Twitter Inc (TWTR): Growth Story In Question?

February 7, 2014 11:18am NASDAQ:SOCL

twitterShares of Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) fell out of the nest hard today, as the fledgeling public company reported its first quarterly earnings. Both fourth-quarter revenue and adjusted earnings per share were ahead of analysts’ expectations, but the real story


was slowing growth both in its number of new users added and in user engagement. Does this derail the investing thesis that Twitter can be as big as Facebook and is just getting started in terms of growth?

In this video, host Mark Reeth and Motley Fool tech and telecom bureau chief Evan Niu take a look at Thursday’s stock of the day, Twitter, and discuss just how worried investors in the company should be after today’s disappointing news and frantic market sell-off. Evan highlights the fact that Twitter may be less intuitive to use than Facebook, and that these numbers may signify the service being much more of a niche product than investors had hoped.

He also notes that even before the sell-off, Twitter looked very frothy and extremely expensive for what it is. Evan says he isn’t buying on today’s pullback, he’ll be staying on the sidelines for this one.
