Why Facebook Is Undervalued - Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) | Seeking Alpha
To select the relevant financial metrics that Facebook shareholders have been looking at, Facebook's shares have been historically related to some of the standard financial metrics, such as revenue, earnings, gross margin, and free cash flow. Simply because stock prices are forward-looking, the forward financials are always more useful than the actual financials. For this reason, I collected the consensus estimates of the various metrics since 2013. Their relationships between forward revenue and EPS estimates with actual Facebook stock prices are depicted in Figure 2 and Figure 3, respectively.

Discounted Cash Flow (DCF)
DCF analyses use future free cash flow projections and discounts them, using a required annual rate, to arrive at present value estimates. A present value estimate is then used to evaluate the potential for investment. If the value arrived at through DCF analysis is higher than the current cost of the investment, the opportunity may be a good one.

SaaS Public Company Reporting Metrics
Through the KBCM Technology Group’s annual Private SaaS Company Survey, our team has collected SaaS (software as a service) business performance benchmarking information for participating private companies. Through the work we’ve done with our SaaS IPO clients, we have also compiled a comprehensive database of publicly reported SaaS metrics. The data assembled here is the only publicly available information for some of the most successful SaaS businesses in the world.

With an easy-to-reference table (see below), we’ve helped make sense of a variety of SaaS approaches by capturing key metrics, including definitions from the companies, our interpretation of the definitions, and the value stated by each company at the time of IPO. Some focus on customer count, while others reflect changes in dollar value of recurring revenue (ARR or GAAP) from existing customers. Some report gross churn, reflecting only the lost business, while others report net retention/expansion, offsetting losses with the benefit of upsells and expansions.

Using an annual growth rate, how can I convert monthly revenue growth to quarterly revenue growth? - Quora
Let's start with the basics. When something is growing at 1% monthly, each month you multiply the previous month's result by 1.01.

Month 0 (start) = 1 - 1= 0% growth
Month 1 = (1 * 1.01) - 1= .01 = 1% growth
Month 2 = (1 * 1.01 * 1.01) - 1 = .0201 = 2.01% growth
Month 3 = (1 * 1.01 * 1.01 * 1.01) - 1 = .030301 = 3.0301% growth
And so on.

A shorthand for representing this is through an exponent. (1.01 ^ 3) - 1 = (1.01 * 1.01 * 1.01) - 1 = .030301 = 3.0301% = The result of 3 months of growth at 1% monthly.

Why Trello Failed to Build a $1 Billion+ Business – Noteworthy — The Journal Blog
It’s possible to build a $1B+ company with a freemium business model targeted toward consumers. In 2013, Dropbox was valued at $8B on $200M in revenue with 200M users six years after launch. This was before Dropbox had even launched a business plan — the company’s revenue primarily came from upselling free users to a $10/month plan.

How to choose the right UX metrics for your product | Google Ventures
Basic traffic metrics (like overall page views or number of unique users) are easy to track and give a good baseline on how your site is doing, but they are often not very useful for evaluating the impact of UX changes. I’m part of a group of quantitative UX researchers at Google...We’ve developed a couple of useful methods to help choose and define appropriate metrics that reflect: The quality of user experience (the HEART framework) The goals of your product or project (the Goals-Signals-Metrics process)
