What are Wall Street analysts saying about Twitter stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Twitter stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Twitter continues to add features and ramp up its security measures to boost engagement levels. The company’s new in-app camera feature strengthens its competitive position against the likes of Snapchat and Facebook’s Instagram. Twitter is also benefiting from strong growth in international markets and video advertisements. Growing adoption of video ad products like Video Website Cards & Video App Cards will drive the top line. Moreover, Twitter remains focused on live and is now exploring beyond just news. The series of live streaming deals are a step in that direction. Meanwhile, estimates have been stable ahead of the Q1 earnings release. The company has delivered positive earnings surprises in the recent quarters. However, its shares have underperformed the industry in the past year. Lack of revenue diversification is a major concern, as Twitter is significantly dependent on advertising." (4/16/2019)
