Why Facebook Stock's Rally Isn't Over

Facebook stock isn't succumbing to this volatile market. It jumped 11.5% after reporting Q4 earnings results, which beat all analyst estimates.

Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) reported a staggering 123% increase in profit from last year to $1.62 billion. That was a product of Facebook's expanding user and advertising base.

Facebook stock's stellar rally comes at a time when other blue-chip tech stocks - including Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) and Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) - were slammed for missing analyst estimates and reporting slower growth in their earnings reports.
