Tale of two social stocks: Twitter vs. Facebook

It's the big week for Q2 social media earnings, as Twitter reports after the bell Tuesday afternoon, followed by Facebook's earnings Wednesday afternoon.

But these are two very different stories, with Facebook trading up nearly 30 percent in the past year—near its all-time highs—while Twitter has lost more than 7 percent from a year ago, and more than 33 percent from its 2015 high in April.
