What are Wall Street analysts saying about Facebook stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Facebook stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Facebook is benefiting from growth in Instagram Stories and Feed, and expanding user base in the Asia Pacific. The company helped people connect during the coronavirus pandemic. Notably, voice and video calling more than doubled on Messenger and WhatsApp. The launch of Messenger Rooms for video call, which can accommodate 50 people, and WhatsApp video support for up to eight users are noteworthy in this regard. Further, the GIPHY buyout will boost user engagement. However, Facebook expects ad-sales to be hurt by weakness in travel and automotive industry. The company didn’t provide any specific revenue guidance for the second quarter of 2020 as well as the full year. Moreover, higher operating expense is expected to dent the operating margin in 2020 due to sluggish revenue growth. Shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (6/12/2020)
  • 2. 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.

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."
