06:18 EDTFBFacebook price target raised to $136 from $127 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth raised his price target for Facebook to $136 saying the social media giant is "standing out from the pack" following its Q4 results. Revenue growth is accelerating and margins are expanding, Anmuth tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The company is not seeing signs of macro pressure, he points out. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on Facebook.
05:46 EDTFBFacebook price target raised to $170 from $155 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster raised his price target for shares of Facebook (FB) to $170 following the social media giant's Q4 results. The stock is up $11.55, or 12%, to $106.00 in pre-market trading. Facebook beat Q4 revenue estimates by 9% on stronger contribution from core mobile and the ramp of Instagram, Munster tells investors in a post-earnings research note. Management made only one mention of macro concerns for the business in 2016, significantly different than Apple's (AAPL) earnings call on Tuesday night, Munster points out. He expects Facebook shares "can continue to work" and keeps an Overweight rating on the name.

18:00 EDTFBFacebook executives pleased with China growth, hazy on Oculus launch
Speaking on the company's fourth quarter earnings conference call, Facebook (FB) Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg highlighted the company's more than 2.5M active advertisers as well as the growth of its Messenger and WhatsApp services, which have expanded to 800M and nearly 1B monthly users, respectively. More services will be coming soon to Messenger, Zuckerberg promised, including airline integration. The CEO noted he is "pleased" with initial consumer reaction to Samsung's (SSNLF) Gear VR virtual reality headset, though commentary on pre-orders for Facebook's own Oculus Rift device was notably light, with Zuckerberg saying only that the Oculus launch is "shaping up to be a big moment for the gaming community." Meanwhile, Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said the company is pleased with the growth its seeing in emerging markets, including China, where businesses are using Facebook to reach customers internationally. The commentary comes in contrast to the downbeat macro view voiced during Apple's (AAPL) conference call Tuesday night. Globally, 98 of the quarter's top 100 Facebook advertisers also chose to market on Instagram, Sandberg said, adding that as businesses realize they need to catch up to consumer shifts towards mobile, she foresees a "big" opportunity to continue growing advertiser count. ANALYST TAKE: Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster issued a post-earnings note on Facebook, reiterating his Overweight rating and $155 price target on the social network giant in the wake of its strong beat. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Facebook have surged 12.8% to $106.60 in after-hours trading. Other members of the FANG stock grouping are also moving higher, with Amazon (AMZN), Netflix (NFLX) and Alphabet (GOOG) rising a respective 2.3%, 2.25% and 2.6%.
