Facebook quietly develops censorship tool in bid for China entry, NY Times says

Facebook has quietly developed software tools to suppress content from appearing on news feeds for users in specific geographic regions, reports the New York Times, citing current and former employees of the social network. The feature was built to help Facebook gain entry into China, the sources told the publication, adding that CEO Mark Zuckerberg has "supported and defended" the initiative. The report explains that Facebook has abided by censorship requests from countries before, but the new tool goes beyond simple content removal by preventing it from appearing on Chinese news feeds in the first place. The sources told the New York Times that Facebook doesn't plan to suppress content itself using the new tool, and would instead hand it over to a third party. The sources said the feature is "one of many" concepts Facebook has explored with respect to China. Reference Link

Outperform
Facebook updates on metrics don't alter value proposition, says Baird
Baird analyst Colin Sebastian noted that Facebook has identified a number of metrics that were being calculated incorrectly by the company. While significant, Facebook does not currently bill its clients based on any of these metrics, noted Sebastian, who doesn't think the news alters Facebook's core value proposition for users or advertisers. Also, Facebook's plans for a "Measurement Council" should improve client engagement and communication, contends the analyst, who keeps an Outperform rating on the shares and recommends investors continue to add to Facebook positions on weakness.

Piper sees Trump-related Internet selloff as 'rare opportunity'
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says he would be "buying the fear" priced into Internet mega-caps. Concerns of President-Elect Trump's impact on tech companies are being largely extrapolated from sound bites that are unlikely to manifest during Trump's presidency, Munster tells investors in a research note. The selloff in "best-in-class" large cap internet stocks Apple (AAPL), Amazon.com (AMZN), Alphabet (GOOG), Facebook (FB) and Netflix (NFLX) presents a "rare opportunity," Munster writes. He believes Trump's threats towards Amazon are without merit and that net neutrality is unlikely to be reversed. He finds the valuations for each of the mega-caps "very attractive."

Internet stock weakness creates buying opportunity, says RBC Capital
EBC Capital analyst Mark Mahaney says that the 5%-10% decline in Internet stocks since the election has created more attractive long-term opportunities. The analyst does not expect the Trump Administration's policies to have a major impact on the fundamentals of the Internet sector. His favorite large-cap names in the sector are, in order, Netflix (NFLX), Facebook (FB), and Priceline (PCLN). His favorite small-cap names are, in order, Yelp (YELP), Criteo (CRTO), and GoDaddy (GDDY).

Deutsche says buy Facebook following recent weakness
Deutsche Bank analyst Lloyd Walmsley views Facebook's $6B share repurchase beginning in 2017 as a "welcome launch" of a capital return program. The stock represents an "outstanding value" following the recent selloff, Walmsley tells investors in a research note. He recommends that investors add to positions at current levels and keeps a Buy rating on Facebook with a $150 price target.
