Warning: Where Facebook (FB) Stock Goes Now

by Louis Navellier

As for the demographic issue, Facebook isn’t the hip app for youngsters it used to be. Instagram and WhatsApp are really the ones that are continuing the growth for FB stock.

There’s too much risk to step in right now and if you’re holding it, there may be more downside left.

Toxic Stock Charts to Watch: Facebook

Shares of the social media giant have been crushed this year, falling almost 40% from its highs made in July.

Facebook has been and continues to be assaulted by wave after wave of negative press. When it will stop, I have no idea.

There are concerns over users migrating away from the Facebook platform, as angry users shift to other social media outlets. If Facebook didn’t own Instagram, I can’t imagine the world of hurt its stock would be in.

At the end of the day, Facebook is still wildly profitable and a premiere online advertising platform. Until that changes, its business will be okay even though growth expectations have been greatly reduced for 2019.

On the chart, Facebook stock remains locked in a terrible downtrend. Rejecting off that mark (blue line) this week confirms it’s still trapped. We now have to see where support comes into play. If it retest its lows near $125, will they hold?

If so, we have to wonder if FB is starting to bottom and can push through downtrend resistance. If not, we have to wonder if $115 is on deck. For now, we prefer Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) to Facebook because of the technical setup.

Stocks With the Strongest Balance Sheets: Facebook (FB)

The Facebook and Instagram platforms are two of the most popular social media outlets in the world.

Facebook has gross margins north of 80% — what?! — and profit margins of 37.5%. To put that in perspective, GOOGL has profit margins of just under 15% and it’s considered an incredible company.

In all, Facebook holds more than $41 billion in cash and short-term investments and no debt whatsoever. While that’s significantly less cash than GOOGL, keep in mind that FB stock has a market cap of “just” $440 million.

Further, keep in mind that over the last 12 months, FB stock has generated roughly $17.5 billion in free-cash flow. Facebook essentially generates far more cash than it needs to in a given quarter.

Chart Of The Day: Facebook Is Headed Lower Despite Bullish Pundit Call

By Pinchas Cohen

Since the trend is falling, and yesterday’s trading underlined a bearish presence, we're betting prices are far more likely to retest the December 6 low of $133.67.

And if that breaks, the November 20, $126.85 trough.

Facebook sued by Washington, D.C., over data breach accusations

By Lisa Lambert and Paresh Dave

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The attorney general for Washington, D.C., said on Wednesday the U.S. capital city had sued Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) for allegedly misleading users about how it safeguarded their personal data, in the latest fallout from the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

Washington, D.C., Attorney General Karl Racine said Facebook misled users because it had known about the incident for two years before disclosing it. The company had told users it vetted third-party apps, yet made few checks, Racine said.

Facebook shares suffered their biggest drop since July 26, closing down more than 7 percent at $133.24 on Wednesday, extending a roughly five-month stretch since the company warned that profit margins would erode in coming years because of consumer and government pressure to better guard data and suppress objectionable content.

The court could award unspecified damages and impose a civil penalty of up to $5,000 per violation of the district's consumer protection law, or potentially close to $1.7 billion, if penalized for each consumer affected as is typical. The lawsuit alleges the quiz software had data on 340,000 D.C. residents, though just 852 users had directly engaged with it.

It further alleges Facebook misled users by allowing several partners, including mobile software maker BlackBerry, "to override Facebook consumers’ privacy settings and access their information without their knowledge or consent."

At least six U.S. states have ongoing investigations into Facebook, according to state officials.

At the same time, the Federal Trade Commission took the unusual step of announcing an investigation into whether Facebook had violated a 2011 consent decree, exposing the company to a multi-billion dollar fine.

Agnieszka McPeak, a professor at Duquesne University School of Law, said states will likely make claims similar to those of D.C., pressuring Facebook into a settlement that involves both a monetary fine and modified business practices.

“If a company faces 51 separate actions around the country for deceptive practices, that can have a real impact,” McPeak said.

4 Reasons to Sell Facebook Stock Near the Lows

Facebook stock is cheap - but there are plenty of reasons to stay away

By VINCE MARTIN

Facebook stock trades at barely 19x earnings. Back out some $14 per share in cash, and the price-earnings multiple assigned to FB stock gets closer to 17x. For a tech giant expected to grow revenue 24% next year, that multiple seems absurd.

1. The “Never One Cockroach” Problem for Facebook Stock
2. The Management Problem for FB Stock
3. Will Users Leave?
4. Are Regulators Coming?

Facebook shares could hit $160 in 2019: Citron

Citron said Facebook has come a long way, turning the short-seller from a “one-time skeptic to a major bull”.

“As investors have become overly concerned about the short-term noise of privacy and propaganda, they have forgotten to look at the earnings power and potential of the most advanced advertising tool with global reach in messaging, networking, and the future of shopping,” the short-seller said.

ZUCKED UP Mark Zuckerberg halts Facebook stock sale as value PLUMMETS over privacy scandals
The controversial billionaire is facing hard times...


By Sean Keach

Back in September 2017, Zuck promised to flog between 35million and 75million of his Facebook shares over 18 months.

Since then, he's sold about 30.4million shares worth roughly $5.6billion (£4.4billion).

But Bloomberg says that the Facebook CEO has stopped selling shares after 2018 saw Facebook's worth plummet.

Former employees described a "toxic and hostile" work environment at the social media giant, which has been hit by a wave of data leaks and fake news scandals over a torrid few years.

by Ryan Vlastelica

Pivotal Research Group slashed it's target o $113 from $125, which represents downside potential of about 18 percent from the company’s Monday close of $138.05.

Shares of Facebook are down more than 36 percent from a record hit in July.

Meanwhile, analysts at Baird wrote that Facebook was seeing stabilizing engagement trends, with particular strength in Instagram. Baird has an outperform rating and $195 price target on the stock.

Currently, 41 analysts view Facebook as a buy, while eight rate it a hold and four label it a sell. The average price target is $187, which implies upside of roughly 35 percent.
