Twitter will release its Q1 2014 earnings report after the closing bell today (Tuesday), and while the market will be looking for growth in revenue, a strong earnings per share (EPS) number and a boost in ad sales, only one metric really matters: monthly active users (MAU).
Twitter has just reported it first-ever post-IPO earnings and they’ve significantly beaten analyst expectations, with Q4 2013 revenue of almost $243 million, up 116 percent year-on-year, and a positive earnings per share (EPS) of 2 cents.
Analysts had expected a loss of 2 cents per share and $218 million Q4 revenue.
Twitter’s first post-IPO earnings report is due on the close of business today and, with the company’s stock up more than 150 percent above its IPO price and hovering bullishly not far from all-time highs, investors are eagerly awaiting something from Twitter that will justify its fairly loft valuation.
Two things to watch in this earnings report are signs of growth in overall ad revenues, and also a boost in total user base numbers.
