Cambridge Who? Facebook Recoups Most of Data-Crisis Share Slump

(Bloomberg) -- Don’t look now, but Facebook’s stock has recouped much of what it lost in its data-privacy controversy.

The social-media giant has clawed back about $66 billion in market value after investors were reassured by an earnings report that showed user and revenue growth we unscathed. Thursday’s gains erased all but the first day’s worth of losses after revelations on March 16 that the political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica had obtained information on millions of Facebook users.
