Here we go again.

Facebook  (FB) - Get Report  is set to report earnings after the bell Tuesday, Oct. 30. The social media giant is one of the final FANG companies to report--the last one, of course, is Apple (AAPL) - Get Report , which is set to release Thursday, Nov. 1. 

TheStreet's Annie Gaus--who covers tech--recently went through Facebook's Earnings Report on Tuesday: Here Are 3 Top Things to Watch For. Gaus writes that Facebook is down more than 30% since its July earnings report revealing slower-than-expected user growth and missed revenue targets.

So what should investors look out for? According to Gaus:

  • Facebook's continued security problems
  • News feed fatigue
  • High hopes for Instagram  

Other companies for investors to keep an eye on this week include Electronic Arts (EA) - Get Report , Amgen (AMGN) - Get Report , Under Armour (UAA) - Get Report , Yum! Brands (YUM) - Get Report , and Aetna (AET) .  TheStreet's Martin Baccardax and Katherine Ross tackled these stocks and more in this week's Trading Strategies  podcast below.
