In volatile times, tech stocks often bounce around more than others

Take a look at Facebook's 2017 10k. http://d18rn0p25nwr6d.cloudfront.net...c89d6f8e6d.pdf

Page 33: 2017 Revenue of 40.65B, up from $17.93B two years ago. Expenses of $20.45B, up from $11.70B two years ago. EPS of $5.49, up from $1.31 two years ago.

Revenues are growing really fast, and expenses are growing an awful lot slower. So you can see why investors are betting on FB making more money in the future. That's a good bet . . . until it isn't.
