10:26 EDTFBFacebook shares little changed despite analysts lauding results
Facebook (FB) reported better than expected fourth quarter earning and revenue last night and a number of analysts responded positively to the news, though the social network operator's shares are little changed in early trading. BACKGROUND: Facebook reported fourth quarter EPS of 54c, compared with analysts' consensus estimate of 48c. The company's revenue came in slightly above expectations. The social network said that its monthly active user base grew 13% last quarter versus the same period a year earlier to 1.39B, while its ad revenue surged 53% to $3.6B. ANALYST REACTION: Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian raised his price target on Facebook to $93 from $80. The social network reported strong results, driven by healthy user engagement and monetization trends, the analyst believes. The company's ongoing large investments in developing ad technology should improve the platforms of the Facebook website, Instagram, and WhatsApp, as well as its developing ad network, Sebastian stated. He kept an Outperform rating on the stock. Cantor analyst Youssef Squali increased his price target on the stock to $90 from $80. The company's Q4 results were solid, as its ad revenue growth was impressive, the analyst stated. Given the ongoing shift of ad dollars to mobile and social, and the untapped revenue potential of a number of Facebook's assets, the stock remains a top pick, the analyst stated. UBS analyst Eric Sheridan was also upbeat on the shares, writing that the stock has one of the most compelling risk/reward ratios among large cap growth stocks he covers. The company continues to have strong user growth and engagement trends, and benefit from strong ad prices, and initiatives that produce advertising market share gains, the analyst stated. Facebook has many ways to increase its revenue going forward, and the stock increasingly looks cheap, according to Sheridan, who kept a $92 price target and Buy rating on the shares.. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Facebook shares rose fractionally to $76.32.
