Facebook's Q4 2016 earnings report is even more significant than normal. Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) announced in its Q3 2016 earnings report that revenue growth would slow "meaningfully" in 2017. That's why all eyes will be on this report.
Facebook will report Q4 2016 earnings on Wednesday, Feb. 1, after the closing bell. According to FactSet, the social media giant is expected to report earnings per share (EPS) of $1.31 on $8.5 billion in revenue.
For the year, Facebook is expected to report EPS of $4.14 on $27.34 billion in revenue.
Aside from EPS and revenue, shareholders should also watch for growth in monthly active users (MAUs) and daily active users (DAUs).
Facebook is expected to report 1.83 billion MAUs and 1.19 billion DAUs. That would be a 2.2% increase for MAUs and an increase of 0.8% for DAUs.
And aside from revenue and user growth, there's something else Facebook shareholders should watch for: the Facebook stock split date.
