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. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Facebook has been battered by the recent data leak, which reportedly affected 87 million users.  The fiasco has sparked concerns about user privacy on the platform. The incident not only grabbed the attention of government regulators worldwide but also fetched harsh criticism from the likes of Apple CEO Tim Cook. Although CEO Mark Zuckerberg has apologized, it may not be enough to restore user as well as advertiser trust immediately. Estimates have been going down ahead of the company’s Q1 earnings release. However, Facebook’s efforts to plug security loopholes as well as limit fake news are expected to eventually boost trustworthiness." (4/11/2018)
  • 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."
