META Earnings Call - Full Breakdown
Morgan Stanley changes its mind, AI scores big gains
Ahoy Metamates! 🚢 🏴☠️
🆕 The TLDR This Week
The King Is Back
Every analyst got PWND by Mark this quarter
Crushing public markets by day, whooping ass in jiu jitsu at night. Mark’s schedule is pretty packed nowadays.
But, despite a strong pickup on the stock, we’re still largely in the danger zone. Fundamentally, Mark bent the knee to analysts and spoke their language - “year of efficiency”, “restructuring and layoffs”, “ look Ma, we’re using AI”. These are all great soundbites. But they don’t change the long term vision for Meta or the cost to get there.
This is not a concession, it’s a clever slight of hand.
This new narrative makes analysts feel like they won and pressured Mark into a surrender. Legions of finance bros with cheap Hermes ties are congratulating themselves somewhere in seedy NY bars because they got the greatest CEO of our generation to bend the knee (or so they think). It works for now. It’s a delicate balance of using AI-generated engagement metrics to detract from the $4B hole that is Reality Labs.
How long will it last? Well, it depends more on the larger economy than you might think.
Now let’s dive into the Earnings call and analysis that followed it.
