Check out the companies making headlines after the bell:

Facebook — Shares of the social media giant was down more than 4% in after hours trading on Wednesday following its quarterly results.

The company said that it benefited in 2020 by a shift toward online commerce but warned that these trends may moderate or reverse and “could serve as a headwind to our advertising revenue growth.” Facebook also warned about the looming changes in Apple’s iOS 14.

The company reported earnings per share of 80 cents on an adjusted basis, compared to the $1.03 per share expected by the Street.
