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’s fourth-quarter 2018 results reflected declining user base. Further, management’s decision to stop disclosing monthly active users (MAUs) has spooked investors. Notably, shares have underperformed the industry in the past year. Lack of revenue diversification is a major concern as the company is dependent on advertising. Hence, declining user growth rate amid increasing competition for ad dollars from the likes of Facebook and Google doesn’t bode well for the stock. Moreover, higher operating expenses in 2019 will keep margins under pressure. Nevertheless, Twitter is benefiting from growing adoption of video ad products like Video Website Cards & Video App Cards. The company’s investment in series of live streaming deals is positive. Twitter continues to add new features, like the timeline switch, and ramp up its security measures to lure users and boost engagement levels, which is expected to drive growth." (2/21/2019)
