What are Wall Street analysts saying about Facebook stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Facebook stock:
  • 1. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We forecast total revenue growth of +33% y/y in 3Q. Existential questions around user growth maturation, revenue deceleration, and core platform durability hit the mainstream following last quarter’s outlook. While we recognize these concerns are relevant, we view the risk as reflected at current levels with shares trading at 16x 2020 GAAP EPS ex-cash on “de-risked” estimates versus prior to 2Q. The company is positioned to grow at 20%+ over the next three years and we view near-term revenue estimates as achievable. Despite the recent user maturation in 2.5B+ global user base remains intact and hooked on the product. We reiterate our Buy rating and $202 Price Target." (10/19/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Facebook’s slowing user base growth rate primarily due to the increased concerns over data privacy is a headwind. Moreover, the company’s cautious guidance is expected to keep the stock range bound. Facebook now expects expenses to increase at a faster rate as compared with revenues in 2019. For the second half of 2018, the company projects revenue growth rates to decline. Aggressive investments for the initiatives related to improving ad transparency, removal of fake accounts and curbing fake news would definitely hurt profitability in the near term. Additionally, slower Stories and Messenger monetization would hurt Facebook’s top-line growth. Increasing competition is also a concern. Moreover, the company has mixed record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. However, shares have outperformed the industry over the past one year." (10/17/2018)
