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 is benefiting from robust growth in advertising and user base. Facebook’s user base of 2.2 billion coupled with Instagram’s 1 billion users provides a huge canvas for advertisers, which, in turn, is driving the top line of the company. Rising mobile conversions on the platform is boosting mobile ad growth. Growing popularity of Stories across all its major platforms, with Instagram taking center stage, is a tailwind. Apart from mobile and video, the monetization opportunities of Messenger, WhatsApp and Oculus and a huge user base are expected to drive growth going ahead. Facebook has a strong balance sheet and generates significant cash flow, which makes it an attractive stock for investors. Shares outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (7/11/2018)
  • 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)
  • 3. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We also reiterate our Outperform recommendation on shares. Updated Terms and Conditions and Data Policy offer clearer view of current practices. In the first of two press releases today, FB issued a revised set of user Terms and Conditions and Data Policy, making clear that the new documents neither asked for any new user permissions, nor made any changes to users’ existing privacy setting choices made through the use of its family of products. Instead the revised policy offered a more detailed explanation as to what types of data FB collects across its family of products as well as a clearer expression of how the data is used to offer users a personalized product experience and advertisers the opportunity to more accurately target their messages to prospective consumers. In closing, the release offered that FB would be collecting feedback over the next 7 days, with goal of presenting the full revisions that will require user consent." (4/5/2018)
  • 4. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We note that these comments were generally consistent with observations we have found recently, which indicates that marketers are unlikely to cut their spending because of concerns about the social ills of social media. However, spending will change if consumer behaviors on those media change, and spending will further be impacted by practical limits to growth in budgets for advertising, which for us remains as a key concern on the growth potential for digital media companies we cover." (2/12/2018)
