Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR)

Twitter stock surged more than 13 % yesterday after presenting its earnings report after the close of trading on Tuesday.

Amid the current stock market rally, Twitter shares are at new highs.        

Twitter is a social networking service that allows users to post and interact with messages known as "tweets." Twitter competes with the likes of FANG stock Facebook (FB) and re-emergent Snap (SNAP).

Twitter generates money from selling ads to businesses. The company is attempting to become the go-to source of updates for live events, including sports, breaking news and entertainment. Higher traffic and engagement levels will increase ad demand on Twitter, boosting ad prices and the company's sales.

Twitter stock earnings report

Twitter's revenue surged 28% year over year to $1.29 billion, fueled by strong user growth in international markets. The social media company's monetizable daily active usage (mDAU) -- essentially, the number of people who logged in and accessed Twitter's apps -- climbed 27% to 192 million.

Advertising dollars follow eyeballs, and Twitter's ad revenue rose 31% to $1.15 billion. "Advertisers are benefiting from new ad formats, stronger attribution, and improved targeting," Twitter Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal said in a press release.

Twitter stock is becoming more profitable as it scales its revenue base. Its operating income soared 65% to $252 million, as its operating margin expanded to 20%, up from 15% in the year-ago quarter.

The Catalysts Behind The Trade…..Read the full recommendation HERE…..

1. Earnings.....

Twitter stock is in a strong position ahead of earnings, which it is set to report Feb. 9 after the closing bell.

In the most recent quarter — reported on Oct. 29 — the company reported better-than-expected Q3 results, but weak user growth. Twitter ended the quarter with 187 million daily active users, well below estimates of 195 million. It added just 1 million new users, vs. 20 million in the previous quarter and 6 million in the year-ago period.

Driven by a rebound in advertising demand, revenue climbed 14% to $936 million, above consensus of $777 million. Adjusted earnings of 19 cents per share topped views of 14 cents.

Analysts polled by FactSet expect sales growth of 23% in 2021, and 4.3% for 2020.

2. Analysts Thoughts.....

KeyBanc analyst Justin Patterson wrote in a client note Thursday that his view of Twitter now values the stock at $65, giving it a Buy rating.

In the note, Patterson says that Twitter has made significant improvements to its main product, the Twitter app for the web and mobile devices, which will help the company generate more money.

“We believe Twitter has made meaningful strides to improve its platform for users and advertisers. User adoption of Topics continues to grow rapidly, providing both a better user experience and improved targeting for advertisers,” he wrote in the note.

The analyst believes a cyclical ad recovery, a ramp-up in direct response products and new product experiences like Revue, with an estimated total addressable market of $36 billion, will lend upside to the current consensus estimates for the company.

Patterson calculates that the improvements for both the company’s ad customers and its members have positioned the company to boost revenue more than 20% a year through 2022.

Despite the potential fallout from banning former U.S. President Donald Trump from the platform, Patterson thinks the action hasn’t yet caused users to flee the platform. Rather, he estimates that the company will grow its daily user base by about 10% year.

The Actual Recommended Trade.....

** OPTION TRADE: Buy TWTR FEB 12 2021 55.000 CALLS at approximately $2.25.

 (bought for 2.28)

The Profit Explained…..

“Weekly Options Members” entered a Twitter stock trade on Monday, February 01, 2021 for approximately $2.28.

After the earnings report the options trade hit a high of $14.00 (Potential profit of 514%).

Excellent profit from Twitter stock within a short period of time!

However, any members still holding the trade there is still a chance that this profit could be exceeded.

Moving Forward for Twitter Stock…..

Looking ahead, Twitter guided for first-quarter revenue of between $940 million and $1.04 billion. The company also said it plans to increase its number of employees by more than 20% in 2021, which will contribute to a 25% increase in expenses.

On the earnings call, CEO Jack Dorsey addressed the platform banning former U.S. President Donald Trump, saying Twitter is “bigger than any one account.”

Analysts See Further Upside for Twitter Stock.....

KeyBanc analyst Justin Patterson said Twitter’s ad ramp is “just getting started.”

“With product catalysts in the near and medium term, we have more conviction in >20% annual revenue growth,” Patterson wrote in a note. KeyBanc has an Overweight rating and $80 target.

Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak said Twitter’s new MAP 2.0 and other products will be key to the Twitter growth story.

“These are the types of micro-level improvements that are important to driving durable outsized growth...and advertiser/agency incremental adoption of this product is likely to be important to determining how fast revenue can really grow throughout ‘21,” Nowak wrote.

Bank of America analyst Justin Post said the MAP rollout provides significant potential upside for 2021 growth numbers. Bank of America has a Buy rating and $78 target.

“While the full impact of MAP launch and iOS 14 changes are still unknown, we continue to see expansion of Twitter’s limited DR ad spend as a material growth driver for the next three years, while Twitter should have a more limited ‘21 iOS revenue impact vs peers,” Post wrote.

Raymond James analyst Aaron Kessler said Twitter demonstrated impressive advertising strength in the fourth quarter.
