no revenue

But the promise is always that they'll make it on volume.

Then the massive user base flattens and still no revenue

Finally Wall St. turns against it and no revenue

A bull market with no leadership.  wonerfulluh.

The Great John Neff would not be amused.  He always liked to ask the bulls, so what are the drivers?

that's how Amazon has been rolling for years... only Amazon actually delivers tangible items

So narcissism and exhibitionism are intangible?

Hmm, a fscking cow and Beiber -- most disturbing, mate!

That's my problem with Amazon, they don't actually deliver anything.  They don't make anything.  Sometimes they are warehousing items first, sometimes they don't even do that.  Do they have any moat at all?  Why do manufacturers feel the need to let Amazon take their .0005% cut?

You gotta have the firepower to put down all the postal customers that complain about it taking 7 days to deliver a 2-Day Priority package.

They're worried about postal customers going postal.

Wouldn't surprise me if the one company right now that has more ammo than anyone else at any given time is UPS.

I don't know anyone who uses twitter, seriously, except one or two guys for work cheerleading purposes, o, and Jeff Rich the EMEA lawyer guy who recently joined Twitter from Facebook....actually he just counts his stock options while whistling in the bathtub..

I don't know anyone who uses it either.   The newspeople and the tv have been pushing it for years; however.      Hmmmmm???????

$30 -BILLION- market cap with $10 -million- net income and $45 -million- EBITDA.    WTF.  Are you kidding me?

My own business with <100 employees has seen nearly similar results.    Where do I get my $30 BILLION???   Ridiculous.

Ulterior's picture

to get 30billion you must create a website with messaging service, simple as that

You forgot HLF. It gives the sheeple modern poweruser the power they need to be on top of modernity. New World 2.0 without Carl's and George's HLF?! Bah, loser!
