What are Wall Street analysts saying about Facebook, Inc. Common Stock stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Facebook, Inc. Common Stock stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Facebook’s second-quarter results were hurt by a slowing user base growth rate primarily due to the increased concerns over data privacy. Moreover, the company’s cautious guidance hurt investor’s confidence. Facebook now expects expenses to increase at a faster rate as compared with revenues in 2019. 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. Shares have also underperformed the industry over the past one year." (7/31/2018)
  • 2. Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We are reminded of a Warren Buffett quote, “Trust is like the air we breathe – when it’s present, nobody really notices; when it’s absent, everybody notices.” Key Points 1. It became apparent during the hearings that Mark Zuckerberg is more knowledgeable about technology than members of Congress. Unfortunately for Facebook and the industry, broad knowledge by politicians of the real issues is not a prerequisite for regulation. It takes only a few members of Congress with interest in the topics at hand (privacy, security, competition, and consumer protection) to begin the process of creating rules for Internet companies, just like those that exist in almost every other industry. We believe consumer protection laws will be instituted in the U.S. to protect consumers and that Facebook’s scale and business practices have served as the catalyst." (4/12/2018)
