10:06 EDTFBFacebook rises after Credit Suisse ups rating ahead of earnings
Shares of Facebook (FB) are climbing after Credit Suisse upgraded the stock in a note to investors last night. WHAT'S NEW: Credit Suisse analyst Stephen Ju now expects Facebook to obtain more revenue, on average, from each of its users than the firm had previously anticipated. New products that Facebook is developing should enable the company to obtain more revenue over the medium to long term without boosting its ad loads, the analyst contends. Other analysts are underestimating the amount of revenue that Facebook's new products will generate, added Ju. He upgraded Facebook to Outperform from Neutral and raised his price target on the shares to $87 from $65. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Yesterday research firm JMP Securities increased its first quarter estimates for Facebook, saying that the company's investments are causing advertisers to buy more ads on the website. The firm expects the social network's ad sales to continue to be strong as it launches new types of ads. It reiterated an $82 price target and Outperform rating on the stock. Facebook is expected to report first quarter earnings after the market close on Wednesday, April 23, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Facebook climbed $1.47, or 2.4%, to $62.71.
