Pinterest (PINS) makes money. The image-discovery platform is jumping 30% following better than expected earnings as sales rose 58% to $442.62 million verse estimates of $386.29 million. Revenue growth was driven by a rebound in global advertising spending from last quarter's pandemic-driven downturn, plus an increase in the number of monthly active users on their site. The COVID-19 crisis has provided a tailwind to user growth since people are staying home more than usual.
