Facebook Stock Price Has Outpaced Twitter’s Stock Price But Will That Be The Case Much Longer?

The social media industry over the past decade or so has been defined by two companies. If you guessed Facebook (FB) and Twitter (TWTR), you’d be right. However, the growth trajectories of the two companies have been quite different.

Over the course of this period, the FB stock price surged ahead on the back of huge advertising revenue. The TWTR stock price found itself grappling with revenue issues for many years. That being said, the recent troubles faced by FB stock with regards to user privacy issues and TWTR stock’s recent turnaround has opened up the debate about the better stock once again.

Tech Stock Report | Two Massive Growth Industries, One Choice For Investors

Facebook (FB) Stock Price In Focus

Facebook is a social media behemoth. Following the acquisition of Instagram and WhatsApp, it’s likely stronger than ever. The combined monthly active users in its three platforms and Messenger are pegged at 2.7 billion. Therefore it’s not a surprise that the company commands a market cap of $500 billion.

Although the revenues are strong, Facebook has been in the middle of a slew of troubles over the past three years. That includes users’ privacy issues, hate speech and dodgy political campaign ads. These troubles plunged Facebook into disarray. However, it seems that the company’s entry into the cryptocurrency space could breathe new life. This comes with its digital coin Libra.

Twitter (TWTR) Stock Price Set For A Turnaround

On the other hand, Twitter stock price has made a remarkable comeback. This came after TWTR stock appeared to have sunk into irrelevance as the Facebook juggernaut continued its charge. The company revamped its platform and weeded out profiles that had been involved in unscrupulous activities. In addition, Twitter clamped down on hate speech severely.

Special Report | Delivery Technology Investors Are Taking Notice Of

Analysts also believe that United States President Donald Trump’s extensive usage of Twitter has proven to be a major boost. Twitter’s revenue grew 18% year on year in Q1 2019. More importantly, there was an 11% growth in monetizable daily active usage.

It’s also important to add that after years of reporting losses, the company is definitely a profitable one now. Twitter posted a $190.8 million profit in Q1 2019. The commitment to improve its platform and grow advertising revenue has proven to be an excellent decision. When it comes to choosing between Twitter and Facebook, which do you feel is stronger?

DIS stocks to buy Disney +

There is no doubt that 2019 and the years beyond are going to be definite by the ‘streaming wars’ between some of the biggest companies in the world. The imminent entry of a behemoth like Disney (DIS) has raised the stakes even higher and on Thursday the entertainment company made another significant announcement.

During the company’s conference call for the fourth-quarter earnings, the Chief Executive Officer of Disney Bob Iger stated that the streaming serving Disney+ is going to be available on Amazon Fire TV.

Major Development For Content Providers

This is a major development, considering the fact that Disney had earlier said that the service might not be available on products owned by Amazon due to advertising disagreements.

However, that is not all. Iger went on to state that the service will also be made available on Smart TV manufactures by LG and Samsung. During the conference call, the Disney CEO said, “We’re pleased to announce partnerships with Amazon Fire [TV], LG, and Samsung devices.”

It is a major development for a streaming service that is trying to capture market share quickly from Netflix. Availability on Amazon Fire makes it accessible to a far bigger pool of potential customers. That is why this particular announcement is so important.

Where Does This Leave Netflix?

There are certain added benefits of the availability of Amazon Fire TV. The Disney+ app has the ability to sync with the built-in search engine on Amazon. Therefore, users will be able to request particular content by stating it to the personal assistant Alexa.

It goes without saying that the development has come as a big boost for Disney+. It’s ahead of the much-anticipated launch on November 12. The price of the service sits cheaper than Netflix’s cheapest package. It’s also going to be a highly cut-throat battle between the two companies. That said, other services are also coming soo. The ‘streaming wars’ are going to be the theme of 2020.

With Biotech Continuing Higher, Are These Buys Or Sells This Week?

Biotech penny stocks have proven to be one of the best sectors for investments. That’s as far as the stock market is concerned. If experts are to be believed then it may continue to be among the best options in the years to come. That being said, it does not mean that investing in biotech stocks is an easy ride.

An investor needs to conduct a lot of research and also watch the market closely. Similar to other high-risk industries, volatility is a big factor. At any given point in time, a bad report could send stocks plummeting. Similarly, one good DA report can trigger a monster move. Here is a quick look at a few biotech penny stocks which made moves recently. Will they be better stocks to buy or avoid this month?

GT Biopharma Inc. (GTBP)

This company’s stock made new 3 month highs on October 22. GT Biopharma (GTBP) announced that its solid tumor targeting TriKE killed a non-small cell lung cancer tumor cell. This is a major development news for the company’s TriKE platform because the market potential for non-small lung cancer is big.

biotech stock to watch 2019

Non-small lung cancer accounts for 84% of all lung cancer diagnoses. Shareholders clearly felt this way, which may have been why GT Biopharma’s stock shot up by more than 25%.

There could be another potential reason why stockholders are reacting this way to the recent news. Earlier in October, the company announced that the design of HIV-TriKE was able to successfully target the HIV-Env protein.

This would allow the company’s TriKE technology to eliminate replicating HIV infected cells. Because of the success of TriKE with lung cancer cells, investors might feel that the company will be able to successfully destroy HIV cells.

WHAT CURING CANCER & HIV COULD MEAN FOR THIS COMPANY, ITS INVESTORS & THE WORLD!

Pieris Pharmaceuticals (PIRS)

The first stock to consider in the biotech sector with regards to the latest movements is that of Pieris Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:PIRS). Back on November 5, the company announced that dose escalation monotherapy data with regards to one of its products is going to be presented at the Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) Annual Meeting that is going to be held at National Harbor, Maryland.

The medicine in question is PRS-343, which is meant for treating HER2-positive solid tumors. It goes without saying that it is a positive development and the Pieris stock has reacted positively to the news as well. Since the news broke, the stock has gained as much as 10%.

Foamix Pharmaceuticals (FOMX)

The other biotech stock that has been on a tear for much of the week is the Foamix Pharmaceuticals Ltd (NASDAQ:FOMX) stock. Back on October 18, the company announced that one of its products known as AMZEEQ has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration. The medicine in question is a topical foam and is meant for treating inflammatory lesions in both adults as well as pediatric patients, who are older than 9. That was the initial trigger for the rise in the stock price.

Last week, the company also published a peer review of the long term open-label safety of AMZEEQ and that proved to be the trigger for the rally. During the course of the week so far, the Foamix stock has soared by as much as 60%. This is a stock that should definitely be tracked by investors.
