Apple’s Exploding Capital Expenditures (AAPL)

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-capex-big-spenders-2012-10

Apple’s capital expenditures for the last year were $8.3 billion, which is significantly above its rivals, as this chart from Horace Dediu at Asymco shows.

Dediu believes Apple’s capex is significantly above its peers because Apple is investing in data centers like Google, and process equipment like Intel. As a result, its quarterly spending is closer to Google plus Intel.

Facebook’s Revenue Deceleration Is Over! (FB)

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-facebook-revenue-2012-10

The reason Facebook tanked after its IPO is that revenue growth decelerated for the past several quarters. 

That’s not good for a story with Facebook’s revenue and profit multiples. It needs to be growing very fast.

So it was very good news for Facebook today, when it reported earnings that showed the company has finally stabilized revenue growth – 32% last quarter and 32% this quarter. You can see this in the chart below.

What this chart doesn’t show is the even better news that Facebook has actually re-accelerated its advertising revenues – up to 32% y/y this quarter from 28% y/y last quarter.

Mobile Accounts for 7 Percent Of The U.S. Digital Ad Market

Source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/businessinsider/~3/D4Haim_wFHI/chart-mobile-accounts-for-7-percent-of-the-us-digital-ad-market-2012-10

Mobile almost doubled its share of the U.S. digital ad market through the first six months of the year. According to IAB, U.S. mobile ad revenues were $1.2 billion in the first half of the year and 7 percent of total U.S. digital ad revenues, up from 4 percent a year prior.   

Total 2011 U.S. mobile ad revenues were $1.6 billion, according to IAB. Half-year revenues of $596 million were about 38 percent of the year-end total. Holding all else equal, if the U.S. market grew at the same rate this year, 2012 mobile ad revenues would be $3.2 billion.

Instagram’s Runaway Growth

Source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/businessinsider/~3/_N_-0QagrS0/chart-of-the-day-instagram-growth-2012-10

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg bought Instagram swiftly over a weekend, seemingly on a whim. But it has proven to be a wise investment. According to ComScore, Instagram accounts for one in five of the monthly active mobile users Facebook now controls. (Note: These numbers do not take into account duplication between people who use both Facebook and Instagram.)
