How to Trade on Apple, Facebook, Caterpillar Earnings: StockTwits

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The bonanza of earnings reports this week has draws StockTwits' users into debate and discussion. Here are some of their best highlights and tips.

1. Apple (AAPL - Get Report) has been the top-trending ticker on StockTwits since it reported earnings yesterday. Over the last 24 hours, messages posted on StockTwits about Apple have doubled from 3,000 to 6,000. Over that same time frame, bullish sentiment has spiked 10% -- it's now at 70%.

Here's how some investors are interpreting Apple's latest report:

$AAPL ex cash is trading at 7x Goldman's 2016 estimates; clearly a BUY here, especially in front of a split that will make shares accessible

-- Stray Trader (@StrayTrader) Apr. 24 at 07:57 AM

With these recent moves $AAPL is consolidating its metamorphosis from growth to a value play.

-- Alvaro Salazar (@neoalvaro) Apr. 23 at 11:47 PM

$AAPL Love the stock split and the buy back...hate the guidance. They definitely pulled a "look, SHINY" Brilliant move.

2. When Facebook (FB - Get Report) first posted their earnings yesterday, the stock tanked. News broke that their CFO, David Ebersman, was stepping down.

But it did not take long for the market to realize that Facebook reported a giant earnings beat. The news about their CFO was, to some extent, irrelevant.

On StockTwits, everyone is talking about Facebook and its future. The number of messages being shared about Facebook has jumped 78%. The company has also seen a 5% jump in bullish sentiment:
