10:19 EDTTWTR, AMZN, GOOG, FBAnalysts upbeat on upcoming Twitter quarterly report
Two research firms were optimistic about the outlook for Twitter's (TWTR) fourth quarter results and 2014 performance in separate notes to investors earlier today. However, both firms also made cautious statements about the social media company. WHAT'S NEW: Twitter's fourth quarter results could exceed analysts' consensus by a small amount, although it is difficult to gauge the company's fundamentals, RBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney wrote. Twitter's momentum can continue, and the company can become one of the leading websites, alongside Google (GOOG), Amazon.com (AMZN), and Facebook (FB), Mahaney believes. The company's long-term outlook remains bright, added the analyst, who kept a $60 price target and Outperform rating on the stock. Wedbush analyst Shyam Patil contended that Twitter benefited from strong spending on its platform last quarter and some advertisers are beginning to dedicate a set amount of money to Twitter in their budgets. Twitter's fourth quarter results will be "very strong," and marketers' Twitter budgets could double this year, the analyst wrote. However, the company's fourth quarter results are likely to be in-line with analysts' consensus estimate, and investors should wait for a better entry point before buying the shares, wrote Patil. The analyst increased his price target on the stock to $58 from $37, but kept a Neutral rating on the shares.
