What are Wall Street analysts saying about Twitter stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Twitter stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Twitter reported impressive first-quarter 2019 results, wherein both revenues and earnings grew on a year-over-year basis. The company’s initiatives to add new features and focus on effectively tackling abuse issues helped in expanding monetized user base. Moreover, strong demand for video ad products like Video Website Cards and in-stream pre-roll continued in the quarter. Notably, shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. The company is expected to benefit from an expanding live streaming sports content portfolio owing to partnerships with the likes of NBA, Turner Sports and FOX Sports. However, lack of revenue diversification is a major concern for the company. Additionally, increasing competition for ad dollars from the likes of Facebook and Google doesn’t bode well for the stock. Moreover, higher operating expenses are expected to keep margins under pressure in 2019." (4/26/2019)
  • 2. SunTrust Banks, Inc. analysts commented, "We maintain a Hold rating and a $34 PT on TWTR ahead of its 1Q19 earnings due out 4/23, with results we expect to be in-line to slightly ahead of the Street. While positive growth in mDAUs bodes well for the company’s engagement and monetization over time, we remain neutral on TWTR due to 1) valuation that’s above its peer group, and which we find fair given the growth/margin profile of the business, 2) elevated Opex/Capex in FY19, which are likely to pressure margins ST, 3) competition for content, ad dollars, and user attention, 4) continued challenges around the health of the platform. Results Expected. Our 1Q19 estimates are slightly ahead of Street consensus with revenue/adj. EBITDA/EPS at $781M/$244M/$0.06 vs. FactSet consensus of $774M/$247M/$0.04. Recall that management provided a revenue guidance range of $715-775M." (4/22/2019)
