10:30 EDTFB, TWTRTwitter climbs after analyst puts $75 target on shares
Shares of Twitter (TWTR) are jumping after research firm Stifel Nicolaus initiated coverage of the stock with a Buy rating. WHAT'S NEW: Twitter's ad revenue will grow 600% over the next four years, Stifel analyst Jordan Rohan predicted in a note to investors earlier today. Noting that the website currently has 232 million users versus Facebook's (FB) 1.2 billion users, Rohan believes that the number of users on Twitter will grow for years. Additionally, over time, Twitter's average revenue per user will be higher than that of Facebook, the analyst added. Compared with Facebook, Twitter has much fewer available shares, which should enable Twitter's valuation to remain higher than its social media rival, the analyst stated. He has a $75 price target on Twitter. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Twitter is nearing a deal with startup Stripe that would help enable Twitter to accept credit card payments from users, Re/code reported. Twitter will allow users to buy products directly through the social network, soon, the tech site added. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Twitter rallied $3.30, or 5.4%, to $63.90.
