What are analysts saying about Twitter stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Twitter stock:
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Twitter reported fourth quarter 2016 results wherein adjusted loss was narrower than expected but revenues missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Year over year, revenues grew just 1%. Moreover, ad revenues declined year over year. Twitter remains in trouble with just 319 million users. Revenue growth is decelerating and profits are yet to be earned. Exodus at the top level management is adding to woes. Plus, costs continue to rise as Twitter invests in product development. Moreover, stiff competition for ad dollars is another cause of worry. To battle odds, Twitter is making user friendly changes to the platform and is focused on boosting live content on it platform . It is also shedding noncore operations. However, these are yet to bring any marked improvement in Twitter’s performance. Shares have largely underperformed the broader market in the past one year. " (2/13/2017)
Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "We reiterate our Sell rating on TWTR shares and PT of $10. Twitter’s ad business goes ex-growth in 4Q, while 1Q guidance points to a far steeper decline: Twitter missed consensus revenue forecasts by ~3% in 4Q:16 as its advertising business declined y/y for the first time in the company’s history . Although the 4Q ad revenue declines were slight (down <1% overall, -1% y/y in O&O advertising, though U.S. advertising could've been lower since total U.S. revenue fell -5% y/y) the company’s 1Q guidance / commentary about the remainder of 2017 point to a bleak outlook for the advertising business in the coming quarters. Twitter’s 1Q:17 adj. EBITDA guidance implies revenue of ~$440mm to ~$540mm (or -26% to -9% declines y/y), or ~$492mm at the midpoint (-17% y/y). The midpoint of the implied 1Q revenue guide is roughly 22% below the Street’s $628mm forecast, and a staggering ~37% below where consensus numbers sat roughly a year ago (the Street was at $776mm for 1Q:17 in February 2016, per FactSet)."" (2/12/2017)
- Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "Twitter's Q4 results were mixed, as revenue and ad ARPU missed consensus expectations while MAUs and EBITDA were slightly better. The brightest spot was accelerating DAU growth of 11%, which implies improving engagement across several key markets. The biggest surprise was Q1 guidance, which implies a y/y revenue decline of ~16% and raises concerns regarding advertiser engagement with the platform. Management remains focused on a continued product roadmap designed to keep engagement and the user base headed in the right direction, and relayed intensive efforts to regain advertiser support. While we don't expect a great deal of progress along these fronts in the first half of 2017, the improving engagement trends and Twitter's rebounding popularity in the new political climate leave us cautiously optimistic thatrevenue can pick up in the second half of the year. Bullish: MAU growth of 4% is in line w/ consensus." (2/9/2017)
- RBC Capital Markets analysts commented, "Revenue is sharply deteriorating, with 1% Y/Y growth in Q4 and implied Y/Y declines of 9-26% in Q1; EBITDA guidance also well below ests. Improved Engagement -- accelerating growth in DAUs, etc' is a positive in an otherwise challenged qtr." (2/9/2017)
- Evercore ISI analysts commented, "Twitter missed on revenues and substantially lowered expectations for 1Q 2017. This was softened to some degree by management providing a tempered spending outlook for the year on continued signs of favorable inflection within key user growth and engagement metrics. It was also accompanied by management laying out a course for 2017 that centers on a more comprehensive application of machine learning within its experience and the centralization of many products into its Explore offering (i.e., Moments, Search and Live Video). Our view is that while this all sounds great, it is not likely enough to deliver revenue growth in 2017, as ad ROIs have proven insufficient, competition for brand spend is intensifying, and certain of Twitter's ad products may cease to exist following further review. As such, we view the case for Twitter as being one based more on strategic rationale than on fundamental." (2/9/2017)
