07:33 EDTFBPiper's Munster sees virtual reality moving Facebook shares higher
Three themes centering on virtual reality could move shares of Facebook higher over the next three months, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster tells investors in a research note. First up in September, Facebook's Oculus unit will host a developer conference in Los Angeles which will address investor questions around the virtual reality use case, Munster writes. Second, the consumer version of Oculus, called Rift, will be available slightly earlier than investors expect with sales starting in January of next year, Munster believes. And third, based on his analysis on LinkedIn profiles, Munster thinks Facebook is making the most aggressive investment in VR talent. He has increased confidence in the social media giant's long term virtual position and reiterates an Overweight rating on the stock with a $146 price target. Facebook closed yesterday down 49c to $93.93.
