Facebook’s Sunny Third-Quarter Results – Infographic

Facebook reported its third-quarter earnings on Tuesday and to the surprise and delight of Wall Street, the results were not terrible.

In fact, there’s reason to be optimistic that the company is adapting to its fast-growing mobile user base. Key statistics in this regard include the company’s assertion that $3 million a day in revenues now come from mobile ads and that mobile advertising makes up 14% of overall revenues.

As Statista‘s chart below shows, mobile is contributing to a picture of continued growth at Facebook.

Google’s 3rd Quarter Result A Disappointment? – Infographic

Google‘s third-quarter earnings report leaked four hours early Thursday afternoon. The earnings, which missed Wall Street’s expectations, sent the stock down more than 8% before trading was halted. Google said R.R. Donnelley, its filing agent, is to blame.

Earnings were $9.03 a share on $11.33 billion in revenue, missing expectations of $10.63 a share on revenue of $11.86 billion. Profits took a 20% dip due to costs related to the acquisition of Motorola and Android development. Google’s paid clicks were up 33% year-over-year, but cost-per-clicks revenue declined 15% from the year previous.

Numbers are one thing, but the data is much easier to take in visually, which you can do in the Statista graphic below. What do you make of Google’s less-than-stellar third quarter? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Business: Strongest Retail Stores: Apple Stores – Infographic

While online shopping is quickly dominating retail, there’s no substitute for a visit to the Apple Store. From the distinct style to the bright-eyed employees with an encyclopedic knowledge of the brand’s products, shopping at an Apple Store is an experience all its own.

If you count yourself among the Apple fanboys and fangirls, you’re in one of the biggest clubs in the world. As of July 2012, Apple has opened 363 retail hubs in 11 years, stores that shoppers have come to associate with the latest tech innovations. As part of the most valuable public company in the world, Apple stores make more money per square foot than any other U.S. retailer.

OnlineMBA created this graphic, which takes you behind the scenes of Apple’s in-store retail operations. One stat that particularly caught our eye: Getting a job at a Manhattan Apple Store in 2009 was harder than scoring a spot at Harvard, with a hire rate of just 2%. It’s no wonder they seek out the cream of the crop. In 2011, Apple store employees’ average sales per square foot were more than twice the sum of three of the retailer’s competitors (Best Buy, Costco and GameStop).

The Problem with Profit – Tami Highbaugh

Stocks fall because commodities fall?

US stocks lower as commodities slide

This is what Main Street will not understand. Commodities, overheated, fall and stocks are sliding as well. There is not much sense in this theory. Gold is a more or less useless investment, except for those that have it. The oil companies will have less profit, but everyone else has an advantage of falling oil prices.  Are stocks falling because so called market makers are at work?
