Facebook and Microsoft released earnings after the Closing Bell today. The two tech companies beat expectations for both revenue and earnings per share.
Microsoft saw growth across the board, including in their cloud sector. Intelligent Cloud revenue rose 15% to $7.8 billion.
For Facebook, the social media still had strong earnings despite changing their news feed algorithm. Despite wins on both revenue and EPS, shares fell after the bell.
Keenan Beasley is the co-founder of BLKBOX, a marketing and intelligence agency that works closely with Facebook. Beasley joins Cheddar to give his take on Facebook earnings. Beasley is impressed by the increase of active users and believes ad revenue will just continue to grow. Beasley expects Facebook to produce less ads, but each advertisement will be more valuable, more expensive to buy, and therefore create higher profits for Facebook.
