08:26 EDTFBTwitter in play after executive departures, says Cantor
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali believes yesterday's news of several senior executives leaving Twitter (TWTR) puts the company in play and could encourage potential bidders to step forward. Twitter's current valuation and sizeable user base makes it a strategic asset for a number of potential buyers, Squali told investors last night in a research note. Potential suitors on the technology side include Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL), Facebook (FB) and Microsoft (MSFT), the analyst contends. On the media side, Squali thinks 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Disney (DIS), Comcast (CMCSA) or Time Warner (TWX) could express interest in Twitter. No concentration of share ownership and no super-voting structure increase the odds of a buyout, Squali argues. The analyst, however, adds that the executive departures are not good news for a company in the midst of a turnaround. He maintains a Buy rating on the microblogging operator with a $45 price target. Twitter closed yesterday down 82c, or 5%, to $17.02..

Evercore ISI analyst Ken Sena says the likelihood of near-term growth reacceleration at Twitter (TWTR) looks less likely following today's executive departures. The analyst adds in an intraday research note that traffic trends and agency channel checks continue "to point to the worst" for the company. Sena lowered his Q4 estimates to the low-end of the company's guidance and cut his price target for the shares to $19 from $22. He continues to prefer Facebook (FB) and keeps a Hold rating on Twitter.
