From Facebook's press release...
Capital expenditures for the first quarter of 2016 were $1.13 billion.
Cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities were $20.62 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2016.
Free cash flow for the first quarter of 2016 was $1.85 billion.
Effective tax rate was 27%.
CEO Mark Zuckerburg... "We had a great start to the year. "We're focused on our 10 year roadmap to give everyone in the world the power to share anything they want with anyone."
FB closed today (02016.04.27) at $108.76. 52-week range: $72.00 - $117.59.
"Our first quarter results were outstanding. Home Robot revenue grew 15% over Q1 2015, driven by significant growth in the United States following a record Q4 2015," said Colin Angle, chairman and chief executive officer of iRobot.
At $38.02, iRobot has an approximate market value of $1.1 billion, which seems low to me. The PSR (Price-Sales-Ratio) is less than 2.0 and this also seems low to me. I'll sell some IRBT at $50.27 (i.e. 16 $Pi).

I've be recording Google's (now Alphabet's) quarterly results since 4th-quarter 02008. Google reported 1Q'02016 results yesterday. In a nutshell: For the first 91 days of 02016, Alphabet generated $5.23 billion free cash flow while hiring 2,301 new workers and spending $2.428 billion on capital expenditures and paying an effective tax rate of 18%. Alphabet ended March with $75.264 billion in "cash." Seems like a decent quarter to me, yet right now (02016.04.22 at 7:42am MST) Alphabet has lost 5+% of its market price.
