10:55 EDTFBPac Crest an outlier with bearish note on Facebook following Q1 report
After Facebook last night reported higher than expected first quarter profits but lower than expected revenue. several analysts reacted positively to the company's results, raising their price targets on the social network operator's stock. However, Pacific Crest went against the mostly bullish trend by recommending that investors avoid the stock. WHAT'S NEW: Facebook last night reported first quarter earnings per share of 42c, versus the consensus outlook of 40c. The social network operator's revenue came in below expectations, and the company said that foreign exchange trends negatively impacted its first quarter results. Facebook forecast that foreign exchange headwinds would increase this quarter. Facebook reported that it had 936M daily active users on average last month, an increase of 17% versus the same period a year earlier. Its monthly active users climbed 13% year-over-year to 1.44B in Q1. BULLISH TAKE: Adjusting for currency, Facebook's Q1 revenue would have been 3% higher than the Street's consensus outlook, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster stated. The online network's "story is firmly intact" as its results are likely to be boosted by the ramping of Instagram in 2016, WhatsApp in 2017 and Oculus in 2018, the analyst stated. He kept a $92 price target and Buy rating on the shares. Also upbeat was Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Sandler, who raised his price target on the stock to $100 from $90, saying that its currency headwinds "masked" strong Q1 results. The stock will "grind higher" on new revenue streams and product announcements, predicted Sandler, who kept a Buy rating on the shares. JPMorgan analyst Doug Anmuth raised his price target on the stock to $100 from $85, saying that the company reported strong Q1 results and that it is the best positioned Internet company over the next five years. Moreover, its video ads appear to be hitting a positive turning point, added Anmuth, who kept an Overweight rating on the name. BEARISH TAKE: Facebook's price per ad appears to have declined sequentially last quarter for the first time since early 2013, wrote Pacific Crest analyst Evan Wilson. If that trend continues, its price per ad growth will decelerate significantly this year, according to the analyst. Additionally, the company's margins are contracting and its new products are unlikely to make much of an impact this year, according to Wilson, who recommended that investors choose other stocks over Facebook. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Facebook slid 0.7% to $84 per share.

Credit Suisse said Facebook remains a top pick for 2015 and that its in-line quarter strengthened the firm's Outperform thesis. The firm said the quarter reaffirmed its conviction that Facebook will be able to drive revenue growth without a material increase in ad loads, consensus estimates underestimate long-term monetization potential of new products, and upward bias to estimates from Offers/Local, Instagram, WhatsApp, Oculus, and others. Credit Suisse's price target on Facebook remains $106.
