Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) does not report its calendar Q4 ’16 quarter and financial results until February 1, 2017, but investors have been nervous about the stock since – with the post-presidential election rally in the 4th quarter of 2016 – Facebook actually fell 10% for the three months that ended 2016, even as the rest of the market rallied nicely.

A big part of that 10% decline was due to the first pass at 2017 guidance by Facebook’s management on the 3rd quarter 2016 conference call last November 2nd, 2016, where Facebook cautioned that 2017 revenue would be impacted by ad load factors and 2017 expenses might be higher too.

Also guiding cautiously for a tough Q4 ’16, Facebook said that:

Revenue growth rates would decline due to tough comps. Expense guidance would be at the low end of the 30%-35% range. Revenue and “other fees” payments would be lower in Q4 ’16.

Facebook also said that “official” 2017 guidance would be given on the February 2017 call.
