Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Facebook stock:
  • 1. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We expect FB to report inline to slightly better 2Q19 results and to reiterate prior OpEx/CapEx guidance on 7/24. Conversations with marketers suggest that advertiser demand remained strong and steady in 2Q19, showing Y/Y acceleration in spend for their sample set, driven by strength in mobile, Video and IG. While the upheaval around user privacy has had no noticeable impact on demand, regulatory scrutiny remains intense, with the FTC recommending a $5B fine for violating the 2011 consent decree with yet unknown changes to its business practices. We maintain a Buy rating/$215 PT." (7/23/2019)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We remain Hold rated on shares of Facebook with a 12-month DCF-driven $175 TP, or 20x 2020 EPS." (4/25/2019)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Facebook’s ARPU growth is expected to be negatively impacted by continued mix shift toward Stories. Also, the company needs to improve ad pricing to boost the top line. Moreover, uncertain macro environment due to Brexit is a headwind. Further, aggressive investments toward security and innovation of AR/VR and AI technologies are expected to negatively impact profits in 2019. However, shares have outperformed the industry over the past year. The company is expected to benefit from solid mobile ad revenues driven by robust performance of Instagram Stories and an expanding user base in 2019. Moreover, introduction of the shopping feature on Instagram is expected to be a major growth driver. Further, the growing appeal of the company’s Workplace platform, which has now more than two million paid users, is another key catalyst." (4/8/2019)
