Facebook

The huge social media leader has been on a roll, and the analysts remain very positive.

Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) is the largest social network, with over 2.3 billion monthly active users and over 1.6 billion daily active users.

The company generates revenue from advertising and from payments, with over 95% of revenue from advertising. It generates close to 50% of revenues in the United States and Canada and is expanding rapidly in international markets.

The company’s solutions also include Instagram, a mobile application that enables people to take photos or videos, customize them with filter effects, and share them with friends and followers in a photo feed or send them directly to friends.

Messenger, a messaging application for mobile and web on various platforms and devices, enables people to reach others instantly, as well as enable businesses to engage with customers.

WhatsApp Messenger is a mobile messaging application.

Facebook reported solid fourth-quarter results that beat expectations. Going forward, management expects revenue growth deceleration in the first quarter, and it said in the earnings call that the majority of the ad targeting headwinds are ahead of the company. That said, many analysts are buyers on any stock weakness, citing commerce advertising, Facebook messenger and Instagram.

The $250 Merrill Lynch price target is in line with the $248.09 consensus price target. Facebook stock closed most recently at $196.77.

This Stock Should EASILY Double by 2025

by William Patalon III

Facebook’s price/earnings (P/E) ratio is now trading at a “trailing” P/E of 27 and a “forward” P/E of about 19 – in essence, the lowest valuation level in five years.

At the close of 2019, Facebook had $54 billion in cash and short-term investments.

All my friends and I now hunt for stuff on Facebook Marketplace.

It’s going to better utilize Instagram and WhatsApp – platforms that each boast active daily user bases a billion strong.

The company’s Watch TV platform also has great promise.

And Facebook has designs on the online dating market in the bigger, developed economies.

Facebook shares poised to fall after Starbucks joins ad pullback

by Kurt Wagner

SAN FRANCISCO (June 29): Facebook Inc shares were poised to fall for a second day after more businesses, including Starbucks Corp and Diageo plc, joined the growing number of brands planning to halt spending on social media, undermining the company’s growth outlook.

Shares declined about 2.5% in early trading before markets in New York opened today. The stock tumbled 8.3% last Friday after Unilever, one of the world’s largest advertisers, said it would cease spending on Facebook properties this year, eliminating US$56 billion (RM239.96 billion) in market value and shaving the net worth of chief executive officer (CEO) Mark Zuckerberg by more than US$7 billion.

Shares closed at US$216.08 last Friday after reaching a record US$242.24 on the preceding Tuesday.

Starbucks and Diageo followed Unilever, Coca-Cola Co and several other companies in saying they will cut ad spending, part of an exodus aimed at pushing Facebook and other social media platforms to limit hate speech and posts that divide and disinform.

While a single advertiser can do little to hurt a company that generated US$17.7 billion in revenue last quarter, the rising tally creates peer pressure on other brands, and civil rights groups say they expect more corporations to join a boycott. Combined with a Covid-19 pandemic-fuelled economic slowdown, the threat to Facebook deepens.

“Given the amount of noise this is drawing, this will have significant impact on Facebook’s business,” Wedbush Securities analyst Bradley Gastwirth wrote in a research note. “Facebook needs to address this issue quickly and effectively in order to stop advertising exits from potentially spiraling out of control.”

Facebook was already bracing for weakness in the second quarter, which ends this week. Chief financial officer Dave Wehner said in an April earnings call that he saw the “potential for an even more severe advertising industry contraction”.

The number of Covid-19 cases surged in the intervening months, prompting many parts of the country to slow or roll back reopening efforts and giving advertisers added justification to rein in spending.

Facebook’s sales will rise 1% in the June period, followed by a 7% increase in the third quarter, analysts predict, by far the smallest quarterly growth increases since the company went public.

Starbucks said yesterday that it would pause spending on all social media platforms while it carries out talks internally, with media partners and civil rights groups “in the effort to stop the spread of hate speech”.

Zuckerberg announced changes last Friday designed to appease critics, but the Anti-Defamation League, one of the groups calling for the boycott, called the amendments “small”. Some analysts have said the financial impact of recent exits will be limited, citing past advertiser revolts.

Even so, this exodus is distinct in key ways, Bernstein Securities analyst Mark Shmulik wrote in a research note on Saturday. There’s heightened pressure to publicly demonstrate that brands stand with civil rights groups, he said.

“The current environment is very different,” Shmulik wrote. “It is very visible who is and isn’t participating in the boycott where brand silence [equals] being complicit.”

Here’s the revenue hit Facebook will take as Diageo and Starbucks join the list of companies pulling ads from platform

June 29, 2020

By Barbara Kollmeyer

Since the launch of the campaign, the list of companies opting to pause advertising is growing, but Facebook is still looking at less than a 5% hit to revenue, said Rohit Kulkarni, executive director at MKM Partners, in a note to clients.

Facebook makes the bulk of its revenues from mobile direct ads and small-business marketing. “FB has more than 160 million registered businesses globally and 8 million paying advertisers”.

Wall Street is estimating 1% year-over-year growth in the second quarter and 7% in the third.

Facebook: 2 Reasons To Buy The Dip

by Dilantha De Silva

Summary

The movement to boycott Facebook is gaining popularity among many advertisers.

The initial reaction by investors does not surprise me, but there are reasons to believe that the market is missing many things.

There are two primary reasons behind my investment thesis and Facebook is significantly undervalued.

Facebook, Inc. (FB) made headlines in the last few months for all the right reasons. Investing in Jio Platforms, launching Messenger Rooms and Facebook Shops, and the rollout of WhatsApp Pay in Brazil are a few of these positive developments.

Reason 1: Boycotting Facebook will prove to be temporary
Reason 2: Facebook's policy changes will prove to be value accretive in the future
