  • 1. Jefferies Financial Group Inc analysts commented, "NEW YORK (dpa-AFX Analyser) – Das Analysehaus Jefferies hat das Kursziel fur Facebook von 235 auf 225 US-Dollar gesenkt, aber die Einstufung auf Buy" belassen. Die Werbeerlose der US-Internetkonzerne konnten sich in der gegenwartigen Corona-Krise schlechter entwickeln als wahrend der Finanzkrise 2008/2009, schrieb Analyst Brent Thill in einer am Montag vorliegenden Branchenstudie. Der Experte reduzierte seine 2020er Umsatzprognosen fur die betreffenden Unternehmen um 3 bis 16 Prozent./edh Veroffentlichung der Original-Studie: 05.04.2020 / 19:25 / ET Erstmalige Weitergabe der Original-Studie: 05.04.2020 / 19:25 / ET Hinweis: Informationen zur Offenlegungspflicht bei Interessenkonflikten im Sinne von § 85 Abs. 1 WpHG, Art. 20 VO (EU) 596/2014 fur das genannte Analysten-Haus finden Sie unter http://web.dpa-afx.de/offenlegungspflicht/offenlegungs_pflicht.html." (4/6/2020)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Facebook’s shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. Growth in Instagram Stories and Feed, and Facebook News Feed is expected to aid mobile ad revenues. The company’s initiatives to improve privacy, transparency and authenticity of ads are likely to boost user trust and engagement. The launch of Facebook View app, Facebook Pay and catalogs in the WhatsApp Business app aimed at small businesses is noteworthy. Meanwhile, estimates have been stable ahead of the company’s fourth-quarter earnings release. The company has a mixed record of earnings surprises in the recent quarters. However, a persistent mix shift toward Stories is anticipated to hurt ARPU. Also, the company’s rising regulatory headwinds, including the antitrust investigation and the EU’s investigation of Libra, are concerns." (1/10/2020)
