The three major U.S. stock indexes opened lower on Thursday, with the Nasdaq down nearly 4% and Meta losing more than $230 billion in market value in a single day, under the influence of Meta earnings “thunder” and the acceleration of monetary policy tightening by major global central banks.After the market closed Wednesday, Facebook announced its first quarterly earnings since it renamed its parent company Meta Platforms in October. Meta Platforms’ fourth-quarter revenue rose 20% from a year earlier, slightly beating expectations.The year-over-year decline in earnings per share was double market expectations and marked the first net profit decline since the second quarter of 2019;Key user metrics were weaker than expected.Meanwhile, Meta’s metasurverse business posted a net loss of $10.19 billion for the full year of 2021, which also dampened investor confidence.More pessimistically, revenue guidance for the first quarter of this year is weak, with revenue expected to grow 3% year-over-year, compared with 48% for the same period last year.The guidance calls into question not only Meta’s growth prospects, but also a shift in the online advertising industry as a whole and consumer behavior.It appears that Meta’s core business is experiencing major problems: declining user adoption, difficult monetization, inflation and supply bottlenecks affecting advertiser budgets, and continued negative impact on its AD pricing power from Apple’s privacy changes.Meta Platform (formerly Facebook) believes that building a meta-universe is an expensive gamble.Meta reports a $10.19 billion investment/impairment loss in Reality Labs in 2021, and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is optimistic that some aspects of the metasverse have translated into “achievements,” changing the ticker symbol from FB to Meta.2. TikTok brings new spending points to Meta.Meta executives have repeatedly talked about the challenges their short video product, Reels, faces with TikTok, which is particularly popular with young people.Meta believes the company can improve the monetization of Reels over time.3. “Conservative” Facebook may be stuck with stagnant user growth, with 2.91 billion monthly active users (MAUs) in the fourth quarter of 2021 and no quarter-on-quarter growth.Apple’s (AAPL) crackdown on online advertising continues to cause problems for advertisers like Meta.Shery Sandberg, chief operating officer of Meta, said small companies are particularly hard hit when it comes to data collection because they rely more on customized advertising.As a potential solution, Meta plans to continue rolling out new AD measurement and commerce tools.5. Overall, investors seemed disappointed by Wednesday’s Meta earnings report.At present, it is a sensitive period for the disclosure of financial statements in the United States.
