09:56 EDTTWTRTwitter price target lowered to $28 from $40 at Goldman
Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry lowered his estimates for Twitter's MAU growth following the announced departures of five executives from the company, arguing that continued management instability likely further delays the development of the technology and product needed for Twitter to see user growth, engagement, and monetization. Terry also cut his 2016-17 revenue estimates by 5% and lowered his price target for Twitter shares to $28 from $40, but keeps a Buy rating on the stock, saying he sees value in its platform that is "significantly beyond" its current $12B market value.

08:26 EDTTWTRTwitter 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..
