Wednesday’s Factors and Events

Instagram has really taken off over the past year, with user growth accelerating while theFacebook (NASDAQ: FB) subsidiary continues to add more and more features to the already popular photo- and video-sharing service. That includes everything from new e-commerce features to the recent launch of IGTV , a long-form video content platform. At least one Street analyst is modeling for Instagram to generate nearly $9 billion in revenue this year.

In a stunning new estimate released yesterday, Instagram could be worth $100 billion — representing over a sixth of Facebook’s current market cap (roughly $575 billion).

Bloomberg Intelligence is estimating that Instagram’s valuation could be in 12-digit territory, which would represent a 100-fold return for Facebook after acquiring the fledgling service back in 2012 for $1 billion. In fact, the final price tag upon closing was actually lower, just $715 million , due to stock price fluctuations related to the stock portion of the deal, making Facebook’s return even greater — a nearly 140-fold return.
