Comic touches this week on what is happening in the technology sector in the US, with many of the great players of earnings reports, especially Facebook (NASDAQ: FB), Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Google and Twitter ( NYSE: TWTR), as well as the sale of Yahoo (NASDAQ: YHOO) Verizon for $ 4.8 billion.
Facebook joined the high-profile winners neighborhood after reporting second-quarter revenue and user growth that beat estimates after the close of Wednesday’s session. Shares shot up 8% in the wake of upbeat results.
On Tuesday, Apple said it sold more iPhones than Wall Street expected in the third quarter and estimates that its revenue in the current period would be above objectives of many analysts, sending its shares up nearly 7% in response.
The focus now falls on the parent company Google Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOGL), which is due to report quarterly results after the close of Thursday’s session.
On the downside, Twitter launched after the network media reported its slowest growth of income from the IPO in 2013 on Tuesday and set a disappointing forecast for the current period.
Finally, Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) agreed to pay $ 4.8 billion to acquire Yahoo in a deal announced earlier this week, ending months of uncertainty about the future of the troubled Internet company.
